IAMCR 2011 Abstracts (14.36 MB)
With barely three weeks to go, planning is now in high gear for another exceptional IAMCR conference, to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, July 13-17, under the theme Cities, Creativity, Connectivity.
The conference will be attended by close to 1000 registered academics and researchers, participating in some 340 concurrent panel sessions and 24 poster sessions.
The Bersay awards of 500 Euros each were for PhD students residing in low-income countries while UNICEF-Turkey offered registration grants in the amount of 150 Euros to five MA/PhD students with Turkish citizenship.
Congratulations to the eleven award winners.
The first few months of 2011 have seen an astonishing unfolding of political change across the Maghreb and Middle East. These build on long-standing grievances and inequalities and older forms of political mobilization, so cannot simply be labelled as 'Twitter revolutions', yet at the same time there is little doubt that different forms of new media were creatively used in these uprisings.
