CONFERENCE ON HEALTH COMMUNICATION

Following from: Dr. Nandini Lakshmikantha
--

An Interdisciplinary INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON
HEALTH COMMUNICATION: BRIDGING GAPS & RAISING AWARENESS
in the areas of Women, Media and Sports

MANIPAL ACADEMY OF HIGHER EDUCATION ( MANIPAL UNIVERSITY )

Manipal Academy of Higher Education ( Manipal University), as the highest ranked comprehensive private deemed University in the QS BRICS and QS Asia rankings, staunchly promulgates the work-ethic of “Global leadership in human development; excellence in education and healthcare.” Further, ranked 1st among ‘Research Publications by Private Universities in India,’ (as per. SCImago Research Group, Spain) Manipal University is synonymous with world class facilities & distinction in higher education.
Over 28,000 students from 57 different nations study in the University town, nestled in Karnataka’s Udupi District. MU boasts of nearly 2500 faculty and ancillary staff, who cater to the development of various professional institutions in Communication, Health Sciences, Engineering, Management and Humanities. The University is holarchical in structure, with several campuses spread over the world.

SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION
School of Communication / Manipal Institute of Communication (SOC/ MIC) – established in 1997 – is a premier Media Institute, offering a bouquet of program in Media & Communication. The courses/degrees offered range from BSc. Animation, B.A. Media & Communication to M.A. Media & Communication, M.F.A, PH.D, & other short-term courses. SOC as a media-education monolith today facilitates collaboration by way of exchange program with Universities in Germany, France, Netherlands, UK, USA & Australia.

TEAM 3D
Team 3D is a nationally registered Non-Profit Organization established in 2015 in Manipal ,which aims to increase public awareness regarding reproductive health and aims to improve public practices through its activities.  Team 3D organizes workshops to promote health awareness.

The relevance of health communication can be felt virtually in every facet of life and well-being of members of society particularly that of a woman. Health Communication being an integral component of health promotion, protection and disease prevention is  recognized as an area of  core competency. In today’s competitive world though woman is surging ahead in all fields,  her status of health largely remains sidelined in many countries including India.  Interestingly though a lot is talked about  common communicable and non communicable health aspects, issues related to Reproductive Tract remains continues to remain a “taboo” and women largely do not speak about it. This conference wishes to focus its attention on  health issues particularly in the areas of  Women, media and sports. 
Backing every health communication effort with sound knowledge and skill can help in efficacious management of multifarious forms of health related issues and problems. Public health practitioners, program managers and policymakers need to be aware of the significance of health communication interventions especially those aimed at the prevention and control of diseases so that impacts can be enhanced and the opportunities maximized.
An analysis of the existing situation points to a lacuna in communication between professionals in the arena of media, medicine, public health and healthcare. And this obstacle continues to hinder the pathway to a profound change in the behavior pattern towards a healthy life. The availability of knowledge, expertise or information is not the problem here but the real issue is how this is being dispensed to the community. This international conference, is an earnest interdisciplinary effort that will collate professionals from Media, Medical, Public Health, NGOs and others working in the area of health with communication specialists to make an effort to bridge the existing gap.

Journalist Kumar Joshi is no more


Pune- Mr. Kumar Dattatray Joshi, the PTI man whose energy and dedication to the premier news agency, had overawed his peers and juniors in Pune and Mumbai, is no more.
He breathed his last on November 26, 2017, when his son Niranjan and the other family members, were around him, at their Mumbai residence. He was 87.

Although he worked for the now-defunct Maharashtra Herald MH for 17 years after his retirement from the news agency, his contemporaries continued to remember him as KDJ of PTI.
He remained active, bubbling with enthusiasm that enabled him to write "Kumar Katha", a Marathi autobiography published two years ago. The book provided the readers with an overview of major news stories he covered in Maharashtra.

He was my rival in the news coverage and often scored over me in spot stories. He was senior to me by about 16 years and had taught me and likes of me to keep a tab on the day to day events for the coverage. We would marvel the way he functioned from his office-cum-residence on Pune's station road, opposite the Zilla Parishad office. He would take out his scooter from the Sassoon Hospital at around eight a.m. to check accidents, deaths and illness stories. Then to the Pune railway station, and police stations at the Deccan Gymkhana, Faraskhana, and so on. He would cover press conferences and other events and file stories returning to the office now and then.
KDJ was ex-serviceman and was a stickler for methods, systems, and disciplines that he would expect the technicians, teleprinter operators and stringers to observe.
I would not have learnt these details because his competitors were not expected to visit his office because of an unwritten tacit code of rivalry among the agency journalists.
The circumstances forced us to work under one shelter, the PTI office when the then erstwhile news agencies merged during the Internal Emergency of 1975. UNI's M S Pagar, stringer Iqbal, Harry David of MH who covered sports for PTI, Ashok Sidhaye of Hindustan Samachar and I worked under KDJ for about 18 months.  We dispersed back to our previous offices when the emergency was revoked. There were so many of us and so little to cover during the emergency and because of the censorship. All of us had mutual disrespect and suspicion about each other's intentions. 

Kumar's best friend was Kesari's Rambhau Joshi who was very close to Yeshwantrao Chavan, the architect of Modern Maharastra and a great source of political news for both of them.  They would beat us hollow whenever Yeshwantrao Chavan was involved in a big political event.
Kumar's book covered news sources, events he covered, and journalists in the city. I, like most of our peers, was amazed to read the details he had written mostly from his memory. We read the references about us individuals. I was pleasantly surprised by the complimentary mentions of my journalistic abilities.
After he brought out the book he travelled from Mumbai to Pune in his son Niranjan's car and visited our houses in Patrakarnagar. He was engulfed by the nostalgia and it was touching to realise that we had forgotten the rivalries and bitterness of the past.
And now comes the sad news. KDJ is no more.
As I complete writing this blog post, I remember a three-paragraph story he had filed and was published the next day in all the Indian papers - without exception. 
Those were the days when Indian Airlines pilots were on strike. The newspapers were carrying front page stories on the opposition's frontal attack on Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's policies. She was scheduled to arrive in Pune for a number of engagements while the opposition parties had announced that they would hold noisy demonstrations all along the route beginning with the airport.
A large number of reporters had assembled at the entrance of the airport awaiting her Indian Airforce flight. Security was not as tight as it is now, but we reporters had to cooperate with the police.
KDJ remained with us among the journalists but quietly moved closer to the VVIPs till Mrs Gandhi came in her customary stride. He mouthed a question, she only firmly nodded in the negative. He left swiftly before the police whisked him away. This was all over in a few seconds, none of us realised what transpired between them. 

Next day, the newspapers told us that he had asked her if she would intervene in the pilots' strike. She had simply said 'no'. This gave him a frontpage box story the next day, which none of us had.

National Conference on Historicizing Indian Television: People, Programs and Processes Post 1990 (HIT: PPP)

Following from Prof. Vishram Dhole:

Savitribai Phule Pune University
Department of Media and Communication Studies
                         
National Conference on
Historicizing Indian Television: People, Programs and Processes Post 1990 
February 8 - 10, 2018, PUNE

Premise:
Back in 1990 when a handful of homes in India began to receive live coverage of Gulf war by CNN through their cable operators, little did they realize that they were witnessing a historical moment in the Indian context as well. It was probably the first major example that demonstrated the power and potential of cable and satellite (C&S) mode of distribution of television in India. Although television began in India in 1959, satellite-based television experiment was carried out in 1975 and cable networks began to emerge by mid-1980s, this type of integration of satellite television with cable in 1990 was historic because it paved the way for massive changes in television’s role as the industry and an institution. Incorporated within the larger structural transformation of the Indian economy, polity and culture under the rubric of LPG, these changes were surely as fundamental as the larger process itself.

But compared to the magnitude, penetration and varied effects of these changes experienced over the last 25 years, Indian television post-1990 remains academically understudied area.  Almost every aspect of television- from technology to content, from ownership to audiences and from economics to politics- has changed but not much has been done to historicize these changes from different perspectives. This may be partially due to the fact that for several years, these changes were too overwhelming in terms of their speed and spread to take a dispassionate historical look. But as we are entering into the 28th year of these changes and as two of the major players of this era- Zee TV and Sun TV- are celebrating their silver jubilee this year, the time has passed long enough to offer a vantage point for a dispassionate historic account of these massive changes. The need to historicize this period is being felt urgently for one more reason. Just as the combination of satellite and cable changed the ‘monochromatic’ world of Door Dashan centric television in India the 1990s, the integration of Internet and mobile along with several other technological and social factors is poised to deeply unsettle the stabilized television scenario in India. It is therefore, important and urgent to historicize the post-1990 Indian television before- as is being feared- it changes again beyond what we understand by ‘television’.
    
It is against this backdrop that Department of Media and Communication Studies, Savitribai Phule Pune University is organizing a three-day national level conference on the theme- Historicizing Indian Television: People, Programs and Processes Post 1990 (HIT-PPP).  While historical developments of this nature can be located in many spaces, the conference proposes to streamline these varied accounts mainly along three dimensions: People, Programs and Processes. These three dimensions can reasonably take into account most of the issues related to television as an industry as well as social institution and yet remain coherent and grounded in the field of media studies.

History of television could be told through the agency of people where the term people could include all those individuals on or behind the screen who made it big as well as people as groups and communities for whom television meant something big. Simply put, this dimension prioritizes contributions of people as players or agents of history where the people could be ‘senders’ or ‘receivers’ of television. This is perhaps a short-term and close up view of history. The second dimension of historicizing is television content. Here the term ‘content’ includes fiction, nonfiction and anything in between. This section locates history in the symbolic domain and its socio-cultural significance. Here the emphasis is on arguing the historicity of the content in terms of its popularity, uniqueness, aesthetics etc. This dimension seeks to frame the content as a reflection of socio-cultural-political or market forces. This is usually a mid-term and mid-close view of history.  The process dimension of historicizing takes a long-term and long view of history. It emphasizes the complex dynamics of socio-economic, technological and political forces and ideas spread over a significant period of time which results in sets of actions, events and responses. It is an attempt to explain observable history in terms of the various forces underneath. 

Historicizing is thus a process of contextualizing actions and events from the past from a vantage point of time. It is interpreting the events for their significance to the time, field, people and society. It is therefore, more than just the factual description. It is putting meaning to facts and deriving insights from the past. The conference aims to collectively develop such insights about the post-1990 era of Indian television.

To do this, the conference invites papers exploring various topics under these themes from academicians well as television professionals. It welcomes all theoretical as well as methodological approaches and data sources available for the process of historicizing.

Besides approximately 25 paper presentations, the 3-day conference will also include close interactions with people who played a significant role in Indian television industry during this historic era.

Select papers from the conference will be published later in the form of a book.

Suggested Topics:
