Today national media systems in the majority of world states while shaped within specific national traditions are more and more dependent on not just national but global factors. Media systems of varied scales reflect the specific nature of economy, political system, social structure of their countries and are affected heavily by any transformations in those spheres transnational in their backgrounds.
The 2010s were marked by the series of financial and economic crises, the growing power of a number of developing economies, demolitions of what seemed recently to be a stabilized social structures and difficulties of middle class, the growing interest in more radical decisions and concepts in politics. And all these factors are escalated by transformations in technological infrastructure, where rapidity of changes exceeds the rates even of recent decades.
New global and national phenomena in politics, economy, society and tech that we face today have a direct impact on media systems and already are examined by many researchers globally. During new Moscow Readings conference we plan to put together and summarize data and ideas on media systems’ transformations in the last 3-5 years presented by scholars, experts and media industry professionals that contribute to the understanding of main characteristics of modern media systems.
