Mis/Representation in Media conference 17-18 June

This 2-day conference of academics and professionals looks at the impact of media upon contemporary society.

This 2-day conference at the University of Manchester intends to rethink the notion of media, in its myriad forms, both as discourse and device, in order to examine the impact it has upon contemporary society. How is media susceptible to the misrepresentation of social groups and individuals, guiding modern stereotypes into the everyday language of Western news-reel culture? How has media infiltrated the manner in which we conceptualize our world? And in what manner do we construct our realities based on these mis/representations?

Full programme and abstracts can be found at:

The conference is comprised of 4 sessions of papers exploring issues of mis/representation in politics, history, identity and social reality with an emphasis on discussion and debate. In addition, there are two workshops on professional and academic media through the direction of lecturers and practitioners from the University of Manchester, the BBC, and the Manchester University Press. This will prove invaluable for individuals interested in gaining media experience, improving career profiles and employment opportunities, and knowing more about routes into the media sector.

Finally, a panel session of esteemed academics, professionals and MPs will provide an opportunity for dialogue in the field of media, during which we will consider mis/representations of reality within media, questioning whether media represents reality, or creates only a representation of reality?
