[Commlist] cfp/cfw: Local Media Fal(l) School

Wed Jul 31 19:44:06 GMT 2019

NEW DATE (cfp/cfw): August 31



September, 19-21

University of Beira Interior (Covilhã, PT)

The project Remedia.Lab - Laboratory & Incubator of Regional Media,
headquartered in the research unit Labcom.IFP of the University of Beira
Interior (Covilhã, Portugal), receives *until August 31* proposals for
communication and multimedia journalism projects to be developed within
the scope of LOCAL MEDIA FAL(L) SCHOOL, the first fall school on “Local,
regional, community and proximity media”, which will take place
September 19-21 in Covilhã.

The answer to this call for papers can assume three forms: a) academic
work, b) journalistic work, or c) both.


Remedia.Lab and LabCom.IFP recognize the existence of an increased
interest in proximity media in the form of diverse scientific and
academic approaches. Therefore, we invite all interested parties to
present a summary of the topic "Local, Community, and Proximity Media",
with approximately 500 words,  clearly identifying objectives,
methodology, and results (verified or expected). Proposals are accepted,
but not exclusively, on the following topics:

-Local and community media and news building;

- Local and community media and the digital switchover;

- Local and community media and new platforms;

- Local and community media and new business models;

-Local and community media and new media narratives;

- Local and community media, culture, and heritage;

- Local and community media and citizenship;

- Local and community media  and participation;

- Local and community media and collaborative culture;

- Local and community media and local services;

- Local and community media and local governance.

In the event there will be a set of parallel scientific sessions,
destined to the communication of the proposals approved by the
Scientific Committee at a maximum of 20. The enrolled ones will be able
to attend conferences and training actions with academics, journalists
and media managers .

Registration for the presentation of communications has a cost of 50
euros, except for students of all cycles of the University of Beira
Interior, for whom the value will be 25 euros. Participants will be
entitled to a certificate and the publication of the article in a book
to be edited by LabCom.IFP.


Participants may, in addition to scientific communication, also present
a journalistic project, to be developed during the Fall School.
Participants in this project are challenged to design a short
journalistic narrative about a regional gastronomic event that takes
place between 18 and 22 September, in the city of Covilhã. It is the
Festival of Cherovia, a typical regional product of Cova da Beira, which
is a pretext for five days of strong tourist and gastronomic animation,
with events taking place throughout the historical area of the city.
Those interested will have training actions with journalists, academics
and technicians so that they can develop their project. The use of
mobile devices shall be preferred for the development of works for one
of the following modalities:

- Video-reporting;

- Social media reporting (eg Instagram);

- Multimedia reporting for a blog.

The capture of sounds and images will be done by each participant during
the festival, which takes place mostly at night.

The best project in each of the categories will be selected and awarded
by a jury.
