The Concordia Centre for Broadcasting Studies (CCBS) has been involved with the study of media for 30 years, as both a research centre and as an archive. It is a hub of intellectual engagement with media new and old, by sociologists, historians, literature, journalism and communications scholars.
A panel discussion on five recently published books by members of CCBS will be held Friday, March 23. The discussion focuses on writing and teaching about these themes as they transform from older too newer media, mainly, but not exclusively in the Canadian and Quebec contexts.

- François Demers, co-author of Figures du journalisme Brésil, Bretagne, France, La Réunion, Mexique, Québec (Les Presses de l’Université Laval)
