I have a dream… Media, utopia and experiment

Calling the Shots – Then, Now, and Next.

Childhood and Youth Culture on YouTube

The seminar will gather researchers from media studies, childhood studies and youth studies who address children and youth culture on YouTube as their object of study. We will identify key areas and trends in the current research on the subject in order to seek out possible ground for further collaboration. The seminar runs over two days and it will involve presentations of current research as well as workshops aimed at developing future projects. The first day will be initiated with a keynote address by Björn Sjöblom, Associate Professor at the Department of Children and Youth Studies at Stockholm University, followed by presentations of current research in the field and a poster session allowing for more dynamic interaction and networking. The second day of the seminar will consist of three parallel workshops dealing with 1) the media systems and business models, 2) genres and content and 3) the uses and use contexts of YouTube respectively. The workshops will be followed by a general discussion and wrap up regarding future collaboration in the field.

 

If you would like to participate, please send a short abstract (250 words) for posters and workshops or an extended abstract (1500 words) for presentations to annemette@thorhauge.dk and stineliv@cc.au.dk.
