> We are pleased to announce that IAMCR's 2013 conference will take place in Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland from 25-29 June, 2013. The overarching theme of the conference is "Crises, 'Creative Destruction' and the Global Power and Communication Orders".
> The conference theme engages with the concepts of crisis and "creative destruction", associated with historically-rare periods of intensified flux, change and all-round, multi-dimensional processes of innovation.
> The theme invites reflections on whether or how the current deep economic/financial crisis and its attendant gales of "creative destruction" may promote deep, fundamental or multiple shifts in       the geo-political and communication orders globally. Examples of specific sub-themes here include considerations of whether and how the current crisis may serve to:
> Reshape the roles, operations and key features of mediated communication, not least the enhanced role of social media forms and practices;
> Amplify tendencies or shifts towards new geo-political configurations, including an expanded role for the media and cultural services in the operation of global power and hegemony;
> Accelerate change in the inter-play between "new" and "mature" media institutions and their typical practices, cultural forms, and policy frameworks;
> Amplify the search for new and more globally attuned theories and concepts within the expanding and rapidly diffusing field of media communication studies.
> For further information on this conference theme, please see the Call for Papers at on the IAMCR 2013 conference website.
