New Media and Emerging Democracies
In accordance to the suggestion of our hosts at the University of Sindh, this year’s main theme for papers, projects, shared experiences, exhibitions and field visits will be: “New Media and Emerging Democracies.”
Few issues in contemporary world are so important and, at the same time, so difficult to tackle, as democracy. Regardless of diverse approaches to democracy in each region or context, it always means a certain lose of power and control for those who detained hegemonic power.
The difficulty lies in the multiple meanings, representations and experiences that the very notion of “democracy” has for peoples and societies, for different cultures and periods of time".
