Italy and Media

The Italian section of the Department of Foreign languages at the University of Bergen, in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Institute of Culture in Norway, is pleased to announce the international Conference Italy and Media, to be held at the Faculty of Humanities on November 18—19, 2011.

Media, through different languages, play a significant role in education, information and entertainment. Such languages are creative, fascinating and influence people´s way of thinking and behaving, but can also be reiterative and banal, and have a dangerous 'seductive' power towards those people who don't possess skills enough to understand their traps.

The study of media in Italy is extremely interesting and challenging, considering also links among political power, media and communication. The 2 days long Conference aims at giving a platform to interact and discuss the role of language in the Italian mass media nowadays, involving scholars from different disciplines.

  • Italian language and media
