Second international Media Industries conference, hosted by the
Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries, King’s College London.
Following the success of Media Industries: Current Debates and Future
Directions (2018) we are pleased to announce the next Media Industries
conference will take place in April 2020.
Media Industries 2020 (MI2020) maintains an open intellectual agenda,
inviting papers, panels or workshops exploring the full breadth of media
industries, in contemporary and historical contexts, and from all
traditions of media industries scholarship. MI2020 will therefore
provide a meeting ground for all forms of media industries research.
As a specialized focus, the 2020 conference takes Global Currents and
Contradictions as its coordinating theme. In media industries
scholarship, repeated attention to a few key territories, frequently but
not exclusively located in the Global North, has concentrated but also
limited the scope of the field. In choosing the theme Global Currents
and Contradictions, we are therefore particularly interested in
receiving submissions engaging with industries, contexts and bodies of
research that represent, extend or challenge the geographic reach of the
field. To headline this theme, a programme of keynote speakers will be
announced in due course.
A core aim of the Media Industries conference is to bring together
scholars researching media industries from across multiple professional
associations and their relevant sub-groups or sections.
The Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries at King’s
College London is therefore very pleased to be organizing MI2020 in

solo or co-presented research papers followed by questions.
iii. Pre-constituted Workshops
Format: 90mins interactive forum led by 4 to 6 x 6mins thematically
linked informal presentations. Led by a chair or co-chairs, workshops
adopt a roundtable format bringing together 4 to 6 speakers to offer
short (up to 6 minute) position statements or interventions designed to
trigger discussions around a central theme, issue, or problem. As such,
the workshop does not involve the presentation of formal research
papers, but rather is designed to create a forum for the speakers and
the audience to engage in a shared discussion. The workshop format is
flexible and can be adapted to allow the chair or co-chairs to introduce
exercises or other activities where appropriate.
Delegates can make TWO contributions to the conference but only ONE in
any category, i.e. presenting an open call paper and participating in a
workshop will be permitted but presenting two open call papers will not
