University of Tuscia-Viterbo-Italy (Face-to-face and online participation)

Deadline: September 20, 2022

A new edition of GENDERCOM, an international conference on Gender and Communication, traditionally organised by the University of Seville, will be held in October 2022.

GENDERCOM is a biennial conference dedicated to the critical analysis of the construction of gender identities in society and the media. It is an opportunity for scholars dealing with the complex and multifaceted field of gender and media studies to meet and exchange ideas, aimed at highlighting original research paths in terms of themes, method, study approaches or socio-cultural perspectives.

In addition to being highly topical, the topics at the centre of the conference are significant for several reasons. Firstly, the complex and changing nature of products, technologies and actors in the media system, the socio-political implications of media narratives, especially in relation to persistent gender inequalities. The accumulation and juxtaposition of contents, formats, products and consumption practices describe a scenario in which conventional practices and contents coexist with innovative practices and products.

Thus, the focus of the conference is on the coexistence, in the media, of cultural resistance, forms of discrimination, stereotypes and manifestations of violence linked to gender identities or sexual orientations together with the emergence of new sensitivities conveyed by the media that promote and disseminate ideas, images and narratives that are more articulate and respectful of diversity

The eighth edition of the event, organised by the University of Tuscia, the Sapienza, University of Rome, and the University of Seville, will be held on 12 (online), 13 and 14 October (face-to-face participation) at the University of Tuscia in Viterbo, about an hour away from Rome.

The conference languages will be English, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian.

The abstract must not exceed 1,000 words and must be submitted via form by September 20, 2022. We accept proposal in all the languages provided by the Conference.

The conference fee is € 120,00 + € 40 for any other co-authors

For UNITUS speakers, the conference fee is 100% funded
