Sylvain Lazarus is a French anthropologist and political theorist. He is a professor at the Paris 8 University. Since the 1990s, Sylvain Lazarus focus his work on the French suburbs (the banlieues). With the French anthropologist Alain Bertho, he has founded l'Observatoire international des banlieues et des périphéries (OIBP) in 2008, producing researches in France, Brazil and Senegal. Following the student uprisings of May 1968 in France, Lazarus was a founding member of the Union des communistes de France marxiste-léniniste (UCFml), in 1969. Fifteen years later, Lazarus was a founding member (along with Alain Badiou and Natacha Michel) of the militant French political organisation L'Organisation Politique which called itself a post-party organization concerned with direct intervention in a wide range of issues (including immigration, labor, and housing). In addition to numerous writings and interventions since the 1980s, L'Organisation Politique has stressed the importance of developing political prescriptions concerning undocumented migrants (les sans papiers) and stresses that they must be conceived primarily as workers and not immigrants.

Media against Democracy? - The Commercialization of Internet and the Crisis of Media

Multimedia Institute, Kurziv and Kulturtreger are organizing the conference:
Media against Democracy?
The Commercialization of Internet and the Crisis of Media

24/04 - 26/04/2014 @ Goethe Institut, Vukovarska 64, Zagreb

The media and journalism are undergoing a turbulent and painful period of restructuring. Joint forces of disruptive technological innovation and economic crisis have pulled the rug under the ailing print and broadcasting media and their production models. Journalism is being undercut by parallel processes of deskilling and lay-offs. Media reporting is increasingly becoming uniform and reduced to opinionated journalism, agency news and press releases. However, the roots of this process of economic rationalization are not of recent making. Although internet is frequently blamed for obliterating the business models of traditional media, this has only precipitated the fundamental problems of media in contemporary capitalist democracies that were set in motion in the decades before the internet with the growing concentration of media ownership and commercialization of media content.
