INTERSECTIONS AND EMERGING VOICES:
COMMUNICATION AND CULTURAL STUDIES IN CANADA
Student Conference hosted by the students of the Joint Graduate Programme
in Communication and Culture
York University and Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada
The ideas born from the collective known as the Toronto school of communication have been foundational to communication and cultural studies. Out of and departing from this tradition, many voices have emerged, taking the field in fresh and diverse directions. As part of one of the newest graduate programs to proudly continue this uniquely Canadian perspective, students of the Joint Programme in Communication & Culture at York and Ryerson Universities have designed this conference to facilitate exploration into the relevant themes, concepts and issues developing within the intersections of communication and culture.
Open to graduate students across Canada in Cultural Studies, Communication, and other relevant fields, this conference will provide a forum for the many views that hold significance for social, political and cultural conditions on local, national and global levels. The presentations will fall into three areas of studies: Media & Culture, Technology & Practice, Policy & Politics.
We have intentionally left these frameworks broad to encourage a full range
of approaches reflecting the extensive scope of communication and cultural
As graduate students in communication, culture, and other relevant fields, you are invited to submit work before your peers. The goal of the conference is for students to exchange and express ideas on the given theme in a formal academic setting.
