ECREA Communication and Democracy Section Workshop

The suggested workshop addresses emerging communication and media perspectives on political implications of privacy. Citizens constantly define and redefine information boundaries when acting with and on media. The way they “do privacy” is recursively related to surrounding infrastructures. Societal and technological infrastructures inform privacy practices and privacy practices transform political dimensions of social privacy order. We invite contributions on politically motivated media practices (micro and meso) as well as on political implications of privacy infrastructures and regulation (law, values, discourses and technology).
