Media & Time Symposium

Brockington Building

Media and communication technologies are inextricably bound up with the passage of time. Different forms and genres of mediated communication shape our sense of time in different ways, structure our daily routines, invite us to join in festive occasions, and help us manage the unexpected. This two-day symposium seeks to bring together scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to discuss selected aspects of the relationship between media and time. The event will be organised around three key themes:

Theme 1: The challenges of temporal comparison
Theme 2: Times of memory, times of media
Theme 3: The temporalities of media history
