SACM annual conference 2016

Welcome to the website of the SACM annual conference 2016, which will take place from April 7 to 9, 2016 at the Departement of Communication and Media Research of the University of Fribourg. The conference will deal with the following topic:

Social change and the media from its roots to new developments

The aim of the conference is to address “social change” in the specific communication perspectives – without losing out of sight what remained stable, dealing with social change from its roots to actual developments.

When referring to the conference on social media, please use the hashtag #sacm2016 (e.g. on Twitter).
