This event is part of McMaster’s Communication and Cultural Policy in the Age of the Platform Conference 2021. The conference will take place May 3-7, 2021 on Zoom.

The conference will draw together researchers in Canada and beyond to explore the intersections between media/communications/cultural policy and platforms. Presentations will address arts policy, broadcasting policy, communication rights, Indigenous communication and cultural policy, competition policy, cultural industries policy, heritage policy, internet policy, media policy, speech regulation, privacy, smart city regulation, and platform regulation.

This panel will be chaired by Monique Manatch (Indigenous Culture and Media Innovations; Carleton University) and will explore the following themes and questions:

• Indigenous media digital initiatives: What initiatives are happening? What policies and initiatives (can) support such initiatives?
• Indigenous data initiatives: What initiatives are happening? What policies and initiatives (can) support such initiatives?
• Indigenous broadband (digital infrastructure) initiatives: What initiatives are happening? What policies and initiatives (can) support such initiatives?
• What is an Indigenous platform? What role, if any, do non-Indigenous platforms have in supporting Indigenous media and voices?
• What role can or should regulators play?
