International Conference On Media, Culture and Ethics (February 9 – 10, 2018)

Media and popular culture percolate in all aspects of our waking time. The unrelenting exposure predominantly guides our perception of reality, the formation of our values, our beliefs and attitudes and above all it defines self and society. This has become extraordinarily powerful educating agent among majority of the population. The speed with which it is influencing the society has blinded us. Hence, it becomes imperative to have the complete and true reflection of the cultures in which the stories are set. Authenticity and ethical guidelines also need to be employed seriously to the propagation of content through different forms of media. As the professional practitioners, it is of utmost importance not only to know our content and its relevance in today's context but also be good human beings, ethically cognizant of our responsibilities for others and world at large.

Culture is the belief system of a particular group, region or nation. The way content is circulated through films or other important forms of the media can have both positive and negative impact on different segments of society. Hence, there is an urgent need to study the nuances associated with the information being distributed and shared through different forms of the media and this conference would provide a platform to discuss the challenges and the possibilities to arrive at certain conclusions regarding the present status quo.
