21st AMIC Annual Conference
From July 11, 2012 08:00 until July 14, 2012 08:00
The theme of the 21st Annual Conference is "Forty Years of Media and Communication in Asia: Retrospect, Introspect and Prospects". Against the background of the 40th anniversary of AMIC, it is proposed to take stock of media and communication studies keeping in mind the challenges and opportunities arising out of globalisation, new media and the rise of Asia. Hence, the conference seeks to address the challenges and opportunities arising out of these new global developments for media practitioners and communication scholars especially in terms of De-westernising the past and Asian-ising the present in theory and practice. Is it time to break the mould and build a new cast? In the background of such developments, it is time to take stock and re-look at the field to re-interpret old perspectives and generate new relevant perspectives. This year's conference is a very special one as it will also celebrate AMIC's 40th anniversary.
