    July 7, 2019, 9:00am-4:30pm

    Madrid, Spain

    (Extended) Proposal deadline: May 10, 2019 (11:59 pm MST)

    The Program:

    Reimagining Our University aims to cultivate solidarity and collaboration by bringing emerging scholars together to discuss our concerns with the contemporary university and brainstorm solutions to some of these questions. We are the future of the university, and we can either choose to accept the university as it stands, prioritizing our personal success within market-driven structures, or we can choose to develop transnational networks of emerging scholars committed to supporting one another as we develop and cultivate visions of what the university might become.

    The preconference will be divided into two parts: (1) three conference-style roundtables in which individuals share ten-minute provocations, followed by open discussion; and (2) carefully designed workshops aimed at targeted brainstorming and goal-setting in response to previously identified key areas of concern.

    The Vision:

    At the upcoming 2019 IAMCR Conference, we will be gathering to engage the role of communication in fulfilling the Preamble of the Paris Declaration (UN, 1948), which states that "recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world".

    This commitment must begin within our own institutions. However, contemporary universities are undergoing a process of the so-called “neoliberalization”, in which students are called “customers” or “users”, and faculty and graduate students are reduced to labor force or “service providers”. In this context, the contemporary University’s commitments to financial viability often undermine and prevail upon the collective attempts of faculty, staff, and students to cultivate a community of knowledge.

    It can be tempting to call for a return towards the origins of the university, for a restoration of its initial commitment to the Humanities and the development of thoughtful citizens. However, even if the university was not always as commercially driven, the university has never been committed fully to the dignity and rights of all members of the human family. It has always been exclusionary in some form, and the university participated actively in the European colonial project.

    Instead it is necessary to begin with a blank slate and imagine the modern university from the ground up, as we need it to be. What purpose should the university have in today’s society? For whom should the university be designed? How should coursework be structured? How should the tenure process function? Can we design financially stable institutions without structuring such institutions around financial viability and market interests? These are massive questions with which we must wrestle, and we must wrestle with them together.

    Call for Proposals:

    Faculty and graduate students at all levels are encouraged to apply. Though this preconference is sponsored by the Emerging Scholars Network and emphasizes the collaboration and contributions of emerging scholars, we value the insights and perspectives of experienced academics who also wish to reimagine the university as it exists today.

    For the first session, we request interested participants to submit an author bio and a 300-word abstract outlining their brief ten-minute provocations that offer insights, challenges, calls to action, or other reflections in response to the central question of this preconference: how must we rethink and reimagine the university today?

    For the second session, we request interested workshop organizers to submit a CV and one-page proposal outlining their idea for a workshop related to the theme of this preconference.

    Potential topics for provocations or workshops could include:

    • Decolonizing the university
    • Rethinking the publishing model
    • Public scholarship and the university
    • The future of finances within the Academy
    • The tenure-track process
    • University infrastructures
    • The university’s responsibility to the environment

    As this pre-conference will function as a workshop, involving the active participation of all conference attendees, all in attendance may request a letter to their home institution, in which we advocate for their merit to receive travel funding, regardless of whether they are one of the speakers presenting a provocation.

    Please send all proposals and queries to Rachel Lara van der Merwe (University of Colorado Boulder) at rachel.vandermerwe@colorado.edu no later than May 10, 2019 (midnight MST).

    Organisers:

    The Emerging Scholars Network is the key organizer and sponsor of this event. ESN (http://iamcr.org/s-wg/section/emerging-scholars-network-section/home) is a section dedicated to the work and careers of emerging scholars in the field of media studies and communication.

    The ESN organizes emerging scholar panels and joint panels with other sections. Emerging Scholars panels provide a comfortable environment for the presentation of theses and works in progress, where emerging scholars can receive feedback from colleagues also at the beginning of their careers and from senior scholars who act as respondents to individual papers.

    January 7-11, 2020

    Lisbon

    Deadline: July 22, 2019

    Jointly organized by the Faculty of Human Sciences (Universidade Católica Portuguesa), the Center for Media@Risk at the Annenberg School for Communication (University of Pennsylvania), the School of Journalism and Communication (Chinese University of Hong Kong), the Department of Media and Communications (London School of Economics and Political Science) and the Faculty of Social Sciences (University of Helsinki), the Second Lisbon Winter School for the Study of Communication will take a comparative and global approach to the study of media and uncertainty across time.

    Call for Applications

    The media today are troubled by uncertainty. Externally, a growing sense of uncertainty draws from deep-seated questions about identity formation, increasing angst over the viability of familiar cultural, political and social formations and intensifying social and economic precarity and inequality. Ultimately, the risks and challenges posed by climate change expose an even deeper sense of risk, calling into question the usual cyclical social imaginations about risk, crisis and renewal.

    Within media environments, uncertainty builds from the rapid unfolding and often unforeseen ramifications of digital technology, the collapse of traditional business models, new degrees of irrelevance, the emergence of new players and platforms, the development of new reception practices, changing expectations of what media are for and a shift in the very relationship of the media to the outside world in an era marked by widespread dis- and mis-information. The viability of media as we know them is up for grabs.

    How and in what ways will the media – as institutions, as occupational and professional contexts, as a diverse set of practices – adapt to this age of uncertainty? Will the media continue to produce meaningful content, and if so in which ways? How will the media push back against political assault? Who will fund the media’s continued presence? Will new business models allow the media to play a central role in democratic societies, producing investigative journalism and relevant information on current affairs? How do we move forward in rebuilding public trust in the media, ensuring that they help sustain some kind of inclusive public space? How will audiences relate to and engage with different media platforms? How will new forms of media change and disrupt legacy media platforms? How will journalism report about uncertain and risky futures? How will political powers be held accountable?

    Questions like these fuel the imaginary that uncertainty introduces into considerations of the media, demanding global approaches to the different occupational, professional, economic, political, cultural and environmental contexts in which the media operate. Thus, the Second Lisbon Winter School for the Study of Communication will consider how uncertainty is molding the media in different geographies and how societies rely on the media to deal with moments of uncertainty.

    The Lisbon Winter School invites proposals by doctoral students and early career post-docs from all over the world that address, though may not be not be strictly limited to, the topic of media and uncertainty as it relates to:

    • Media and digital transformation
    • Emergent cultural, political and social formations
    • New business models
    • New notions of risk and resistance to it
    • Media and uncertainty throughout history
    • Online harassment
    • Alternative media forms and outlets
    • Media activism
    • Reporting uncertainty
    • Authoritarian media
    • Media and political accountability
    • Dis- and misinformation, fake news and hate speech
    • Environmental precarity

    PAPER PROPOSALS

    Proposals should be sent to lisbonwinterschool@gmail.com no later than July 22, 2019 and include a paper title, extended abstract in English (700 words), name, e-mail address, institutional affiliation and a brief bio (max. 100 words) mentioning ongoing research.

    Deadline: July 19, 2019

    Despite the wide variety of events studied or addressed by event scholars and event managers, very few consider death from a perspective of event studies or event management. Yet, it is the one event that none of us can evade. How death is articulated through the events around it, how the end of life is marked (whether that be the life of an individual, a group, or a community) through evental structures in diverse cultural, ideological, societal frameworks, is a vastly under-explored domain. From the practicalities around a highly stage-managed event of commemoration or memorialisation, in the details of state funeral or day of remembrance, to the sudden outpourings of grief and unstructured informal societal responses to some events of death around well-known figures, the loss of someone personally close to us or our responses shed light on culturally normative modes of expression, hegemonic power, or an ideological context within which the death occurs and the living act and interact.

    Following on from a positive discussion with one of the editorial board of the Emerald Studies in Death and Culture book series we are looking for chapters that would contribute to a proposed book on death, remembrance, memorialisation and the evental. We seek contributors from any discipline and field who are interested in reflecting on death from the perspective of event, event studies, and events management. The work can be conceptual, empirical, practical or provocative. Whether you are a practitioner or your area of expertise is anthropology, critical event studies, cultural studies, philosophy, psychology, sociology, theology or otherwise, so long as your interest is in the manifestation, mediation and articulation of death from an events perspective, we would love to hear from you. There are no restrictions around conceptual framework, or on the research philosophy/research approach, your work adopts.

    Chapters may cover, but not be limited to:

    • Celebrating, commemorating and memorialising death through events
    • Funerals and memorial services
    • Funeral directors as event manager and co-creators of funeral events
    • National or international commemorations of death
    • Deaths of celebrities, royalty, religious or political leaders or iconic figures
    • Formal state responses to death
    • Media influences on death
    • Commercialization of death
    • Cultural significance of death memorials
    • Vigils and responses to terror attacks
    • Faith and non-faith perspectives
    • Informal spontaneous evental responses to death
    • Cultural appropriation of death events
    • Teaching about events of death
    • Conspicuous consumption and death
    • Sustainability and woodland burials
    • Visual media, social media and memorabilia, live streaming of death events
    • (Auto)Ethnographic stories of death events
    • Memorialisation as activist event
    • Theological perspectives on death events
    • A contemporary conceptualization of the funeral as event
    • Rituals of death events
    • Death events as liminal spaces

    In the first instance please send us an abstract of 300 words (excluding any references), together with your full name, any affiliation, and lead author contact information until 19th July 2019. Our objective is to submit a formal book proposal by the end of July 2019.

    Ghent (Belgium)

    Deadline: May 12, 2019

    Keynote speakers:

    Catherine Grant (Birkbeck, University of London)

    Barbara Flueckiger (Zurich University)

    The academic study of film has involved looking at generic conventions, authorial features, and the use and function of different aspects of film language, including mise-en-scène, narrative, editing and sound. Film Studies has also examined the relationship between film and society, by contemplating issues such as race and gender, the on- and off-screen construction of stardom, the association between cinema, ideology and propaganda, and the way in which films mirror and shape national and transnational identities. The industrial features of film, film policy and legislation, as well as matters of film reception, distribution and exhibition, venues and audiences (cf. the New Cinema History Movement) have also been extensively considered by scholars, within and beyond the discipline.

    Research questions and methodologies from the humanities and social sciences have often been used in conjunction in the analysis of this multitude of topics. The history of Film Studies is thus one of transdisciplinarity. As the discipline moves forward, and its future is called into question – both in relation to debates about the post-cinematic era (Denson and Leyda 2016) and the changing academic context (Fairfax 2017) – methodological considerations have been given greater attention in academic discussions. This is at least partly connected to the rise of the Digital Humanities, which has afforded the study of film with a variety of new digital sources, tools and methods, as well as a growing interest in quantitative data, which allows for new forms of analysis of film texts, industries, audiences and cultures. At the same time, more traditional methods, such as the multiple approaches to textual analysis, the use of interviews and surveys, as well as archival research, retain their important place within Film Studies. The wide variety of methodologies adopted by researchers of film across the globe have meant the discipline is now faced with a series of challenges and opportunities.

    Aiming to explore a wide range of approaches, this conference invites contributions that engage with current methodological challenges and opportunities in Film Studies. We welcome theoretical contributions on methodological issues in Film Studies, papers or workshop sessions on specific methods, as well as research papers paying considerable attention to the methodological framework at stake.

    Abstracts are invited on topics related to research methods in Film Studies, including but not limited to:

    • Statistical methods for textual analysis
    • Film Studies and big data
    • Text mining in Film Studies
    • CAQDAS and Film Studies
    • Cinema and social network analysis
    • Audience research
    • Methods in New Cinema History
    • Production analysis and film policy research
    • Film and video as methodological tools
    • Narrative analysis
    • Archival research
    • Methodological issues in specific schools of film analysis (e.g. feminism, phenomenology, neoformalism, auteurism, post-structuralism, critical theory, cultural studies, political economy …)
    • Neurocinematics and neuroscience of film

    The conference will also host a special panel organized by the ECREA Television Studies section. The section invites paper proposals devoted to new methodologies in the research of television fiction and non-fiction content. The section welcomes submissions that explore comparisons, international approaches and examples of concrete and innovative case studies, in order to shed light on the future of TV Studies in the new digital context.

    Please submit your abstract (max 300 words) along with key references, institutional affiliation and a short bio (max 150 words) or a panel proposal, including a panel presentation (max 300 words) along with minimum 3, maximum 4 individual abstracts.

    Submission deadline: 12 May 2019.

    Proposal acceptance notification: 21 June 2019.

    Please send your abstract/panel proposals to the conference email address: filmstudiesecrea@gmail.com

    ECREA membership is not required to participate in the conference. The conference fee will not exceed 70 EUR and will include coffee breaks, lunches and receptions.

    The conference takes place in Ghent and is hosted by Ghent University and the University of Antwerp. The conference is organised by the ECREA Film Studies Section in co-operation with DICIS (Digital Cinema Studies network), the Research Center for Visual Poetics at the University of Antwerp, the Centre for Cinema and Media Studies at Ghent University, the Visual and Digital Cultures Research Center at the University of Antwerp, and the Popular Communication division of NeFCA.

    University of Milan

    Deadline: May 17, 2019, 12:00 PM

    The SOMET (Sociology and Methodology of Social Research) PhD, jointly run by the University of Milan and the University of Turin, is now accepting applications for the 35th cycle of studies, starting in September 2019.

    Applicants will be admitted ONLY with a scholarship. There are 6 scholarships available for the upcoming cycle. SOMET is one of the leading sociological PhD Programmes in Italy.

    Entirely held in English, its courses, seminars and research activites are organised jointly by the University of Milan and the University of Turin. Its Faculty also includes sociologists from other Italian and international universities.

    The Ph.D. programme in Sociology has a longstanding tradition of excellence in Italy. It was one of the first to be established after the 1980 university reform and has provided a large number of outstanding academic sociologists who have gone on to make significant contributions to teaching and research in Italy and abroad.

    The aim of the programme is to provide structured and advanced training in theoretically-guided empirical research across a wide range of sociological fields and to introduce students to current international issues in both qualitative and quantitative social research.

    The course consists of a three-year programme made of 60 credits per year. The first year is devoted to basic training, in conjunction with the activities of the Faculty's interdisciplinary Graduate School in Social and Political Sciences. The second year is partly spent in a relevant university department abroad and is devoted to the initial drafting of the thesis. The third year is entirely spent completing the thesis.

    Graduates will be able to compete successfully for positions as researchers (in public and private universities and research centers), skilled professionals and consultants in sociology to public agencies and international organizations and institutions in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. Several of our recent graduates have obtained positions in important international universities (University of Amsterdam, King's College London, University of Essex, EmLyon Business schoool, Middlesex University).

    Since 2014-2015, the PhD programme in Sociology and Methodology of Social Research (SOMET) has being offering PhD positions for joint degrees with two LERU partner universities – *University of Amsterdam* and *Lund University*. From 2019-2020 a new partnership will be activated with *Vrije Universiteit Brussel*.

    Glasgow School for Bussiness and Society

    Applications are invited for a full-time, competition-funded PhD research studentship at Glasgow Caledonian University within the Glasgow School for Business and Society, division of Media and Journalism.

    Project description:

    This PhD project arises out of discussions concerning the limited range of representations of serious illness in film and TV narratives. For example, stroke, despite being a leading cause of disability in the Western world, has almost no presence in contemporary screen narratives.

    The situation is even worse with media depictions of obstetric and gynaecological issues; mainly because of the socio-cultural resistance to showing the female body as being less than ‘perfect’.

    The aim of this project is to map existing narrative representations of illnesses on screen such as stroke, cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and gynaecological/urogynecological conditions as well as to develop a series of recommendations, via research involving consultation with health professionals, for improving future narrative representations of serious illness on screen. Representative texts to be analysed may include the following: films Philadelphia (1993) and the recent Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) for depictions of AIDS; BBC TV series Bodies (wr.: Jed Mercurio, 2004-6) for gynaecological issues; works of screenwriter Dennis Potter for psychological explorations of serious illness (psoriatic arthropathy: The Singing Detective, BBC TV 1986; cancer: Karaoke and Cold Lazarus, BBC TV and Channel 4, 1996); the single TV drama Care (BBC TV, 2018) for stroke. Frederike Van Wijck, Professor of Neurological Rehabilitation within the School of Health and Life Sciences at GCU, will act as a consultant on the project.

    The project directly relates to the following aspects of GCU’s research strategy: (i) Inclusive Societies and (ii) Healthy Lives and in particular to the theme of ‘Social Justice, Equalities and Communities’ focusing on inclusiveness, identity and cultural citizenship with reference to socio-cultural analysis of media practice and the enhancement of the evidence base for future initiatives and interventions in this field; as well as to public health, in terms of the management of long-term conditions.
