The relationship between Ireland and the rest of the British Isles has a long and complex history. One key dimension has been the connections and interactions between the various media of communication – print and electronic – which have mediated this relationship. This conference seeks to address this important, but relatively neglected, topic at a timely moment in the history of Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.
The conference organisers want to take a long view as well as look in detail at particular moments. It therefore invites papers from the sixteenth century onwards, dealing with all forms of media (print, periodical, broadcasting, ephemera) as well as with structures of ownership, regulation, distribution and identity.
Proposals of up to 400 words stating the topic in relation to the conference theme should be sent to: Steven Conlon at: firstname.lastname@example.org by 30th June 2015
The conference is jointly organised by the School of Communications, Dublin City University, the Centre for Media History, Newspaper & Periodical History Forum of Ireland ,Aberystwyth University, and the journal Media History.
