“When speakers came together in Lisbon in January 2020, they spoke of various themes—economic logics, communication practices, media activism, political accountability, environmental precarity—and also acknowledged what they did not know.

We are pleased to announce that at long last the “Media and Uncertainty” E-Book is available as a free digital download.
