    October 16-17, 2019

    Edinburgh University, UK

    Deadline: April 30, 2019

    In the early 1980s, the establishment of Catalan, Basque and Welsh TV channels motivated several European scholars to investigate key concepts concerning minority language media and undertake important case studies. In 1992, the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages emphasised that public authorities have important responsibilities in this field. In the last two decades, the introduction of digitalisation and the Internet have developed a global world where the impacts, challenges and opportunities for minority language media have become increasingly complex. Despite these transformations, there has been little focused discussion and debate on the relationship between the digital and minority-language media.

    This international conference is co-organised by the Basque Institute Etxepare and the University of Edinburgh and aims to exchange knowledge as well as promote collaboration between academics and professionals working on minority-language media.

    We invite individual papers, pre-constituted panels or posters that engage with research and case studies on any of the following topics:

    1. Communication and cultural policies

    2. Media economics and the digital age

    3. TV channels and online video platforms

    4. Audience, genres and content analysis

    5. Programming strategies and content commissioning

    6. Production conditions and distribution opportunities

    7. Commercialisation of programmes

    8. Media education and language use

    9. Nation, language and identity

    10. Media and gender perspectives

    Confirmed plenary speakers:

    • Rob Dunbar, University of Edinburgh
    • Josu Amezaga, University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU)
    • Elin Haf Gruffydd Jones, Mercator Media
    • Alan Esslemont, TG4 Irish TV General Director
    • Itziar Azpeitia Iruretagoiena, Head of special projects - Basque Public TV (ETB)

    Democratic Communiqué, a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to investigating mass media, information, and telecommunication phenomena and issues from critical political economy and policy studies perspectives, invites original, scholarly articles for publication in its Winter 2020 issue (Vol. 29, No.1).

    The Communiqué publishes articles exploring any of a wide range of topics, including alternative/community/public media, the internationalization of capital and information flows, media and imperialism, telecommunication industry ownership and consolidation, information society, information technology and surveillance, feminist political economy, environmental political economy, media’s relatedness to social class, labor or social movements, and analyses of cultural artifacts or practices which encompass ideational and material concerns. While these topics encompass a vast swath of academic inquiry and scholarship, they are united in their critical examination of media and communication as they relate to political economy, individual and societal involvement in these economic systems, and the policies that shape them.

    The journal is indexed by Scopus, EBSCO, Google Scholar and the Directory of Open Access Journals, and publishes in both the Notes and Bibliography and Author-Date citation systems presented by TheChicago Manual of Style (15th ed.).

    Manuscripts should be double-spaced throughout with a detachable title page containing the full contact information of the author(s). Submissions undergo double-blind peer review, and should not exceed 8,000 words.

    Please email article submissions to the Communiqué’s editor, Dr. Jeffrey Layne Blevins (Head, Department of Journalism at the University of Cincinnati) at Jeffrey.Blevins@UC.edu.

    The Commentary and Criticism, Feminist Media Studies

    Deadline: April 26, 2019

    The broad expansion of the post-feminist media landscape of the past couple of decades brought about an increased visibility of spectacularised and idealised ideas of pregnancy – a romanticised “new momism” (Douglas and Michaels, 2004). Alongside these romanticised discourses, though, exist numerous examples of mediated pregnancies that sit outside of such glamorised and perfect representations of pregnancy. This context has also opened up new networked spaces for people to seek and offer support online in relation to pregnancy, as well as spaces to search for or share (self-)representations of pregnancy. The editors of Commentary and Criticism invite short essays that critically consider pregnancy and contemporary media. Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:

    • Media representations of pregnancy
    • Pregnancy in the media industries
    • Online users and communities’ uses of digital media related to pregnancy
    • Celebrity pregnancies
    • Mediated pregnancy in relation to diverse intersectionalities including: LGBTQ+, age, race, class, ability
    • Audiences’ consumption of mediated pregnancy
    • Pregnancy in the context of health communication or health policy in the media
    • Onscreen pregnancy and genre
    • Neoliberalism, pregnancy and media

    The Commentary and Criticism section of Feminist Media Studies aims to publish brief (~1000 words), timely responses to current issues in feminist media culture, for an international readership. Submissions may pose a provocation, describe work in progress, or propose areas for future study. We will also consider book and event reviews, as well as contributions that depart from traditional academic formats. We encourage all submissions to strategically mobilise critique to also offer a productive contribution to both feminist politics and media studies. Submissions must go beyond mere description in order to be considered for publication in Commentary and Criticism.

    Please submit contributions by 26 April 2019, via email to both Melanie Kennedy (mjk29@le.ac.uk) and Safiya Noble (safiya.noble@usc.edu).We also welcome questions and expressions of interest in advance of the deadline.

    Submissions for Commentary and Criticism will not be correctly processed if submitted through via the Feminist Media Studies site, and should be emailed directly to Drs Kennedy and Noble using the email addresses above.

    Please be sure to follow the Feminist Media Studies style and referencing guides, which can be found here.

    4th International Teaching Forum

    November 14-15, 2019

    Clermont-Ferrand (France)

    Deadline: May 15, 2019

    Purpose

    According to the OECD, the internationalization of higher education has accelerated over the past fifteen years. With nearly 4.6 million international students in 2015, higher education institutions place the mobility of students at the centre of their methodologies.

    Most often student mobility takes the form of semesters and internships abroad as immersion in intercultural environments appears to facilitate the development of academic and non-academic skills. Numerous studies have shown the relevance of this type of educational experience (Ballatore 2006, Teichler and Janson 2007, Brandenburg 2014, Tarrant et al 2014, Potts 2015). Abroad, the student engages socially and academically with a culturally different environment, which leads to experimentation and related opportunities to develop multiple transversal skills. This encompasses the development of a set of attitudes and behaviors associated with individual skills, namely relational skills (ability to communicate, but also personal qualities/attitudes such as enthusiasm), organizational skills (the capacity to envisage solutions beyond the scope of personal reach), the aptitude to manage emotions and empathy, the building-up of complex attitudes (responsibility, open-mindedness, adaptability, tolerance, self-confidence, desire to learn) and even aesthetic skills which involve cultivating satisfactory images in coherence with those – put forward by the organization (Bailly and Léné, 2015, p.71). All these are generally known as intercultural skills.

    However, mobility experiences abroad are not the only opportunities for students to engage with intercultural environments. Pedagogies can be equally effective in promoting internationalization of education. This is the case when international students work with local students on various projects, or when visiting professors from abroad introduce students to pedagogical approaches with which students are unaccustomed, or when two teachers set up, in two different countries, a project within which students must interact via information and communication technologies. In short, a multitude of pedagogical practices exist that can potentially provide all students with intercultural experiences. This 4th International Teaching Forum will focus on these methodologies in order to identify them, to examine the skills they aim at fostering and to evaluate mechanisms used to measure their acquisition.

    In line with the previous three conferences (two were held at Shanghai Normal University in China in 2016 and 2017 and one at Utah Valley University in the United States in 2018), the overall objective of the 4th International Teaching Forum will be to address innovative pedagogical practices in higher education in different countries. Over two days, teachers and researchers together will work on issues related to the contributions and limits of innovative teaching practices, based on experiments conducted more particularly (but not exclusively) in the field of communication and management. This conference will take place in Clermont-Ferrand (France) on November 14th and 15th, 2019.

    For this edition, the theme of pedagogical innovation will be addressed from the perspective of interculturality and skills. Papers will discuss how teaching pedagogies have fostered the creation of a context favorable to interculturality and facilitated the acquisition of transversal skills. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

    • How pedagogical practices promote the creation of an intercultural context
    • What contribution information and communication technologies make to pedagogical innovations in intercultural situations
    • What skills are developed by students (local and / or international) in the context of intercultural learning
    • What assessment mechanisms are put in place to evaluate the acquisition of skills
    • What skills are acquired by teachers in such intercultural contexts
    • - What mode of communication is developed between teachers and students acting in a culturally different environment
    • - What role intercultural communication plays in these pedagogical practices

    The Forum aims to:

    • publish the proceedings on the conference website;
    • publish selected articles (finalized following the conference) in two journals (one in Information and Communication Sciences and the other in Management Sciences);
    • publish a volume on Innovative Pedagogical Practices and Interculturality.
    • The main language of the conference will be English, but papers may be presented in French.

    Dates and place of the conference

    The conference will take place on Thursday November 14th and Friday November 15th, 2019, at Université Clermont Auvergne (Clermont-Ferrand, France).

    The first day of the Teaching Forum will be centered on the presentation of selected papers. The second day will be organized in the form of round tables to promote the exchange of good practice and the constitution of workshops that can continue to collaborate after the conference. The round tables will be based on the themes which emerge from the papers presented.

    Important dates

    • May 15th, 2019: Proposals due
    • June 15th, 2019: Notification by the Scientific Committee
    • September 1st, 2019: Full papers due

    Moment Journal

    Deadline: September 1, 2019

    The emergence of new media and its affordances have generated an increasing interest not only in resurgence of centralized structures and surveillance, but also in their participatory potential. Such interest is, in fact, not historically distinctive; each time the society is introduced to a new medium of communication, its potential of being used for the broader social good or harm becomes a matter of debate. Then again, where the rise of authoritarianism in the world today is considered, enabling more citizen participation in social and political debate is regarded as a progressive contribution of new media in general.

    In Turkey’s context, participation is generally associated with practices that are limited to efforts to sustain electoral democracy and politics. However, looking at the increasing international scholarly calls for contribution on participation issue by numerous journals and books, one can see the diversity in the ways in which participation as a concept is understood as a very broad category, which may imply “interaction”, “engagement” or merely a social, political or cultural “joining”. For instance, Nico Carpentier (2013) defines participation in a much broader way than it is used in the academic lexicon of Turkey, but also with a narrower political signification than many others assume since he considers participation as an equalization of power relations in decision-making processes. Communication as a “practice” and media as an “institution” play a crucial role in strengthening or changing social power relations in such processes. The definition of participation by Henry Jenkins (2013), on the other hand, is closer to the broader meaning when he refers to "participatory cultures" of youth, including fan clubs, blogs, popular videos, online activism, etc.

    Within the framework outlined above, we invite submissions for Moment Journal’s issue on participation and the media, on topics including, but not limited to:

    • theoretical explorations on participation and the media
    • methodological perspectives on participatory communication research
    • electoral processes, participation and media performance
    • citizenship, media participation and public sphere
    • alternative, radical or community media, activism and participation
    • gender, ethnicity, age and equality in participation
    • new media, technological challenges and possibilities for participation
    • breaking the institutional production-consumption chain via participatory practices
    • new media and participatory practices at global and/or local levels
    • participatory practices in social media apps
    • youth cultures, fan clubs, new media and participation
    • participatory art practices via communication media

    The manuscripts should be submitted to the Moment Journal via Dergipark between June 1 and September 1, 2019. Submissions both in English and Turkish will be accepted.

    • Deadline: September 1, 2019
    • Publication Date: December 15, 2019

    Edited by: Luis A. Albornoz and Trinidad García Leiva

    This book reflects critically on issues of diversity, access, and the expansion of digital technologies in audio-visual industries, particularly in terms of economics and policies.

    It brings together specialists in cultural diversity and media industries, presenting an international and interdisciplinary collection of essays that draw from different fields of studies – notably Communication, Economics, Political Science and Law. Among the topics discussed are: the principle of diversity as a goal of cultural and communication policies, the assessment of the UNESCO Convention on Cultural Diversity, free trade agreements and the conception of cultural goods and services they advance, the challenges faced by the production, circulation and consumption of cultural content through the Internet, the role algorithms play in the organization and functioning of online platforms, Netflix and the hegemony of global media. The approach is a critical understanding of audio-visual diversity, that aims to transcend specific issues like media ownership, ideas portrayed or modes of consumption as such, to focus on a more balanced distribution of communicative power.
