The Center for Korean Studies will be the site of the International Conference on Agenda Setting in Flux: The Impact of New Communication Technology on the Changing Role of Traditional News Media in the Agenda Setting Process December 13–14, 2010.
This conference will highlight evolving roles of traditional news media in the agenda-setting process in the face of todayâ€™s ever-changing news media environment. Specifically, the conference aims to bring together studies that document and explain the different courses of evolution of the traditional news media in various countries. These changes and trends in the agenda-setting process are taking place all over the world, but in different shapes and formats. Thus, this conference seeks to provide a forum for comparative analyses of what is happening in the traditional agenda-setting process in different countries in the face of new media ecosystems.
Conference hosts are the Korean Society for Journalism and Communication Studies, the University of Hawaii Department of Speech and Center for Korean Studies, and the Korean American Communication Association. The conference is sponsored by the Korea News Agency Promotion Foundation.
