Since 1989, a new media landscape has emerged in Central and Eastern Europe, with new ownership patterns, forms of media organization, journalistic practices, relationships between politics and the media, regulation processes and modalities of media use. A new system has been established, predominantly designed according to Western models and with heavy influence by Western players.
Twenty years later, it is time to re-examine these changes. What went right, what went wrong, and what can we learn from this? Were Western media models and concepts appropriate for the post-1989 social, political, economic and cultural realities of Central/Eastern Europe? What are the future trajectories of media development in the region? And how do they compare to those in other regions undergoing systemic transformation - from Latin America to China and the Middle East?
The conference "Beyond East and West" will trace post-1989 development and look towards the future. To build research for communication in transition, conference participants will explore the necessary building-blocks for a research agenda.
Speakers include Miklos Haraszti, Slavko Splichal, Karol Jakubowicz, Colin Sparks, Monroe Price, Miklos Sükösd, Gianpietro Mazzoleni, Alina Mungiu-Pippidi, Nick Jankowski, Beata Klimkiewicz, Peter Molnar, Peter Gross, John Downey, Inka Salovaara-Moring, Andrew Calabrese.
