James Carey & Media Studies--The Past in the Present

James Carey has had a profound impact on Communication & Media Studies, and in shaping the direction of Communication & Media Studies at the University of Illinois--as a professor, mentor, Dean of the College of Communication (now the College of Media), and Director of the Institute of Communications Research (ICR).  He was, and remains, globally recognized for his wide-ranging contributions and interventions, including as an advocate for interdisciplinary studies of media and communications, as a historian of media, through his perspectives about Communication, Information, & Media Studies and their history, through his interests in the relation between Communication Studies, Media Studies, and Cultural Studies,  through his attention to the technologies of communication and information, through his engagement with theories and histories of journalism, and as a contributor to theories and histories about the role of media in democratic forms of citizenship.

To revisit and reconsider Carey’s impact on the field of Communication & Media Studies, and to highlight the recent launch of the James Carey Faculty Fellowship at the University of Illinois, the Institute of Communications Research is sponsoring a two-day colloquium on April 27 & 28.

The event will take place at the University of Illinois.  Room numbers are indicated on the attached flier.  QR codes for accessing the event through Zoom are also included on the flier.  For those who miss the event, we intend to make the recorded file available soon on the ICR website.
