Conference Theme: Media Edu-cologies

The Global Media Education Summit (MES) brings together an international network of researchers, educators, and practitioners across all aspects of media education, media and digital literacies, youth media production and media and technology in education. As the leading global showcase for research, pedagogy, and innovation, MES explores the changing currents across media education and media literacy communities around the world

Now in its fourteenth year, MES is convened by the UK’s Centre for Excellence in Media Practice, in collaboration with a leading media education space in a different country each year. In 2023, the School of Communication and the Community Engaged Research Initiative at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada will host the event, in partnership with the McLuhan Foundation. Simon Fraser University is located on the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), q̓íc̓əy̓ (Katzie), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), Qayqayt, Kwantlen, Semiahmoo and Tsawwassen peoples.

We are pleased to announce that the Youth Media Education Summit (YMES) will return for the 2023 event and will feature young people from across the local region working in a context of youth media production with educators and media creators from partner organizations.

The 2023 MES will be an in-person conference with some integrated virtual panels* for delegates who are unable to travel to Vancouver. In addition, we will offer a special reduced rate registration fee to support participation by colleagues from locations across the Global South. More information about registration and concessions* is on the MES website (link above).

Presenters at MES will be invited to submit their research to the Journal of Media Literacy Education.
