CFP: Media Accountability – Possibilities and Pitfalls in the Era of Web 2.0

International Conference on Media Accountability at the University of Lugano, 27/28 January 2012, Lugano, Switzerland.
Digitization of media and the resulting convergence of print, broadcasting and telecommunications have altered the media landscape significantly in recent years. The traditional mass media is thus confronted with a variety of new online competitors like social media sites or others produced by users themselves (blogs, for instance). This new competition puts traditional and established accountability models such as press councils, ombudsmen or ethic codes in question. However, new digital opportunities allow the recipients to actively participate in the debate on how the media are to be held accountable – even though, at the moment, the number of people who actively participate in the debate remains rather low.
Submissions focusing on media accountability, in particular with regard to new online technologies such as social media (Facebook, Twitter etc.) and innovative Web-based accountability processes are encouraged. Deadline for submissions: October 31, 2011.

CFP: Society for Cinema and Media Studies

The “Host City”: Media Festivals and Urban Spaces
Society for Cinema and Media Studies, Boston, MA, March 21-25, 2012
The panel invites papers on relationships between film and media
industry festivals and the urban, sub-urban or rural communities that
claim them.
As film and media festivals of all stripe proliferate around
the world, a variety of stakeholders jockey for position and advantage
in the geographical and cultural contexts chosen to host them. Many of
these events are well-established and have assumed a defensive position
aimed at maintaining brand identity and prestige. Others are ascendant,
still others nascent at best. Each of these communities, however, have a
unique relationship to their event(s), and each of these relationships
provides fertile ground for investigating the role of media festivals in
promoting discourses of community identity, establishing infrastructural
networks, reifying the importance of being mediated, utilizing the
“local” to speak “globally”, and a variety of other processes. Case
studies on particular events/locations, comparative analyses, and
attempts to theorize the event-location relationship are welcome, among
other approaches.
Send abstracts of 250 words plus a short bio to robert.peaslee@ttu.edu by August 15, 2011.
