Power Diffusion in the Public Sphere workshop
While the emancipatory affect of social media is often over emphasized in a techno-populist fashion, the power diffusion to new communicators, new multipliers and a multipolar media economy is often neglected. In this workshop, we focus on the role of technology, power and actors of change together with Professor of Media, Communications and Social Theory Nick Couldry (London School of Economics) and the Assistant Professors of New Media and Digital Culture Thomas Poell (University of Amsterdam) and Mirko Tobias Schäfer, (Utrecht University/Utrecht Data School).
