ICA Preconference 2018 on May 23rd
We were co-organizing the ICA Preconference 2018 on Trust, control, and privacy: Mediatisation of childhood and adolescence in the digital age.
The pre-conference looked at trust, how it is constructed, negotiated and practised in context of children and young people’s public and private media and digital lives. Various concepts of trust, control and privacy with regards to children, adolescents and their families, were discussed and related to questions of media literacy and its significance in a mediatized society.
The preconference took place on May 23rd 2018 in Prague. The programme is available here.
