7019408323_583807933c_k

European media and journalism researchers are heading to Montreal, Canada to IAMCR2015.

The global conference’s theme this year seeks to explore the ambiguous relationship of communication towards hegemony and resistance. Hundreds of presentations and special sessions will focus on large spectrum of case studies, and theoretical perspectives on contemporary, international media landscape.

Of course, new technology and innovations are represented especially in the Journalism Research and Education stream.

The most popular of all the sections is lead by Ibrahim Saleh, University Cape Town, South Africa.
This year’s specialty is a joint-stream JRE/UNESCO on Safety of Journalism. It is chaired and monitored by Reeta Pöyhtäri from UNESCO/Paris. The action starts on Sunday 12th and ends on Thursday 16th July.
