Beyond "Center" and "Periphery": (De-) Westernization in International and Intercultural Communication

27-29 October 2011,
Erfurt, Germany
- conference

Organiser: International and Intercultural Communication section of the German Communication Association

The conference scrutinised Western media studies from previously peripheral, non-Western perspectives and research areas. Moreover, it considered the (potential) reciprocal impacts of these non-Western perspectives on Western research. The central aim was to initiate an insightful exchange on the interrelationship of non-Western and Western perspectives in order to inspire research practice. The conference was hosted by the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Erfurt.
