(Post)Digital Age: Media, Business, Technology, Trust

(Post)Digital Age:
Media, Business, Technology, Trust

International conference on (post)digital communications, market, and creative practices, to be held on 18 April 2019 at the Faculty of Media and Communications in Belgrade, Serbia.

(Post)Digital Age: Media, Business, Technology, Trust

In an era when the digital, as the first meta-medium, is fast becoming part and parcel of our everyday lives, virtual reality and fast communications are no longer an exception, but the norm. In that sense, the digital constitutes both a thing of the present, as well as a look into the past. Can we already speak of the challenges of the post-digital age in the opening decades of the 21st century, or is it still too early for that? Is it justified to use the prefix –post, if the digital itself is taken as a condition and pretext for a conversation about the post-digital? This conference is meant to pose these and other questions and to offer an array of possible answers in the domains of (post)digital communication, (post)digital media, (post) digital creativity, and the (post)digital market.

The conference will be held on 18 April 2019 at the Faculty of Media and Communications in Belgrade (65 Karađorđeva street). Participants will include some of the most prominent experts from Serbia and abroad, in the fields of media, communication, and new technologies.
