The conference “Media, Polis, Agora: Journalism & Communication in the Digital Era” is calling for papers. The conference is organized jointly by the Advanced Media Institute, the Open University (Cyprus) and the Laboratoire d’ Études et de Recherches Appliquées en Sciences Sociales, Université de Toulouse (France), in Thessaloniki Greece.
This interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together scholars, professionals and practitioners from diverse fields — including journalism studies, media and communication studies, political communication, sociology, critical humanities, policy and governance studies, technology studies, and cultural analysis– to discuss the dynamic and continuous pivotal interplay of politics (polis), journalism and communication (media) and the public sphere (agora). The conference will further discuss the challenges that the advancement in digital journalism, ethics and content creation, mediated public discourse, new media and positions, as well as mediated political, public and civic action brings to those three spheres. We welcome theoretical, methodological and empirical submissions, case studies, and comparative work from all over the world.
500-word abstracts in English should be submitted by 10 April 2018.
