Leicester event on new media and protest

How are demonstrations represented in the mass media? How do activists use new media to organise and communicate protest? What benefits do Social Media provide?

The British Sociological Association's Media Study Group and the University of Leicester are proud to announce a symposium called 'New Communications and Demonstrations’. This event will showcase a plethora of valuable research in this field and invite discussions and comments on this topic.
