About the Journal
Mediální studia / Media Studies is a peer-reviewed journal based in disciplines of media and communication studies. Nonetheless, it also is open to contributions from close research fields such as cultural studies, sociology, social and cultural anthropology, gender studies, or linguistics. We publish original research papers investigating media texts or mechanisms of their production or ways of their reception.
We especially welcome papers focused upon media in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe which do not separate the region from its wider social or political ties. We endeavour to emphasise the dynamics of local-global knowledge on media and its mutual connections. Also for these reasons, we prefer texts written in English. In exceptional cases, however, we publish also manuscripts in Czech or Slovak.

Sharing (intimate) photos has become an integral part of close relationships in the age of social media. Particularly young people use social media as a way to establish and maintain strong social ties rather than a way of connecting to public life. This use pattern includes the sharing of photos and videos with intimate and sexual content such as nudes, intimate situations and other types of self-disclosure. As most public and academic interests has been related to situations where the process has gone wrong and people have been hurt, they are often associated with risk, worries and, indeed, moral disdain. Yet these cases are part of a much broader social practice, which is for the most part unproblematic and mundane. The sharing of intimate photos can be seen as part of a more general act of (mutual) self-disclosure in order to establish trust, and it can be seen as an exploration of sexuality and social identities. In both cases the sharing of intimate photos becomes part of more general processes of intimacy and close relationships that we should be careful not to reject or problematize as a whole.
Accordingly, in this themed issue we would like to move beyond the ‘stories of problem youth’ and toward a more empirically grounded and systematic analysis of the complex ways in which the sharing of intimate photos becomes part of everyday life practices including friendships, courtships, trust and intimacy – across all life phases. This may include studies of the roles intimate photos may have in the maintenance of friendships and romantic partnerships, the ways in which people negotiate trust and responsibilities in relation to this, and the specific place of risk in these interactions. It may also include more historical studies foregrounding differences and similarities to earlier practices of intimacy, friendships and sexual partnerships, and the ways gender and life phase condition and is conditioned by such practices.
It may include case studies zooming in on specific turning points where unproblematic practices turns into contested or even criminal offences. Further, articles could also focus on situations where people restrict or prevent others from using photos in an undisclosed matter. Finally it may include more political-economic analyses of the way specific social platforms condition such practices and capitalize on them, and the wider implications this may have for citizens’ rights and security in the digital network society.

Special edition of Journalism Practice
Deadline: June 18, 2019
Guest editors: Andrea Baker (Monash University), Usha M. Rodrigues, (Deakin University)
Theme rationale and scope:
Beginning in 2006, the #MeToo hashtag was created by African American civil rights advocate Tarana Burke to deal with sexual violence (sexism, misogyny, sexual harassment, assault and rape) amongst the black community in the US. In October 2017 allegation by Hollywood actor, Alyssa Milano, against prolific film director Harvey Weinstein, co-owner of US Entertainment Company (Miramax Films), led to the revitalisation of #MeToo. #MeToo sparked a movement across the US, UK, Canada, Israel, India and Australia, with more than 85 million people sharing the hashtag (Kunst, Bailey, Prendergas & Gundersen, 2018). Since then other hashtags, such as #MeNoMore; #TrustWomen; #BelieveWomen; #BeenRapedNeverReported; #YesAllWomen; #HimToo, #BlackLivesMatter, #TimesUpand #NowAustralia have emerged, each reflecting an intersectionality between sexual violence, identity politics, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, language, poverty and human rights in our daily lives (Rodino-Colocino, 2018; Menzies, Ringrose & Keller, 2018).
Research in the post #MeToo era has been tied to film studies, feminist media studies, (Rodino-Colocino, 2018; Marghitu, 2018), criminology (Mack & McCann, 2018), psychology (Jokic, 2018) or studies examining digital hashtags (Menzies et al., 2018). Post #MeToo, minimal academic research has explored how the journalism industry has reported on the sexual violence and the impact of such reportage on journalism practice and society as a whole (Mack & McCann, 2018). Historically, reports of sexual violence made the news when it was related to a known personality (for example, Weinstein) or was so extreme in nature that it was categorised as having ‘unusual’ news value (Gilchrist 2010; Rodrigues 2013; Rodino-Colocino, 2018). As Ursula Macfarlane's hard-hitting documentary /Untouchable/, which premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January 2019 notes, Weinstein often said to his victims and the press investigating the allegations: “Don’t you know who I am!?” (Cited in Debruge, 2019). However, as film critic, Peter Debruge (2019, p.1) from Variety magazine adds, “separate from the issue of Weinstein’s influence was the fact that news outlets have a legal and journalistic responsibility to get victims to go on the record before running such an incendiary story”. Reportage by US journalists, Ronan Farrow from The New Yorker, and Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey from The New York Times about abusers, have been painful, but important pieces of journalism (Cobb & Horeck, 2018). As the #MeToo hashtag went viral, the Weinstein scandal became a trial by media with the public “blaming and shaming” of more than 200 powerful men “from a range of sectors, including the film, music, literary, media, sports, fashion and the food industries...for their predatory, abusive behaviour” (Cobb & Horeck, 2018, p.1). The post Weinstein #MeToo erahasalso resulted in increased level of reporting of sexual violence cases by the mainstreamand social media. However, scholars have raised concerns that some of the media coverage for being misogynistic, sensational and insensitive. Questions remain whether journalism can help mitigate threats of sexual and physical violence trolled against women who speak up about #MeToo (Cole, 2018).
The guest editors of Journalism Practice invite rigorous empirical scholarly work related to the theme of journalism practice, sexual violence, pre or post the #MeToo era. Papers need to delineate their use of the concept of sexual violence and examine how it is reported on, or distributed by legacy or social media. Research should be based around either quantitative, qualitative, computational and/or mixed research methods. Papers are also encouraged to assess the implications or impact of such reportage, and where appropriate offer recommendations to improve journalism practice vis-à-vis reporting of sexual violence.
Possible areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

The Political Communication Section of ECREA welcomes the submission of abstracts for presentation at the next Interim Conference to be held in Poznan on 12 to 13 September 2019. Local host will be Agnieszka Stepinska from the Faculty of Political Science and Journalism at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland.
The organizers call for proposals in all sub-fields of political communication research but particularly invite conceptual, empirical, and methodological proposals on changes, shifts, and developments in political communication and their consequences. Experience of transformation in the Central and Eastern European countries as well as the current situation in other parts of Europe clearly stress the important role of communication in the fall of old borders as well as in creating new ones. Undoubtedly, communication was and still is used to overcome borders within and between countries in Europe (e.g., in the context of the peaceful revolution in East Germany and Roundtable negotiations in Poland in the past, or with regards to establishing and strengthening European integration and a European Public Sphere). The most recent digital transformation of the media has resulted in an environment where political actors, journalists, and citizens may easily and quickly disseminate messages across borders in order to achieve their goals. Undoubtedly, these new communication channels are often used to intensify communication accross borders, to solve problems and to fight for demoractic values. At the same time, however, communication is used to build new borders between (e.g., in the European debate on refugees) or within countries (e.g., when populist parties and politicians aim at mobilizing support for their goals at the expense of polarizing and dividing society). Communication clearly can cause problems when it is used to spread misinformation and hate speech or when it is used to discriminate against certain groups in society, thereby contributing to new borders.
How can the mechanisms of using political communication for building or tearing down borders be described theoretically and empirically, referring to examples from the present and the past? Which kinds of communicative tools and strategies do different political actors use to build or tear down borders? Which transnational, cross-border patterns of such forms of political communication do we find around the world? Which contextual conditions favor or hinder the use of political communication for building or tearing down borders? Which methods do we need to investigate questions like these?
The conference will feature both individual research papers and thematic panels. Paper submissions will be grouped in sessions of 4-5 papers by the conference program chair. A limited number of slots will be available for coherent panels where one topic is addressed in four to five presentations, followed by a respondent. Preference will be given to panels with presenters from diverse backgrounds and affiliations.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 25 February 2019.
Paper submissions: Please include in the email (a) the title of your paper, (b) an abstract of no more than 400 words, and (c) names and affiliations of the authors.
Panel submissions: To submit a panel proposal, a 300 words rationale should be sent alongside a 150 words explanation per presentation, as well as the names and affiliations of presenters and respondent.
Submission will undergo scholarly peer-review.
Only one proposal per first author can be accepted.
Notifications of acceptance will be issued at the earliest appropriate time.

Deliberative democracy in theory and in practice has been developing rapidly over the last decade enriching significantly the study of democratic politics. The strong philosophical foundations of deliberation (Habermas 1996; Rawls 1993) were followed by an important development of arguments and strands within deliberative democracy (eg Dryzek 1994, Gutmann and Thompson 2003). In addition to the always-challenging theoretical discussion on several procedural and conceptual aspects of deliberation, the empirical applications of deliberative democracy have equally experienced a remarkable rise (Thompson 2008) as well as in online domains. A growing number of deliberative experiments and platforms have complimented the theoretical principles of deliberative theory with ‘real politics’ initiatives in which citizens can deliberate, exchange ideas and potentially contribute to decision making. We can argue that in deliberative democracy there is often a cross fertilization between theory and practice (Cavalier, 2011: 21).
The informed, active and engaged citizen stands at the very heart of deliberative democracy re-introducing, thus, a participatory turn in democratic theory. The purpose of deliberative fora is to enhance knowledge, foster dialogue between interlocutors and reach well-reasoned and well balanced decisions. Although not all strands of deliberative democracy agree on the whole procedure feeding a well balanced decision making, deliberative procedures provide a substantive locus for public discussion and public reasoning for policies that are about to be implemented.
Deliberative democracy both in relation to its origins and its actual implementation is closely associated with legal procedures as law making constitutes the main institutional process by which policies are decided, enacted and implemented. Law making in representative democracies is reflective of the normative stance that legislatures are representatives of people and therefore law making is also illustrative of peoples’ needs and interests. However, ‘strong democracies’ (Barber 2004) require that citizens are constantly present in politics and are able to influence decisions not only during elections but on other given instances as well. Presumably, if this continuous presence of citizens in political affairs is maintained, the feeling of “trust” which is closely associated with how citizens understand and address democratic procedures will be restored in modern representative democracies. Trust is considered a basic factor and quality indicator for democracy and low levels of political trust are associated with less support for law compliance and may undermine democratic procedures (Marien and Hooghe 2011: 282).
By fulfilling and realizing this normative assumption for the importance of citizens participation in politics, real world cases have shown that citizens can have a more substantial role in law making even to the highest level of legal hierarchy which is the Constitution. In addition, a number of e-rulemaking initiatives with the most prominent of them being the US e-rulemaking initiative have developed a long term culture for a more institutional approach in public participation in relation to legislative procedures. The EU has also adopted consultation and feedback procedures throughout the law making cycle.
This one-day workshop aims to explore new trends and innovations in deliberative democracy with specific attention to deliberative procedures in legislative politics and law making. We welcome papers and contributions predominantly on the following topics but also on other relevant topics.
Please submit a short abstract of no more than 300 words to email@example.com with cc to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com by February 28th, 2019 by indicating at the topic of the email “Workshop submission PEREDEP 2019”. All submissions will be peer –reviewed by the organizing committee and external reviewers. Please indicate at your abstract if it is part of a research project. Authors will be notified of the decision for their paper proposal by 15 March 2019.
