We are pleased to announce that the full programme for the Small Media Initiative’s second conference, Rethinking small media, is now available here:  

The conference will take place at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London on 6-7 October 2012.

The event, to include five sessions (with lots of room for discussion!), two lightning talks, a magazine launch and film screening, will bring together academics, journalists, bloggers, techies and activists to explore some of the intractable binaries (online/offline, small/big media, old/new social movements, control/freedom) that dominate our thinking about media and politics.

Join in the conversation with: 

Annabelle Sreberny (SOAS), Tim Jordan (King’s College London), Joss Hands (Anglia Ruskin University), Paolo Gerbaudo (King’s College London), Antonin Moulart (Internet Sans Frontières), Janet Gunter (, Gus Hosein (Privacy International), Oliver Leistert (Universität Paderborn), Federico "bomboclat" Prando (autistici/inventati dot org), Gillian Youngs (University of Brighton), Anastasia Kavada (University of Westminster), Jérémie Bédard-Wien (Coalition Large de l’Association pour une Solidarité Syndicale Étudiante), Sameer Padania (Open Society Foundations-London), Pooneh Ghoddoosi (BBC), Claire Ulrich (Global Voices), Jennifer Jones (University of the West of Scotland), Nazek Ramadan (Migrant Voice), Matt McAlister (Guardian Media Group), Rohan Jayasekera (Index on Censorship)
