Media in Transition 9 at Utrecht University in the Netherlands: Transformations
In four plenary sessions international scholars William Uricchio, Jay Bolter, Jennifer Holt, Erkki Huhtamo, Henry Jenkins, Amanda Lotz, Vicki Mayer, Jussi Parikka, Lisa Parks, Roberta Pearson, and Lynn Spigel will address topics such as datafication, changing media infrastructures, public values, participatory empowerment, and niche strategies in conversation with discussants from VPRO, EYE Film Institute Netherlands, Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (Beeld en Geluid), and the European Broadcasting Union.  MiT9 recognizes the urgency to rethink existing analytical models for timely research. It aims to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between academics and practitioners and addresses the tension between the global and the local. 

Media in Transition 8: public media, private media
May 3-5, 2013
MiT8 considers the ways in which specific media challenge or reinforce certain notions of the public or the private and especially the ways in which specific “texts” dramatize or imagine the public, the private and the boundary between them.

Media in Transition 7: unstable platforms: the promise and peril of transition
May 13-15, 2011
Has the digital age confirmed and exponentially increased the cultural instability and creative destruction that are often said to define advanced capitalism? Does living in a digital age mean we may live and die in what the novelist Thomas Pynchon has called “a ceaseless spectacle of transition”? How are we coping with the instability of platforms?

Media in Transition 6: stone and papyrus, storage and transmission
April 24-26, 2009
Digital communications have increased exponentially the speed with which information circulates. We are poised to reach transmission speeds of 100 terabits per second, or something akin to transmitting the entire printed contents of the Library of Congress in under five seconds. Such developments profoundly challenge efforts to maintain access to the vast printed and audio-visual inheritance of analog culture as well as efforts to understand and preserve the immense, enlarging universe of text, image and sound available in cyberspace. What are the implications of these trends for scholars, librarians, journalists and media makers who seek to understand the place of media in our own culture?  How are shifts in distribution and circulation affecting the stories we tell, the art we produce, the social structures and policies we construct?

Media in Transition 5: creativity, ownership and collaboration in the digital age
April 27-29, 2007
The fifth Media in Transition conference aims to compare historical forms of cultural expression with contemporary media practices. What ethical issues are posed when sounds, images, and stories move from one culture or subculture to another? Or when materials created by a community or religious or ethnic tradition are appropriated by technologically powerful outsiders?

Media in Transition 3: television
May 2-4, 2003
What is the role of television in specific societies or regions today? How is this role changing? What part are digital technologies and new systems of communication playing in this transition? What are the likely outcomes of present trends? What are the darkest possibilities? What does the history of television in diverse countries and regions tell us about its possible futures? The third Media in Transition conference centers on television’s political and cultural role at the dawn of our new millennium.

Media in Transition 2: globalization and convergence
May 10-12, 2002
Will globalization reduce or expand the world’s cultural diversity? How do we reconcile the competing forces of media convergence and media fragmentation that are shaping the current communications infrastructure? What patterns can we discern among convergent content and audiences across media forms and international borders? These are among the issues to be explored at the Media in Transition 2 international conference on globalization and convergence.
