International Communication Section
The mission of the International Communication Section is to provide a space for dialogue among all those who are interested in the broadest issues and problems of global communication. The limitations to communication across distances have been displaced, but in their place new challenges and opportunities have arisen.
Colleagues in the International Communication Section continue to be interested in the intersection of globalisation and media, including, for example, issues of information flow, freedom of expression, various dimensions of media and development, global media ethics, the media's role in foreign policy-making, media and diaspora, global literature and other arts, science communication, etc.
This section also considers the role of the media in constructing a sense of community across borders, including the development of virtual communities and the uses of new media, their implications for organisations and employment, and the construction of audiences. Active participation is invited from academics and professionals who seek to associate with a community of researchers intersted in these and related subjects.
