Media & Governance in Latin America
Exploring the role of communication for development
The University of Sheffield, 13–14 May 2014
Latin America is changing. Nations are witnessing a resurgence in civil society, participation and protest. Media policy is a hot political topic. The people of the region are quickly adopting new media technologies. These new channels of digital communication may be playing a part as Latin American citizens challenge the region's historical imbalance of access to information and political power.
Media & Governance in Latin America is a two-day conference hosted by the University of Sheffield. The event seeks to provide a focus for academic debates about the role of communication in governance and development, focusing on Latin America.
The conference is internationalist and interdisciplinary in nature, encompassing research across the fields of Latin American, media and development studies. We invite participation from academics, practitioners, students and the wider community.
The event is taking place thanks to financial support from the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS), University of London.
