Abstract:One of the highlights of my year in Dublin was to attend the conference on Youth, Media and Democracy on 18-19 April, 2008 at Dublin Institute of Technology and the Digital Hub. The conference explored the ways that new media and information & communication technologies (ICTs) affect the activities, roles, and relationships of youth, through topics such as new media, emerging literacies, digital divide, representations of youth in media, and new media as a platform for democracy in the lives of young people. It also examined how youth can express themselves through new media and showcased youth-created media. This article contains my reflections on the event.
