Digital Media and Security Scoping Workshop and Symposium

Thursday 21 and Friday 22 May

Social Studies Room S0.10

This two-day workshop will seek to establish a research theme of Digital Media and Security that will enable Warwick and external academics, practitioners, and stakeholders to debate and shape an interdisciplinary and international research agenda that will:

  • Interrogate the role and function of new media and their associated technologies in shaping the everyday experience of ‘mediatized’ insecurity and security;
  • Illuminate and shape the paradigmatic shift required in the fields of media, sociology, politics, communication and journalism studies, etc. to provide an adequate framework for security research in the new media ecology;
  • Initiate and lead the generation of externally-funded grants to enable (1) and (2) above.
