Local media and local communities
Speaker: Dr Ágnes Gulyás, Canterbury Christ Church University
What are the roles and importance of local media in their community? How has the subject area been studied? How are the internet and online platforms impacting on the relationship between local communities and their local media? What is local news in the digital age? – These are the key questions for this talk, which will provide a review and (meta) analysis of the relevant literature outlining the key areas of concerns, main approaches and gaps in the field. As an important topic in the literature the talk will explore more closely how local media are changing in the digital age and the key issues regarding the impact of internet and online platforms on how local communities communicate and how information are mediated for them. Findings of an empirical study on local news and communication in the digital age carried out by the presenter and Sarah O’Hara will be presented to illustrate particular points.

Beneath the Mask:
Artists, Archives and A/Gender — A day of events, exhibitions and spectacle.
March 16th 2017, 10am-4pm

Beneath the Mask: Artists, Archives and A/Gender will provide an exciting day of events, exhibitions and spectacle prompted by Claude Cahun‘s exploration of identities and masking.
Throughout the day and with an eclectic and playful mix of presentation and performance, Artists, Archives and A/Gender will explore concepts of identity and masquerade.
Curatorial walk/talks; authors and artists in conversations; poetry and performance will shape the day, providing a plurality of perspectives and an opportunity to enter into dynamic dialogue and discussion.
This one-day event is in partnership with UAL’s Photography and the Archive Research Centre‘s ‘Moose on the Loose’ Festival. Contributions from a number of CCCU’s centres for research will include: the Centre for Research on Communities and Cultures; the Intersectional Centre for Inclusion and Social Justice (INCISE); the Centre for Practice-Based Research in the Arts and the South East Archive of Seaside (SEAS) Photography.
