  • International Conference: Looking for Popular Publics
  • October 20-21, 2011
  • Deadline: June 20th 2012
  • In line with the new research program about publics started up by the CREM (Centre de recherche sur les médiations), this international conference in two parts aims at denaturalizing the notion of “popular public” by putting it to the test of the various disciplines which embraced it : media and communication studies, political science, history, discourse analysis, argumentation theory, aesthetics, ethnography, sociology, history of literature or art.
  • The first section of the conference (“Faire peuple” (“People Making”) has been devoted to the strategies aimed at building popular publics or audiences, popular publics themselves will be examined in the second part, through their composition or from their members’ point of view: what kinds of self-recognition characterize popular publics? And what are the historical, economic, political or social stakes of such a self-recognition?
