    Screen Industries in East-Central Europe (SIECE) Conference:

    Public Service Media’s Online Strategies: Industry Concepts And Critical Investigations

    22-23 November 2019
    National Film Archive
    Prague, Czech Republic

    The Eighth Annual Screen Industries in East-Central Europe Conference (SIECE) is providing a forum for discussing the online strategies of public service broadcasters and their possible transformations into a new kind of media services. While critical studies of television in the internet era and of online distribution of audiovisual content more generally have boomed in recent years, there has not been enough attention paid to the specific challenges and opportunities that the internet brings to public service media (PSM). This is even more the case in the small countries of Central and Eastern Europe where PSM have generally limited their online presence to catch-up services and are still looking for more complex solutions to keep up with commercial and global competition. They face enormous difficulties ranging from outdated legal frameworks and financing models, a lack of skills in digital curation or data analytics, unpredictable changes in consumer habits, the impact of social media platforms, and political attacks trying to take advantage of PSM’s insecure position. At the same time, the convergence of television and the internet presents opportunities for new business models, modes of audience engagement, and conceptualisations of public value. The SIECE VIII brings together international scholars of online TV with media professionals to draw a picture of the situation, its roots and contexts, and possible scenarios for future development within East-Central Europe and beyond.

    Keynote speakers:

    Prof. Catherine Johnson (University of Huddersfield): ‘Online TV: Television as (Public?) Service in the Internet Era’

    Dr. Thomas Poell (University of Amsterdam): ‘Platforms, Values & Public Service Media’

    ECREA Communication and Democracy Section Workshop

    Date: 5-6 December 2019
    Venue: Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, Department of Communication
    Organization: Johanna E. Möller, Jakub Nowak
    Travel: Excellent connections via central airport Frankfurt am Main, direct connections by train to Mainz (30 min.)
    Evening programme: Mainz christmas market

    Workshop theme: The politics of privacy

    The suggested workshop addresses emerging communication and media perspectives on political implications of privacy. Citizens constantly define and redefine information boundaries when acting with and on media. The way they “do privacy” is recursively related to surrounding infrastructures. Societal and technological infrastructures inform privacy practices and privacy practices transform political dimensions of social privacy order. We invite contributions on politically motivated media practices (micro and meso) as well as on political implications of privacy infrastructures and regulation (law, values, discourses and technology).
