IAMCR World Congress 2008

Plenary Addresses

Nordicom Review has just published a jubilee issue -edited by Ulla Carlsson- containing a collection of the various plenary addresses on the theme of Media and Global Divides presented at the IAMCR World Congress in Stockholm 2008.

Full text articles are available at Nordicom's website, and a hard copy of this special issue of the Nordicom Review was to all individual and institutional members of IAMCR.

Inequality, both material and of opportunity, remains a glaring divide, between regions and within countries. Many of the contributions in this volume explore the complex and varied skeins of connectivity and inequality that both bind and divide us.

The chapters presented in this publication aim at stimulating further intercultural research dialogues and inspire new research initiatives.
