IAFOR Journal of Media, Communication & Film: Volume 6 – Issue 1
Editor: Dr Celia Lam, University of Nottingham Ningbo, China
Published: August 01, 2019
The IAFOR Journal of Media, Communication and Film (JMCF) is associated with IAFOR’s MediAsia, FilmAsia and EuroMedia annual conferences. JMCF is committed to publishing peer-reviewed scholarship that explores the relationship between society, film and media –including new and digital media, as well as to giving a voice to scholars whose work explores hitherto unexamined aspects of contemporary media and visual culture.
Last year, The Asian Conference on Media, Communication & Film (MediAsia2018), featured the conference theme of “Fearful Futures” that encouraged scholars to reflect upon the role of arts, humanities, media and cultural studies in the contemporary global context of information/disinformation exchange, national and international tensions and polarized politics. This sixth volume of the IAFOR Journal of Media, Communication and Film features contributions from multiple disciplines and nations from around the globe, and extends the conference theme with a specific focus on social movements. The articles in this issue present dialogues on the ways in which media in its various formats (from billboards to manga, films to online) facilitate the formation, expression and representations of social movements.
