    Are you familiar with the topical issues of media law in Europe? Do you have the potential to contribute to extensive legal reports in areas of relevance for the audiovisual industry with a pool of experts and in three languages (English, German and French)? Do you enjoy writing, editing, and speaking in public? If so, our job advertisement may be the right opportunity for you.

    Who we are

    With over 2500 staff members coming from all its 46 member States, the Council of Europe is a multicultural Organisation. We all strive towards protecting human rights, democracy and the rule of law and our three core values - professionalism, integrity and respect - guide the way we work.

    The European Audiovisual Observatory, an enlarged Partial Agreement of the Council of Europe, was created in 1992 in order to collect and distribute information about the audiovisual industries in Europe. By making this information available, the Observatory aims at promoting greater transparency and a clearer understanding of the ways in which the audiovisual industries in Europe function, both from an economic and legal point of view.

    The Observatory provides information on the various audiovisual markets in Europe and their financing and analyses the legal issues affecting the different sectors of the audiovisual industry. It publishes reports, maintains several databases, and organises professional events. The Observatory offers the combination of a well-established system for continuous data collection assisted by a thoroughly built-up international network, 30 years of experience in analysing information, unique in- house expertise in the relevant subject matters and related methodological questions, a multi-national setting and strict commitment to offer solely neutral and objective information.

    The work of the Observatory involves collecting, checking, processing and analysing data and information from a variety of sources, for the preparation of reports or to feed its databases. Examples of projects can be found on the Observatory website.

    Berlin, Germany

    Deadline: July 7, 2024

    Global conflicts and challenges to international security are among the most pressing issues of our time. Artificial intelligence is increasingly shaping the ways in which warfare is conducted, adding both complications and urgency to the issues caused by the current major geopolitical shifts. AI is one of the driving factors of technological change in warfare in general, with its major effects mainly related to new degrees of complexity in automation and new forms of human-machine interaction. On the one hand, this change introduces new capabilities in weapons systems, in particular in the fields of processing information, generating knowledge and the automation of decision-making. Most prominently, this results in a decreasing level of human intervention and control, thereby reshaping the relationship between human operators and autonomous weapons systems. On the other hand, AI-related developments do not only concern the kinetic dimension of warfare but also expand into what military theory calls the ‘information domain’. Shaping and controlling narratives has been an integral part of conflicts and warfare for a long time, with disinformation and propaganda campaigns utilising the most recent (media) technologies for this purpose. The functionality of AI applications will increasingly be integrated in these efforts, as can already be observed with the dissemination of manipulated content on social media. AI-based technologies are also deployed in cyber warfare, which is not limited to the singular hacking of a system, but rather targeted to directly affect whole digital military infrastructures or civilian entities in politics, the economy or research.

    The objective of the conference is to explore these domains of modern warfare in order to develop a more accurate picture of the various effects of AI in military contexts. Another goal is to broaden the perspective of the military deployment of AI beyond questions of weapon systems and their control, by particularly looking at adversarial uses of AI in hybrid forms of warfare in the information domain. The conference particularly aims to develop and establish a dialogue between the research on these two domains that are often explored separately. 

    Against this background and in this spirit, we invite contributions along the following lines of inquiry:

    (1) AI in military technologies and the relationship between humans and machines

    The developments of machine learning and automated decision-making in networked and data-rich environments do not simply change weapons systems but rather have to be modelled as elements in complex systems of humans and machines. Military applications of AI, for example, pose various kinds of problems at the level of human control over these systems which can exert potentially lethal effects. They are also at the core of networked information processing (for example to select targets) and decision-making based on complex forms of synthesising data. Information superiority, situational awareness and electronic warfare are crucial issues for an understanding of the contemporary forms of military applications of AI-based weapons systems.

    Talks in this section may address historical or contemporary examples for AI-based information processing in military systems and decision making such as target selection, including various forms of cyber liabilities of military networks and infrastructures (for example communication infrastructure as well as logistics or energy supply). It may also explore current technologies based on concepts of human-machine interaction, with questions on the role of interfaces, including battlefield management systems, or human-machine teaming in the interactions between manned and unmanned systems. Relevant contributions in this section may also analyse how research and development of military technologies are informed by larger cultural narratives of AI-enabled weapons.

    (2) AI and the relationship between political processes and information warfare

    Automated and autonomous forms of information generation and processing also extend deeply into the media systems of societies, its respective militaries, civil institutions and political systems. Corresponding questions concern various forms of automated manipulation of public opinion, via bots or targeted misinformation (including deep fakes) on social media platforms. This domain particularly addresses the political decision-making processes in an information and media environment that is increasingly influenced by AI technologies. 

    Talks in this section may address topics such as the use of AI in efforts to manipulate public opinion or political processes as part of hybrid attacks or warfare in the information domain. Besides the use of generative AI in producing manipulated content, phenomena also include AI-enabled mass surveillance, as well as the targeting, profiling and tracing of individuals in exerting power or with manipulative intentions (particularly evoking emotional responses). Other issues concern the question of how these developments challenge the idea of democratic legitimacy or mechanisms of regulation and accountability (e.g. democratic control of autonomous decision-making in military contexts). 

    We welcome contributions from scholars of diverse disciplines such as computer science, cultural studies, political science, international relations & security studies, media and communication studies, military studies, psychology, sociology and science and technology studies. Interdisciplinary approaches as well as perspectives from practitioners and developers are also encouraged.

    Submission process

    Abstracts of approximately 2,500 characters in length (excl. references) should be submitted no later than 7 July, 2024 to

    Speakers will be notified at the latest by 31 July, 2024.

    CES | Alta (Coimbra, Portugal)

    Deadline: July 31, 2024

    The ‘Media and Sexual Violence’ School is an opportunity to reflect on how we understand sexual violence from its representations in different media, from different disciplinary perspectives and from the work of community-based organisations. Its specific aim is to analyse how sexual violence is mediatised in contemporary society, and, in this sense, it will discuss practical and methodological research tools, as well as the ethical dilemmas and challenges that mark cultural productions and journalistic coverage. The School is being held as part of the UnCoveR project, the first comprehensive transdisciplinary study of sexual violence in Portuguese media landscapes. The project studies sexual violence as a phenomenon framed by notions of sexual normativity, masculinity, femininity, and power dynamics, which, in contexts such as Portugal, marked by sexism, social hierarchies and colonial legacies, interact with notions of race, ethnicity, religion, and nationality.

    The five-day School includes lectures, seminars, workshops, a cultural programme, a roundtable, a training session and focus groups. The speakers and trainers will be members of the project team and consultants, as well as journalists, activists, and professionals in the field of sexual violence.

    Coordination: Júlia Garraio, Sofia José Santos, Inês Amaral, Rita Basílio Simões, Rita Alcaire

    Teaching staff: Alexandre Sousa Carvalho (CES), Ana Rita Brito (AKTO), Ângelo Fernandes (Quebrar o Silêncio), Carla Cerqueira (CICANT, Universidade Lusófona), Daniela Sofia Neto (FEUC), Francisco Azevedo Mendes (Universidade do Minho), Gary Barker (Promundo/ CES), Inês Amaral (FLUC/CES), Isabel Ventura (CEMRI), Karen Boyle (University of Strathclyde), Joana Amaral Cardoso (Público), Júlia Garraio (CES), Maria João Faustino (CES), Marta Araújo (CES), Paula Cosme Pinto, Ricardo Higuera Mellado (Men Talks), Rita Alcaire (CES), Rita Almeida Carvalho (ICS), Rita Basílio Simões (FLUC/CES), Rita Santos (CES), Sérgio Pinto (Universidade Católica Portuguesa), Sílvia Roque (Universidade de Évora, CES), Sofia José Santos (FEUC/CES), Tatiana Moura (CES).

    Target audience: researchers and students in the areas of Communication Studies, Journalism, Gender Studies, Cultural Studies and other areas that intersect with the School's themes; activists in the struggle against sexual and gender-based violence; journalists and professionals in the areas of communication; cultural producers, managers, and organisers; the general public interested in these themes.

    Roskilde University, Denmark

    Deadline: August 11, 2024

    Hosted by SatiReNet (3-year explorative research network funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark)

    Building upon the foundational works of Charb (2015), Brink (2015), Greenberg (2019), and Declercq (2021), who have explored satire as a pre-generic mode, a frame of mind, or a counterpublic practice, our explorative research network endeavours to redefine the nature of satire. We believe satire transcends mere judgment of others and instead seeks to uncover folly within ourselves. Our aim is to delve into the hybrid tensions inherent in satire, including the interplay between outward and inward critique, fiction and truth-telling, play and critique, moral restraints and license, engagement and detachment.

    Join us in a scholarly exploration of the nature of satire at this international conference! Your contributions will enrich the discourse on satire's pivotal role in challenging misconceptions, communicating complex ideas and shaping our understanding of the world.

    Themes for research:

    1. Satire and images:

    This theme examines the commonly assumed unambiguity of graphic satire, such as cartoon caricatures. Recent years have seen a surge in heated polemics surrounding this presumption, indicating a reliance on quick ethical interpretations of satirical works by both academics and non-academics (Charb, 2015; Brink, 2015; Greenberg, 2019; Phiddian, 2019). Moreover, graphic satire remains vastly understudied compared to its literary and TV counterparts (Gatrell, 2005; Brink, 2021), making this theme both urgent and promising.

    2. Satire and performance:

    In the digital age, satire has proliferated across various platforms, including social media, posing new challenges in the relationship between performance and audience. This theme explores the evolving dynamics between performance and audience participation in satirical works, with a focus on the ethical and aesthetic complexities arising from the interaction of context, theatricality, and audience interpretation (Fischer-Lichte, 2008; Reilly, 2011; Swift, 2019; Eigtved, 2021).

    3. Satire and knowledge:

    Both satire and science aim to expose falsehoods and reveal truths. This theme scrutinises the intersections of satire and knowledge, specifically how satire can be utilised to challenge scientific misconceptions and communicate complex ideas (Bore & Reid, 2014; Riesch, 2015; Pinto, Marçal, & Vaz, 2015; Klitgård, 2020; Klitgård, 2021). We aim to uncover the potential risks and benefits of this approach by examining the moral and discursive quandaries associated with using satire to negotiate the ethos of the scientist.

    Keynotes: Professor Paul Simpson, University of Liverpool, and Associate Professor Nicholas Holm, Massey University.

    Conference format:

    A two-day conference in which we aim for approximately 20 presentations in total.

    Submission guidelines:

    Abstract submissions of 300 words and a short bio of 100 words are invited from researchers, scholars and practitioners exploring the three conference themes. Please upload your material here:

    Submissions may include research papers, case studies, theoretical explorations, or interdisciplinary perspectives.

    Authors are encouraged to present innovative approaches, empirical studies, and critical analyses related to the study of satire.

    Key dates:

    Abstract submission deadline: 11 August 2024. 300 words

    Decision notice: Mid-August 2024

    Conference dates: 14-15 November 2024 (at 9-17 each day)

    Conference venue: Department of Communication and Arts, Roskilde University, Denmark,

    Signing up for the conference: 1 September 2024

    Travel and expenses:

    All participants must pay for their own travel and accommodation. 

    As Roskilde University Campus is situated in Trekroner, approximately 30 minutes by regional train from Copenhagen, it is safe to book accommodation in Copenhagen.

    There will be no registration fee, and lunch, coffee and a conference dinner will be provided for all conference attendants.

    Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Barcelona (Spain). In Person.

    Deadline: July 15, 2024

    GAME group - Universitat Oberta de Catalunya

    Our conference proposal is grounded in the work of David Morley, emphasizing the importance of paying attention to the materialities and contexts of mobile communications in relation to our everyday, always situated life: "context is no 'optional extra' which we might study at the end of the analytic process but rather, is best seen as a 'starting point' which has determining effects on both production and consumption" (2017, 2). In a recent book, Morley, along with Annette Hill, Maren Hartmann, and Magnus Andersson, introduces the concept of "mobile socialities" as a generative concept to reclaim the anthropological tradition of cultural and media reception studies and incorporate them into mobilities, reflecting on people in motion and the role of mobile media in everyday life.

    The paradigm of mobilities has opened up the field of social sciences to explore the role of movement in the constitution and functioning of institutions and social practices in recent decades (Urry, 2007): the constant flow of people, objects, money, communications, and ideas. These are physical or imaginary movements that also involve complex combinations of networks, relationships, technologies, and systems, not limited to fixed spaces.

    This mobility paradigm is defined as a non-media-centric approach and suggests moving away from solely identifying communicative processes and practices with the phenomenon of media and technologies. From this perspective, mobile communications allow experiencing everyday life as a continuum that problematizes the fragmentation of the public and private, production and reproduction, as well as the division between spaces and territories. The relational aspect is crucial and necessary to emphasize in a current climate and migration crisis: what happens in one place affects another, and people's experiences of life, their relationship with ideas, imaginaries and objects are very different, intersectional, interdependent, changing and dynamic.

    The aim of the conference is to contextualize mobilities and think about them in connection with socialities, representations, and discourses of popular culture, a central element of our contemporary societies, and the sense of belonging that these mobile communications enhance in communities, territories, cultures and traditions.

    We invite participants to explore mobilities in relation to the following general themes:

    • Socialities, Migrations, and Geographies of Mobility
    • Imaginaries and Representations of Mobility
    • Everyday Life and Mobile Communications
    • Mobilities, Belonging and Identities
    • Power and Mobility/Immobility
    • Consumption, Mobilities and Domestication
    • Media Industries, Regulation and Mobilities

    Keynotes confirmed: 

    • Dr. Annette Hill (Jönköping University)
    • Dr. David Morley (Goldsmiths University)

    We invite abstracts of 400-500 words, highlighting the paper's focus and contribution to the theme. Please, include a brief (100-word) author bio along with the abstract using these template.
