International Conference "Communication & Changing Society"

In corporation with Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication Thammasat University Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Malaya

The Thammasat University Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication, along with the University of Malaya Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, have initiated plans for an upcoming international academic conference entitled: “Communication & Changing Society.” Our intention in hosting this event is to gather important voices and ideas that can speak to the rapid and substantial social and technological transformations confronting the world today. These changes are having profound impacts and implications on economies and political systems around the globe, as information (and misinformation) is rapidly spreading to the masses in ways we have never bore witness to before.

The societal embrace and dependency on digital technology render obsolete some older theoretical communication models based on how legacy media operated, and in many cases, these ideas and business practices need reexamination and revision. It is clear that the norms have been upended in ways that previously would have been extremely hard to fathom as radical changes in how communication is disseminated and exchanged today have taken hold. While it is true that the increased interconnectivity can enrich lives, and faster and wider information streams can help bring about great improvements to society, there is also massive disruption in media management and communication systems, and the manipulation and misuse of technologies has already brought about unexpected consequences.

The Thammasat University Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication and the University of Malaya Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences share the same vision of bringing together academics, researchers, graduates and communications practitioners who can offer their knowledge to address the imminent issues of today and the future. Therefore, both parties have agreed to organize this international academic conference to and we look forward to strengthening relations with partner universities and other related organizations as a result of hosting this event.
