They have allowed for the redefinition of creative industries, reimagination of narratives and blurred the boundaries between media and audiences. In these new ecoscapes, this conference will analyze, evaluate, and deliberate upon these altered mediated spaces and its repercussions on the social sensibilities of the times.
