The articles collected in this volume encompass the outcomes of the conference «Media Convergence – Konwergencja Mediów – Medienkonvergenz», held at the Jesuit University «Ignatianum» in Cracow in March 2011. The Conference was organized by the Chair of Media and Social Communication of the Institute of Cultural Studies, founded in 2005. The aim of this interdisciplinary meeting of scholars from European academic centers was an attempt to answer the question what the phenomenon of convergence really is with regard to media, and how the permeation of media phenomena influences contemporary culture. The two-day debate included thematic blocks on literature and art, film, education, theater communication, and media communication. The interdisciplinary character of research is also the «guiding idea» of cultural studies at the Jesuit University «Ignatianum» in Cracow.
