There is a deepening symbiosis between capitalism and communication.  During the 1990s and early 2000s, convergences across mass media, telecommunications and computer technologies opened up new sectors of production and profit realisation. Subsequently, new corporations centred around the internet, social media and digital platforms have taken shape (e.g., Facebook, Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Alibaba, and Apple).
For scholars, policy makers, journalists and activists, such developments have generated concerns about regulation, cultural expression, ideological obfuscation, monitoring/privacy and communication rights. Under these circumstances the principles and practices of journalism need to be re-analysed across different settings.
With these thoughts in mind, researchers are invited to submit papers under the following themes and subthemes:
Capitalism, communication and ideology
•             Neoliberalism
•             Network society

•             Finance and communication
•             Corporations and PR

Convergence and cross media ownership
•             Media–entertainment corporations
•             Financialization and media ownership
