MEDIA CULTURE IN CHANGE
54th Annual Conference of the German Communication Association (DGPuK)
April 29th to May 1st 2009 University of Bremen, Germany
Abstract deadline: October 15th 2008
Our present cultures cannot be understood beyond the media. If one understands cultures in the widest sense of the word as the whole conflicting way of living, knowing and acting of a major group of people, then they are communicatively mediated: Through communication we become socialized within cultures, and cultural practices are to a large degree expressed in communication. These processes of communication occur increasingly via technical media, beginning with newspapers and journals, through television, radio and film up to the so-called hybrid media of computers and mobile phones. In this sense we can understand our present cultures as media cultures.
Taking this as a starting point the conference “Media Culture in Change” has a threefold objective: First aim is to discuss how to describe media cultures within media and communication studies theoretically and empirically. Secondly, the subject of the conference is to reflect how change can be described adequately and also how it can be operationalised. Third, the conference addresses the question of the significance of research on media cultures for the theoretical development of media and communication studies.
Papers on the following topic fields are welcome: • Concepts of media culture • Empirical media culture research • Historical dimension of media cultural change • Present relevance of media cultural change • Media politics, public sphere and political discourse cultures • Integration, segregation and conflicts in media cultures • Cultures of journalism, production and organisation • Contents, formats and discourses of media cultures • Everyday life, appropriation and socialisation in media cultures
NEW MEDIA AND INFORMATION: CONVERGENCES AND DIVERGENCES
6 – 9 May 2009, Athens, Greece
Deadline for abstracts: November 28th 2008
The conference objective is to address questions related to digital communication and its significance in the public domain, as they are both being shaped by states and politics, technologies, business activity, publishing initiatives and communities of citizens who utilize the Internet and mobile means of communication. It will explore the relationships among new media and modes of information, the conflict and convergence with traditional forms of information and the socio-economic consequences of these processes.
Lund, Sweden, June 25-28, 2009
In cooperation with Film Studies / Centre for Languages and Literature, Lund University
Deadline for abstracts: January 31, 2009
Founded in February of 2006, NECS, the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies brings together scholars and researchers in the field of cinema, film and media studies with archivists and film and media professionals. A first NECS workshop was held in Berlin on the occasion of the network’s founding in 2006, followed by the first two annual international conferences in Vienna 2007 and Budapest 2008. Over the last two years, over 450 members have joined NECS worldwide. In 2009 the NECS conference, “Locating Media”, will take place in Lund, Sweden, over the 25-28 June. Lund is situated close to one of Sweden’s production hubs on the Swedish side of the Öresund region. This particular geographical location makes Lund a perfect place to explore broader issues of space, place and locale in relation to cinema and media studies in general, and cultural and creative industries in particular.
We invite papers exploring the following range of issues: Locating Practices: Regional, local, national and global media practices through history; --Locating Media Production: Political, economic, social and cultural impact of located / relocated film and TV productions; --Locating Movements: Migrating media, migrating audiences, diasporic filmmakers; --Locating Technologies: Mobile media and the medialization of space (from surveillance to YouTube); Locating Aesthetics: Styles of place/places of style in various media texts; --Locating Research: Methodological nuances, theoretical consequences and political implications for scholarly practices within future film- and media studies.
Please note that you may hand in a paper or panel proposal related to the thematic guidelines of the conference outlined above, or alternatively submit a paper or panel proposal for the open call in any field of cinema and media studies. For this year’s conference we especially encourage pre-constituted panels.
The Future of Journalism
9th and 10th September 2009
Cardiff School of Journalism, UK
Deadline for abstracts: 9 January 2009
The second Journalism Practice and Journalism Studies conference to be hosted by the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies and supported by Routledge, Taylor and Francis, will focus on the topic: The Future of Journalism. The environments in which journalists work - across the various media platforms of print, radio, television and online - are changing rapidly in response to innovations in technology, increasingly competitive and fragmenting markets for readers and audiences, government media policy and changing audience requirements for news and the ways in which it is presented and delivered. These changes are impacting on journalists' employment, their perceptions of their professional roles, their professional values and their day-to-day journalism practice. A growing army of citizen journalists now deliver copy for all media platforms, while new media technologies, the changing structures of the global news industries, combined with more competitive markets for advertising revenues are changing radically the ways in which journalism organisations and media businesses function. In these fast-moving times, journalism faces huge challenges and opportunities, although these are shaped, given additional impetus and direction, or slowed down by the distinctive journalism cultures and markets which prevail in different regions of the world.
Proposals for Papers are invited on the following broad themes: " The Future of Journalism: Perspectives from different countries/continents); " The Future of Journalism: New media technologies, blogs, citizen journalism and UGC; " The Future of Journalism: Business trends and developments; " The Future of Journalism: Implications and developments for journalism practice; " The Future of Journalism; Broadcast and print journalism; " The Future of Journalism; the employment, education and training of journalists; " The Future of Journalism; Journalism ethics.
Titles and abstracts for papers (250 words max) and proposals for panels of related papers, should be emailed (by 9 January 2009) to Bob Franklin at email@example.com
