ICA Podcast: ‘One World, One Network?’

Late last week, Akane made the journey over to Paris to attend the International Communication Association’s (ICA) 72nd Conference. The ICA was formed 50 years ago and supports the global study of communication, facilitating connections between scholars and ideas and hosting many important events.

Prior to the conference, Akane was invited onto the ICA podcast ‘One World, One Network?’ alongside Associate Professor Ingrid Bachmann (Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile) and Professor Radhika Parameswaran (Indiana University).

The podcast discussion was centred around the current influence of Western research in the field of feminist media studies and how they as scholars can decentralise Western work. Akane, Ingrid and Radhika touched on several issues such as how they as teachers and mentors of future scholars are able to have a positive social impact, as well as what is means to be an activist in the digital age and how this definition fits in with their work.
