THEME: Critical Consumership: Is it a Necessity or Inconsequential in an All-Pervasive Media Landscape?
With the commodification of news slowly becoming a gigantic phenomenon, there is a greater need for objective and critical media news consumption by the audience.
Today, news isn’t as much being ‘reported’ as it is being ‘sold’ to the audience. Phenomenons like fear, terror, war and peace, emotions like joy, happiness, sadness and anger and events like natural disasters, celebrations, man made disasters, crime, etc are being treated as a product, a commodity and being sold to us; all day, every day, each minute and second of our lives. The question that arises is that, should we, as an audience, accept this as an inevitable after effect of the expansion of the news space or offer resistance using the tools of new media.
With this in mind, Team Juxtapose invites abstracts of research papers from under-grad and post-grad students discussing and critically analysing the present situation under the given theme.
