Nov. 30 Monroe Price Lecture on "Adventures in Transnational Communications: Defining the Stake One State Has in the Media Systems of Another"

You are cordially invited to a special Yale ISP speaker series featuring Monroe Price, Professor at Cardozo School of Law and Director of the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for the University of Pennsylvania. Monroe will discuss "Adventures in Transnational Communications: Defining the Stake One State Has in the Media Systems of Another" on November 30 at 12:10 p.m. in Room 121 of Yale Law School.

About the Talk:
Substantial state (and private) efforts, both altruistic and power-oriented, seek to shift flows of information and systems that affect those flows in target societies, In this talk, Monroe will raise some issues and problems that have occurred during the course of his work in the last five years. These will include efforts to regulate transnational satellite signals, construct or shape media in conflict zones and competition to shape narratives of Internet regulation. One overall issue is the cumulative impact of these transnational efforts on conceptions of free expression.
