Panel: Is Every Company a Media Company?

meanwhile it has been announced that Exeter University proposes not to have a bookshop when the central campus is opened after a rebuild. See previous post

It might be very advanced not to have a bookshop. What will happen to Waterstones or WHSmith? Exeter now relies on UK chains, there is no independent bookshop. There are a lot of shops for phones and other mobile devices. There may be a research question in this

Meanwhile the agenda is published for free seminars at Online Informationat the end of November
