The media world has been upended many times by technological progress, but digital media is changing the ways we produce, access, share, and filter information faster than ever before. Understanding the changing media environment and its impact on our society and political climate is complex, requiring analysis from multiple viewpoints. 

The second conference on media and communications brought together scholars across fields including political economy, industrial organization, and economic theory to examine critical questions of how the media shapes our lives today.
