As a leading scholar in debates about the Information Age, Professor Frank Webster is well placed to provide a polemical commentary in this webcast about the respective merits and limitations of sociological anaylsis and cultural studies as a way of understanding socio-technical change.

The discussion is largely directed by issues arising from the paper ‘Making sense of the information age: Sociology and Cultural Studies’ by Frank Webster (Information, Communication & Society, December 2005, 8:439-458).

This event is part of a series of Webcasts linked to the Information, Communication & Society (iCS) Journal.
