About the college and the Department
The NMKRV College for Women has been a pioneer in providing value based education for nearly four decades. The College is a pioneer to start a subject like Journalism as a cognate subject in 1979 when nowhere else such a course existed. In 2012, a PG course in Journalism and Mass Communication was started.
Department is equipped with fully functional media lab, wherein students are trained to produce creative projects. First batch successfully got placed in proficient media outlets.
This year the Department has envisaged a novel idea of conducting a National Conference for media students and faculty members on 27th March 2015. We are also planning to bring out a research publication.
About the Conference
Media and culture are interrelated. In all eras, cultural values shape the way media are created, used, and controlled. This will lead to further questions about the role of culture in our media today. How does culture shape our media and mass communication? The Conference intends to critically analyse the relationship of media and culture in the contemporary scenario. The objective of the conference is to provide a platform for bringing together scholars, and practitioners to discuss the developments in contemporary media. The idea takes into cognizance the significance of multiple linkages of interdisciplinary and critical scholarship in the field of media and culture. FOR PAPERS
