Post-Representative Participations: Engaging with Civic Action in the Times of Digital Citizenship

The Media, Communications and Cultural Studies Association’s Postgraduate Network (MeCCSA PGN), the Participatory Communication Research (PCR) section of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), and the Centre for Digital Media Cultures, University of Brighton invites postgraduate students, early-career researchers, filmmakers, civil society members and activists to submit proposals for our joint one-day conference at University of Brighton.

The aim of this conference is to provide a platform for the critical dialogue between Participatory Communication Research communities and media practitioners (such as activists, filmmakers etc.) to examine the issues of social, political and cultural change in the times of digital media, giving a particular focus on ‘digital citizenship’. It also aims to bring together international academics and media practitioners to explore the creative participatory methods. We are keen to involve not only academic presentations, but also workshops and film screenings by media practitioners at the event, giving them the chance to present their work, ideas and practices to an international audience.

Rethinking cultural journalism and cultural critique in digital media culture

This conference engages with how journalistic authority and critical expertise within the cultural field is being reconfigured /in/ the digital media landscape and /by means of/ digital media, as the boundaries of ‘cultural journalism’ and ‘cultural critique’, and who may be labeled a ‘cultural journalist’ or a ‘cultural critic’ blur. More specifically, the conference addresses the shifting relations between specialists / generalists, producers / users, public / private, objectivity / subjectivity, emotionality / rationality in cultural journalism and cultural critique in the digital age.

There is no conference fee but participants must themselves arrange travel/accommodation and cover these expenses.

The 25:th NIC Symposium on Intercultural Communication

The 25th NIC conference, organized by the Center For Social Exclusion and Learning (SEAL), at Aalborg University, aims to address such historical legacies as they remain present in our day-to-day experience and practices. Further, we seek to understand the import and influence of decolonialization and multiple belongings in current communication practices, as well as how these pertain to and inform capabilities for the 21 century. How can we conceptualize communication in relation to multiple belongings? Who has the authority to define and delimit culture, difference, and belonging? Who is allowed to speak for or represent culture, groups, identities?
