International symposium with the theme Journalism, Diaspora and Conflict Resolution is now calling for papers. The symposium, organised by Media of Diaspora Research Group (MDRG) of University of Lincoln, will be held Friday 16th of October, 2015.

They welcome papers on the theme of the conference including, but not limited to
