From the IAMCR June 2020 newsletter: As Covid-19 made its way around the world in the first few months of the year Kaarle Nordenstreng suddenly became a central actor as Tampere University in Finland became the host, first of a face-to-face and then an online conference. What follows is an account from his perspective of how things developed.
This is the tenth title in the IAMCR/Palgrave series Global Transformations in Media and Communication Research. The volume interrogates the intertwining of the local and the digital in environmental communication.
Since it won’t be possible to meet up in the usual context this year and exchange information, network, and socialize together, the Mediated Communication, Public Opinion, and Society Section (MPS), decided to provide its members with a newsletter instead. Read it here.
