Description

From the cancellation of sports broadcasting to major shifts in advertising to the proliferation of memes on social media, the novel coronavirus 2019 has had a dramatic impact on the media. This panel aims to discuss the wide array in which “the media” (broadly defined) has played a key role in the spread of information related to COVID-19 with positive and negative results. Panelists will present case studies based on developing events followed by a general discussion about how global life altering events uproot daily connections among people and communities.

This panel is organized by the Media and Communication Geography Specialty Group.
