Information, Medium & Society – The Publishing Studies Research Network is brought together by a shared interest in investigating publishing practices as distinctive modes of social knowledge production. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.
Information, Medium & Society: Twentieth International Conference on Publishing Studies features research addressing the following annual themes. Each year we also focus on a Special Focus that presents a timely challenge.
