Call for Papers: 6th Annual International Conference on Journalism & Mass Communications


6th Journalism & Mass Communications Conference (JMComm 2017) will be held in Singapore, on 9th – 10th October 2017. Here is the required information.

Conference Theme: Journalism, Media and Mass Communication in the Age of Information

Mass media is seen in nearly every facet of our daily lives and technology is constantly altering the way we live. The technology boom that has been felt around the world has forever changed communication as we know it and has greatly impacted our personal and professional lives. Presently, the media as a vehicle of social change influence appearance, language, family, status, politics, and religion.

Certain differences exist between information, entertainment, and communication in today’s society, particularly in relation to mass media. These various media interactions have converged in our current society in a number of ways and have impacted social relations through the way we communicate with one another. Educational implications require an understanding of the complex world through interdisciplinary scholarship, critical viewing, new values, and an examination of the impact of the mass media.

With all the new technology, digital tools and connectivity, one of the most interesting fallouts has been the intensification of social connections… connecting the world as a single place, and creating a greater awareness of opinion, bias, and raw news. The intersection of globalization, communication, and journalism defines an important and growing field of research, particularly concerning the public sphere and spaces for political discourse.

Call for Papers: Early years of digital culture in Turkey (1997-2004)

Computer and Globe

Dr. Erkan Saka and Dr. Ivo Furman of Istanbul Bilgi University Faculty of Communication have announced a call for papers to celebrate the 20th year of digital culture in Turkey.

Despite being around for more than five decades, our understanding of the Internet history and digital cultures within non-western contexts is very much in its infancy. This is partly caused by the dominance of North American (and English-speaking) studies of early digital culture. Reading these accounts can be misleading in that one might be led to assume that the origins of digital culture was a primarily North American (and English-speaking) phenomenon.

Instead, we argue that rather than passively appropriating the Internet as a communication technology, local socio-cultural milieus of relatively peripheral countries such as Turkey have played an active role in shaping the potential of Internet and creating their own unique digital cultures. Accordingly, this call looks to answer the pertinent need to account for digital culture within peripheral or non-Western contexts and contribute to the diversification of research in Internet Studies.
We intend the collection to be interdisciplinary in scope, with contributions drawing upon a range of disciplinary perspectives including communication studies, information studies, history, sociology and linguistics. Possible topics can include
Media representations of the Internet
Internet/Digital Art
E-government projects
Piracy, Hacking, Modding/Phreaking
Internet Spaces
Case Studies
·  Early Internet celebrities
·  Blogs
·  Iconic sites
·  Internet memes
·  E-Zines
·  Moral Panics
·  Chatroom cultures
·  Gaming subcultures
·  Pioneers and Pioneering cultures
Business histories of the Web
·  Entrepreneurs
·  “Digital Bosphorus”
Software and Hardware cultures
·  Infrastructure of the Internet in Turkey
·  Web governance
·  Computer Mediated Communication
Possible types of contributions may include reports, case-studies, visual archives, interviews. Deadline for contribution abstracts (250 words or so with a title and a short bio) is March 1st, 2017.

Ege University 16th International Cultural Studies Symposium “NARRATIVES OF TRAUMA”


This conference is about the influence of trauma both on individuals and on cultures and about the necessity to share and translate such traumatic affect. By concentrating on rhetorical, semiotic and social aspects, the conference aims to focus on the phenomenon of trauma and its different manifestations and to consider the elements that may generate the aporias of trauma and offer new possibilities for survival, recovery and healing. Therefore, the goal of this conference is to challenge the recent boundaries and assumptions of the field, encouraging new approaches for trauma studies.

Since the nature of our symposium has traditionally been cross/interdisciplinary, research and studies from all disciplines in the social sciences along with relevant applied sciences are invited in the following topics:
– Individual and collective trauma
– Writing trauma
– The unrepresentable
– Silence and trauma
– Love and death
– Self and trauma
– Trauma and family
– Autobiographies, life writings, memoirs
– Post-memory, post-trauma
– Representations of trauma
– Ethics of trauma narratives
– Post 9/11

CfP: NeoLiberalism and Media of Journal of Media Critiques

o-MEDIA-facebook.jpgInterrogating the role of knowledge, methods and practices of communication and media in the formation, reproduction, and reflection of neoliberal modes, this issue will look at the ways in which intervening in bodies of communication and media knowledge offer pathways for structural transformation. By the order of neoliberalism since the 1980s, many media and communication scholars have redirected their criticisms from capitalism to neoliberalism. Therefore; mapping the legacies and meanings of the terms liberalism and neoliberalism and revealing the complexity and specifity of what neoliberalism is today, indicate the necessity of prospecting.

Journal of Media Critiques is expecting critical papers from different perspectives, as indicated above neoliberalism context based on the media, communication and information theme. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

* *Hegemony of Pluralism in Media and Cultural Studies*

* *Determinism or Functionalism in Media and Technology*

* *Marginalization of Media and Communication Studies*

* *Neoliberalism and Media, Communication Studies*

* *Neoliberalism as a Replacement of Capitalism*

* *Media and Cultural Industries as Neoliberal Markets*

Please register international online journal, Journal of Media Critiques for uploading your completed paper by *August 25, 2016*.

CFP Feminist Media Histories: Special Issue on Data

2-cover-source“Data” has enormous cultural currency in the world today. Most of us understand that corporations are encoding and analyzing our habits, preferences, and behaviors on a massive scale. Personalized music suggestions, predictive policing, and Amazon recommendations are all part of this pervasive data regime. Discussions of this regime, and of data more generally, tend to focus on the present. But the concept of data also has a history, one embedded in a range of cultural, political, and material contexts. Building upon recent feminist scholarship that has drawn our attention to the various ways data shapes twenty first-century life–how data affects our experience of gender, how the effects of gendered data are felt differently across racial lines, and what feminist theory might bring to data and its visualization, to name only a few–this issue seeks to model how feminist histories of data might help us chart a range of unexplored futures.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Data and media.
  • Data and history.
  • Data and narrative.
  • Data and gender.
  • Data and method.
  • Data as concept.
  • Data as politics.
  • Data as agent.
  • Data in the world.
Interested contributors should contact guest editors Miriam Posner and Lauren Klein 
directly, sending a 300-word proposal no later than June 30, 2016:

Contributors will be notified by July 15, 2016; articles will be due October 1, 2016.


CFP by Media, Culture & Society: Digital Images, Global Conflicts

home_cover.gifThe role of images in conflicts (war, terror, riot, civic action, etc.) has changed dramatically over the past decade due to globalization and digitalization. The rapid and extensive dissemination of images from conflicts results in an intensified struggle for gaining public visibility and shaping public opinion, prompting competing narratives and counter narratives, suppression, spin, and persistent allegations of falsification and manipulation.

Contributions addressing such subjects are welcomed:

 The transformed public visibility of conflicts and (possible) challenges and changes to traditional power balances in a globalized world.

 The role played by images in (online) strategic communication, such as propaganda, campaigns, and recruitment by various groups and institutions involved in conflicts.

 New genres for representing global, regional, and local conflicts proliferating on social media, such as selfies, memes, and their reconfigurations of traditional genres.

 The role of visual icons in the age of mass production and global dissemination of images.

 Convergence and competition between professional and non-professional approaches to documenting conflicts.

 The transforming gatekeeping role of the mainstream mass media concerning conflict coverage.

 New theories for understanding the changed role of visual representation of conflicts in the digitalized mediascape.

 Analytical approaches to mobile media and networked dissemination of images of conflict.

 Empirical investigations of local reactions and emotions sparked by images in the global media circuit

Please submit proposals for articles of approximately 500 words to the editors of the special issue,, and no later than 1 May 2016.
