What does it mean to foster critical media literacy, and whose interests should it serve? How important are categories such as class, age, ethnicity and intellectual disability to the question of who has access to and agency in social flows of communication and information? These and other key questions for media creators, students, activists and scholars will be addressed at this conference. Keynote speaker on the evening of Friday October 20th will be Richard Barbrook, academic, activist and an author of Jeremy Corbyn's ‘Digital Democracy Manifesto’. Other confirmed speakers at the conference include: David Buckingham, one of the world's leading authorities on young people and media; Martina Chapman, who has led media-literacy projects at the BBC, Ofcom, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and across Europe; Sheena Horgan, a consultant on youth and ethical marketing; and Niamh Sweeney, head of policy at Facebook Ireland. The conference will feature papers from a diverse range of pertinent subject areas, including social media, affective networking, changing news discourses, online privacy and surveillance, new and evolving cultural forms and formations, media education/pedagogy, access/engagement, and computing for social and information networks. Themed sessions will include: critical understanding of ‘experts’; media literacy as a classroom subject; and the ‘computational turn’ in the creation and understanding of media phenomena.
