Previous Event

21-22 May 2009: Digital Media and Security Scoping Workshop/Symposium

Warwick International Security Initiative/ESRC project event:

Objectives: To establish a research theme of Digital Media and Security that will enable Warwick and external academics, practitioners, and stakeholders to debate and shape an interdisciplinary and international research agenda that will:

(1) Interrogate the role and function of new media and their associated technologies in shaping the everyday experience of ‘mediatized’ insecurity and security;

(2) Illuminate and shape the paradigmatic shift required in the fields of media, sociology, politics, communication and journalism studies, etc. to provide an adequate framework for security research in the new media ecology;

(3) Initiate and lead the generation of externally-funded grants to enable (1) and (2) above.
