Rethinking Culture, Media and Creative Industries in the Era of Covid
The Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries of King’s College London will host its first online postgraduate conference – Rethinking Culture, Media and Creative Industries in the Era of Covid – in July 2021. This year, the CMCI PGR conference will set out to explore and re-evaluate the cultural, media and creative industries during and after the Covid-19 pandemic. This conference will provide a forum to examine and reflect on how the challenges of the past year have reshaped and will reshape both our cultural landscape and research practices. The conference – organised by a committee of CMCI postgraduate research students – will take place on 1-2 July 2021 via Zoom and
will be live-streamed on YouTube.
We invite researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and with a particular interest in culture, media and creative industries to present original empirical and theoretical research at this year’s Rethinking Culture, Media and Creative Industries in the Era of Covid conference. The years 2020/21 have brought to the fore global issues of social inequality and exclusion, working practices, digital cultures, sustainability, political structures, cultural production and consumption, etc. Not only Covid-related themes but those focusing on other relevant contemporary developments are also welcome. We especially encourage submissions by doctoral students and early career researchers from all around the world.
Sub-themes might include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
