[ecrea] CALL FOR POSTERS: IAMCR online conference: The Edge of Money: Hegemony or resistance?

Wed Jul 08 13:42:55 GMT 2015

*CALL FOR POSTERS: IAMCR online conference*


*TITLE: The Edge of Money: Hegemony or resistance?*

DEADLINE: NOW – upload your posters (png, gif, jpg)

 From July 12-16, 2015, the cutting edge of communications researchers
will converge in Montreal, Canada, at the annual meeting of
International Association for Media and Communication Research
(IAMCR/AIECS/AIERI), the world’s preeminent global communications and
media research association. Rich in resonances, deft in dialog, an
abundance of work on surveillance, democracy, technology, and cultural
production will be shared under the theme ‘hegemony or resistance’.

However, one important hegemony – the edge of money – will be largely
unaccounted for.

Due to high conference fees of hundreds of dollars per participant, vast
segments of the IAMCR community will be underrepresented. The absence of
civil society and community organizations, students, adjuncts, and other
researchers without institutional affiliations and support reduces the
richness of IAMCR’s work.

The Edge of Money online conference seeks to raise important questions,

- Whose stories remain untold?

- Which experiences will IAMCR miss?

- What research will be excluded, and what important areas of policy
will either be neglected or presented only from a privileged viewpoint?

- What research is most valued and needed by those who cannot afford to

We propose to raise these questions through an IAMCR online conference
featuring posters. We ask that those who cannot afford to attend IAMCR,
but have something to contribute, post photographs of your posters to
the online platform:

Please create a poster telling your story, you may choose to include:

1) Who you are or how you want to be identified?

2) What perspective you would bring to IAMCR if you could afford to attend?

3) What burning issues you feel need to be addressed to make IAMCR more

4) A photo of your poster and, in the style of, you may want to include yourself in the
photo (holding the poster, for instance).

These posters will be on display during the IAMCR event in Montreal.
