    2020 Nordic Working Life Conference

    June 10-12, 2020

    Faculty of Social Sciences, Aaalborg University, Denmark

    Deadline: October 1, 2019

    The journalistic profession and journalists' labour have undergone significant changes in the past three decades. These are linked to technological developments as well as broader socio-political and economic changes. Apart from the most widely studied influences – the impact of new technologies and economic pressures – the past thirty years also involved the transformation of the journalistic profession and labour as a result of the fall of communism in East Central Europe, the re-unification of Germany or the break-up of Yugoslavia. Studies on the working lives of journalists continue to be scarce. We reviewed all the volumes of three key academic journals devoted to the study of journalism, namely Journalism Studies, Digital Journalism and Journalism Practice and found a limited number of studies that deal with journalists' working lives and these tend to focus on the impact of technological change and economic pressures. The studies also tend to focus on the US and UK, with occasional research on Nordic countries.

    In order to address the lack in research, we solicit abstracts for papers as part of a thematic session that will address three key areas:

    1. What insights and developments has research on journalists' labour, working lives and conditions of work uncovered in the past three decades?

    2. What gaps can we identify in such research?

    3. What new avenues – including theoretical and methodological approaches – are required for future research?

    Deadline for abstract submission: 1 October 2019

    Abstract submission via the conference site:

    The speedy developments in online media, satellite TV and social media platforms have brought up significant ethical challenges around the world.

Media coverage of crises, war and conflicts is a case in point.

    • Privacy and protection in the Big Data environment

    • Can the aim justify the means? Investigative journalism and the public interest
    • Online media and the ethical challenge to journalism values
    • Clash of values: study in the cartoon controversy

    The 26th Nordic Intercultural Communication (NIC) Conference

    November 28 - 30, 2019

    Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences, Valmiera, Latvia

    Deadline: October 7, 2019 [1]

    Along with the extension of submission deadline till October 7, the NIC 2019 Organizing team has an honour to announce the conference's first key-note speaker Prof. Dr. Dominic Busch -- a Professor of Intercultural Communication and Conflict Research at Bundeswehr University Munich, Germany. The title of his keynote at the NIC 2019 will be "Intercultural Sustainability: In Search for Ethical Foundations in Intercultural Communication Research."

    In his studies, Dominic Busch explores how ethical orientations of society are reflected in the academic research of intercultural communication. Following a discourse approach, notions of intercultural communication in research and practice is seen as discursive constructions. Building on these insights, Dominic Busch argues for a stronger reflection of differing ethical orientations, which influence intercultural research. More information about his work can be obtained from [2].

    The 26th Nordic Intercultural Communication conference will be held in Valmiera - a more than 700 years old Hanseatic town located about 100km North-East of the capital Rīga. The conference language is English. This time the overarching theme of the conference is centred on exploring cultural diversity and intercultural sustainability. The conference predominantly but not exclusively addresses the intercultural communication challenges and opportunities as illuminated, for instance, by international migration and diversity. Unfortunate by-products of these processes often are anger, fear, and societal division. The conference seeks to foreground the understanding of ways in which communities could be both diverse and integrated. The specific emphasis is on the notion of joint living in instead of merely with diversity in a variety of realms, including the practices of everyday interaction, education, policymaking, language and communication training, media, and so forth. Contributions from seasoned scholars as well as from students and practitioners interested in the various aspects of culture and communication are encouraged.

    The potential forms of participation include individual presentations of either fully developed papers or work in progress, as well as panels and workshops. The participants are encouraged to submit their conference papers to the Journal of Intercultural Communication. This peer-reviewed publication is an outgrowth of the activities of the NIC: [3].

    This call for papers is addressed to scholars and practitioners focusing on but not limited to the following themes:

    • Culture, communication and civic participation
    • Building trust in societies
    • Methods and practices of communicating, cultivating, and negotiating cultural diversity
    • Cultural diversity in relation to education and pedagogy, training and management
    • Intercultural aspects of migration and diasporic life
    • Language training and cultural diversity
    • Personal relationships across culturally diverse contexts
    • Media, cultural diversity, and sustainable communities
    • Social policy responses to the turbulence of the modern world - values, action, and communication

    During the conference, the 3rd ESPAnet Baltics annual meeting will take place. More about the organization itself can be found at[4].

    Individual paper proposals should follow the abstract format of approximately 500 words (including the title and reference information).

    Panel proposals should also be approximately 500 words, including rationale, a list of proposed participants as well as their individual contribution.

    The submission system is available at [5].

    Submission deadline is extended till October 7, 2019. We look forward to seeing you in Valmiera!

    The 26th NIC conference is organized by the Faculty of Society and Science at the Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with Valmiera City Municipality and the Latvian Platform for Development Cooperation (LAPAS). For further inquiry, you are welcome to contact the chair of the organizing committee Liene Ločmele at liene.locmele[at]

    A special issue of Medijske studije / Media Studies Journal to be published in January 2020, MS Vol. 10 (2019) 20

    Deadline: October 7, 2019

    Edited by Maria José Brites (Lusófona University of Porto), Inês Amaral (University of Coimbra), Antonija Čuvalo (University of Zagreb)

    Media generational identities are culturally, socially, economically and historically shaped. A single vision of generational identity is impossible.

    This special issue welcomes different approaches to intergenerational and generational perspectives from various geographical landscapes. Moreover, it aims to discuss digital uses and digital competences within intergenerational and generational perspectives. The proposal is to assume as context the current digital media environment, which has shaped media history over the past decades. Non-Western voices covering generations, digital uses and competences are particularly welcome.

    Historically, media were mostly considered as reinforcements of the generational gap, mostly in the family context. Though research by Livingstone and Haddon (2009) found that the intergenerational gap is diminishing in time, according to Bolin & Skogerbø (2013), the digital era is contributing to straight the generations. Čuvalo (2017) discerns shared media repertoires among the youngest, so-called digital generation or digital natives and the older generation of digital immigrants (Thomas, 2011). In this sense, there is the need to work closely on life course perspectives as a possible explanation of the diminishing or perpetuating of the generational gap (Amaral & Daniel, 2018). The context of digital literacy reinforced activities by civil society and schools and can bring some light to the discussion of this need (Brites, 2017). Furthermore, a generational perspective in scholar and familiar environments can empower the discussion.

    There is a story to tell and gains to conquer from the historical reflection, although the real interconnection between the digital devices and the audiences is a recent issue. Research can benefit from a systematization from the past to the future and also in the current present.

    All manuscripts should be submitted through the Open Journal System:

    Submission guidelines can be found here:

    The deadline for full articles is 7 October 2019.
