[Commlist] CFP: "Media literacy in a media-rich ecology" Conference - ISCTE-IUL

Fri Jul 26 16:17:13 GMT 2019

*Call for papers: "Media literacy in a media-rich ecology" *Conference* *

ISCTE-IUL, Lisbon, in association with the European project MediaCoach Initiative, is pleased to announce a call for proposals for the Conference "Media literacy in a media-rich ecology", which will be held December 4, 2019 (Wednesday), at ISCTE-IUL, Portugal (

*Concerning the theme:*

*Media literacy in a media-rich ecology*

As the current digitally mediated environment becomes an ever more substantial means through which individuals structure their personal and social lives, it is increasingly important that they understand the complex nature of media ecology. The media permeate virtually all domains of the lives of common citizens, embedded in domestic and social lives, education and training, work and leisure. Though they offer plenty of opportunities in all these areas, they also pose challenges at the personal and societal levels. Given the fast pace of technological change in our current media-rich ecology, the increase in media-literate individuals is seen as a desirable societal goal in an age where media illiteracy tends to be regarded as problematic as traditional illiteracy. This environment also prompts a renewed effort to conceptualize, measure and disseminate media literacy worldwide, posing its own challenges for research and policy.

This conference aims not only to reach the scholarly community interested in digital and media literacy, but also to encourage non-profit organizations and activists working on media literacy-related initiatives to join us in discussion.

There will be three panels with the following topics:

1 - Digital literacy related activism and non-profit Organizations

3 - Digital literacy and Policy
