7-9 November: '60 Years of Wonders' conference

The Conference, co-organised by the Pontifical Universities Santa Croce, Lateran and Salesian, will be held in Rome from 7 to 9 November 2023 (15.30-18.30)

4 December 2023 will mark the 60th anniversary of the promulgation of Inter Mirifica, the Decree of the Second Vatican Council on the instruments of social communication. The document inaugurates the modern and systematic reflection of the universal Church on communication.

The conference intends to articulate analysis and reflection along two lines: the historical or historiographical one, highlighting how the document fits right into the so-called media studies. And at the same time, to emphasise the relevance of the document in the light of media and technological evolution up to the current digital context.

The addressees are the academic community, students and teachers of social, cultural and communicative processes, professionals, communicators and all those who have a particular interest in the scientific study of the church-media-society link.
