Événements 2013-2014 : Les médias participatifs

Français

Les médias participatifs : La relation entre les médias et la participation soulève la question fondamentale du rôle des médias dans le développement de la démocratie à différents moments de l’Histoire et dans différents contextes sociopolitiques. Il met en lumière la dimension participative des médias, notamment la participation du citoyen à la création, au traitement et à la transmission de la structure, du contenu et de la forme de l’information, le remodelage artistique de la participation du spectateur et la participation de l’utilisateur à la (re)configuration des sphères, des communautés et des espaces publics. Il met l’accent sur la possibilité de développer des formes directes de démocratie par des utilisations spécifiques d’interactivité entre les usagers des médias. Lisez la description complète de la thématique 2013-2014 de Média@McGill.
