The International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) invites submission of abstracts for its 2011 academic conference to be held at Kadir Has University in Istanbul, Turkey, from July 13 to 17, 2011. The general theme of the conference is Cities, Creativity, Connectivity. Read more.

The conference aims to assess the present state of the city, interrogate the processes that generated the present, and evaluate the future(s) that lay ahead. As citizens, what are the rights, norms and standards we desire? What does global connectivity offer to the riches and uncertainties of urban everyday life? What are the aesthetics and economies of creativity in which we invest the future of the city? What are the communicative possibilities that cities afford and hinder? These and other questions await our scholarly responses and intellectual interventions. A wide-ranging set of issues, sub-themes and topics confront us for exploration and interrogation, including but not limited to the following :

* Creative and cultural industries in a globalized economy
* Global city, connectivity and communication
* Art, culture and transnational communication
* Cosmopolitanism as an ideal and practice
* Economies of art, media and creativity
* Media, democratization and urban life
* Hybridities, identities, creativity
* Migration: communication, connectivity and creativity
* Local productions in a global city
* Communication inequality: rural and urban trends
* Social networks, connectivity and creativity
* Digital artworlds and virtual connectivity
* Social responsibility, personhood and communication
* Communication, Rights and duties of citizens in the emerging global order
* Communities, connectivity and marginalized groups
