IAMCR and AMIC coordinate conference dates
IAMCR and the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) are pleased to announce that we have coordinated the dates of our 2014 conferences so interested scholars can participate in both. AMIC's conference will happen first, hosted by the Faculty of Communication Arts at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand from 9 to 12 July. There are regular direct flights from Bangkok to Hyderabad (about 3 hours and 30 minutes) so you can spend a day or two relaxing and seeing the sites in Thailand or India before IAMCR's conference starts on 15 July.

The grant is open to all IAMCR members in good standing.

Islam in Europe: Public Spaces and Civic Networks
New book by IAMCR member.
By Spyros A. Sofos and Roza Tsagarousianou
Islam in Europe delves into the daily routines of European Muslim communities in order to provide a better understanding of what it means to be a European Muslim today. Instead of positing particular definitions of being Muslim, this volume invites and encourages a diverse body of 735 informants from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK to reflect on who they are and on the meaning and place Islam has in such considerations.

Should contemporary media culture be understood as a culture that offers unprecedented freedom for producing participators – so-called “produsers”? Or should it rather be understood as a culture in which various forms of user participation in fact are conditioned, or even manufactured, by organized, professional producers?
