As media technology and institutions change, so must the theoretical framework used to describe their functionality be remodelled. This is the premise of an upcoming conference on media logic, to be held in Bonn, Germany next fall. The event is now accepting panel and paper proposals. Submissions are due on April the 15th, and the event itself will last from 21st to 23rd of September.
By media logics the event organizers refer to a theory by David Altheide and Robert Snow. After being published in 1979, the theory has been carried forward and evolved into different strains of thought. The upcoming conference is to continue this work in the light of recent developments in media environment.
