Communication, Technology and Human Dignity: Disputed Rights, Contested Truths

School of Communication, UCM, 7-11 July 2019

Malavika Jayaram will take part of the second plenary dedicated to "Communication Technology and Freedom", with Yoani Sánchez Cordero and Monroe E. Price.

Professor Dr. Katharine Sarikakis will present and discuss the intervention by Dr. Javier Gomá during the first plenary on “Dignity, a revolutionary principle”.

By the time the February 8 deadline was over, IAMCR 2019 had received a record-breaking 3,700 abstracts from authors in 104 different countries. An impressive vote of confidence in the work of IAMCR and the Local Organising Committee.

This is the first in a series of “Madrid Updates” that we will be sending to current and former IAMCR members, people who have submitted papers to IAMCR 2019, and posting on the website. We hope you find it useful and informative.

IAMCR will make several awards and grants available to members in 2019: The Prize in Memory of Herbert I. Schiller, the UCF/IAMCR Urban Communication Research Grant, and the New Directions for Climate Communication Research Fellowship. Deadline to apply: 7 April 2019.

Twenty grants of up to US$1,500 will be made available to early-stage scholars, who are members of IAMCR, reside in low and middle income countries and have papers accepted for presentation at the conference in Madrid. Grants are to offset travel costs of members who would otherwise be unable to attend.
