Youth, Media and Culture in the Asia Pacific Region
An international symposium
Monash University, Melbourne 30th November and 1st December 2006
A two-day symposium exploring the practices and expanding field of research around youth and the media.
The symposium conveners invite papers that address issues pertaining to youth media and culture in the Asia Pacific region, especially in regards to the symposium themes:
1. Youth consumption and production of media.
2. Hybrid cultures, subcultures and issues of globalisation
3. The role of commercial media, public service broadcasting and community media.
4. The impact of new media, especially the manner in which it facilitates new formations of community and identity.
Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words and a biography of no more than 100 words to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than the 31st of July.
The role of youth cultures is increasingly important in understanding the way the contemporary media sphere functions in many parts of the world. Moreover, the category of ‘youth’ is a constantly shifting construction, predicated on changing influences, technologies, markets and culturally constructed expectations. This symposium aims to:
• To create a dialogue between researchers working across disciplines and across cultural borders.
• To identify the key concerns for scholars working in the Asia Pacific in regards to traditional and new media.
• To foster links between scholars, industry professionals and practitioners.
