“Communication and Memory”
The ECREA Section for the Philosophy of Communication will host its second Landmarks conference, from 9-11 December 2009, at the University of London’s School of Advanced Study. Landmarks is the name of our bi-annual conference
exploring current pathways of research and scholarship in the philosophy of communication. We aim to provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussion and engagement, spanning philosophy and communication studies broadly understood, and creating opportunities for established as well young scholars and researchers to present their work and their ideas.
This conference – the fifth transnational forum – aims to continue the work of Sussex 2001, Madison, Wisconsin 2003 Melbourne 2005 and Lincoln 2007 to bring together scholars, practitioners, and students of radio to share ideas and perspectives on radio’s cultural role in an increasingly global media context.
The Keynote speech will be given by Michael Keith from Boston College, and a contributor to The Radio Journal.

Read James Hartley's interesting article about The Trustus Plays, Jon Tuttle's exciting new playtext:
Perhaps unknown to many locals, Columbia’s Trustus Theatre hosts an internationally recognized annual Playwright’s Festival. Coming from all over the country, winners of this event have gone on to write major motion pictures, receive Tony Awards and even the Pulitzer Prize. The festival has also significantly enhanced the career of many local playwrights, including Jon Tuttle, a professor of English at Francis Marion University, whose winning works are now being published by Intellect Books through the University of Chicago Press.
