Save the date for the landmark media conference hosted by the Goldsmith Leverhulme Media Research Centre.

From Twitter and Facebook revolutions to phone hacking and the power of the Murdoch empire, Wiki-leaks, and the Abu-Ghraib photographs -- a new intensity links power, revolution, and the media in the twenty-first century. The new media do make a difference, but what exactly is the nature of that difference? What are the crucial questions of technological form, usage, and control that shape the political and cultural agency of governments, corporations, political uprisings, and individuals?
