IMMAA (International Media Management Academic Association) is a global
association of academics researching critical issues of media management
with the goal of improving practice and understanding of media markets
and institutions for the ultimate benefit of media managers and the
students who will be the media managers of the future. Its diverse
international membership fosters and promotes an appreciation for the
differences among countries and cultures that contribute to
characteristics that differentiate national media markets and shape
relationships among them. Past conferences were held in Chicago, San
Francisco, Saarbrücken, New York, Lisbon, Pamplona, Moscow, Seoul, Sao
Paulo and Stuttgart.
*About IMMAA 2019 Conference - Media Management and Innovation*
The IMMAA 2019 Conferencewelcomes contributions from diverse
perspectives. Papers are encouraged to examine practical examples in
case study approaches and all qualitative and quantitative approaches to
research. Prioritization will be given to papers related to three key
1 - Conceptual investigations that deconstruct the concept of
‘innovation’. What is innovation at a time when new has become the norm?
How has research about media innovation and its management evolved over
time? To what extent is media innovation dependent on technology, and
what matters beyond technology? How can policy support media innovation?
What do the global North-South dichotomy and its narratives tell us
about media management and innovation?
2 - Empirical explorations that open discussion about the results of
experimentation and investigations pertaining to creative media outputs,
creative media models, creative processes and procedures in media
organizations- and how to manage all of this effectively. How are media
institutions prepare and cope with an evolving media environment with
changing patterns of consumption?
3 - Academic queries pertaining to the education of media management in
ways that are innovative in pedagogy and curricular design. How is the
media management curriculum evolving to embrace today’s dynamic industry
environment? How do media schools and programs prepare students to work
as competent managers in a dynamic environment that is increasingly
global and cross-cultural?
