Lisbon, Portugal

Deadline: February 2, 2024

Research on journalism extends across a range of subjects from historical to contemporary, from print to online, and across different regions of the world, addressing a myriad of challenges. This symposium aims to bring together researchers, academics, professional journalists, and media organizations and, at the same time, explore how this field of study can be applicable in the everyday lives of journalists.

Researchers in journalism studies at the Research Centre for Communication and Culture (CECC) at the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Lisbon therefore invite submissions of extended abstracts for a symposium on “Journalism Studies, Past and Present” to be held on April 16, 2024 at the Faculty of Human Sciences, Universidade Católica Portuguesa. 

The Symposium is open to researchers who wish to present their current research on subjects such as journalism as an agent of memory, its role as a producer of historical documents, and the challenges of contemporary communication, such as disinformation, media literacy, and others.

Extended abstracts (up to 750 words, not including references) should be sent to by February 2, 2024. Applicants will be notified of decisions by February 23, 2024.

Submitted abstracts can address a number of topics within journalism studies, including, but not limited to:

- Journalism as an agent of memory
