We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the forthcoming international conference entitled “Media, Polis, Agora: Journalism, Communication and Humanities in the New Technology Era”. The conference is organized jointly by the *Advanced Media Institute*, the *Open University (Cyprus) *Cyprus University of Technology* and *University of Nicosia*, in Nicosia Cyprus.

The multi-disciplinary conference aims to bring together academics and professionals, especially from the fields of media studies, journalism, communication, politics, law, sociology, governance, humanities, cultural analysis and technologies, to elaborate, discuss and advance ideas on the inter-relationship, synergies, conflict, policy and future directions of humanities, journalism, and communications in a new era dominated by technology. It will address areas related to the dynamic interplay between the media, the polis (politics) and the public sphere (agora). Some of the main themes that will be covered in this conference include advances in digital journalism, the future of humanities as a discipline in a technology-dominated era, the regulatory framework of the media in the new technological era, the challenges and ethical considerations of content creation in the new media, and the examination of how technological advances can promote research in humanities. We welcome theoretical, methodological and empirical submissions on these issues.

  Moreover, and perhaps more importantly, the conference seeks to build
  bridges between academia and the profession, between the humanities
  and the new technologies, and between the media actors and experts of
  their regulation. Thus, we welcome laboratories, workshops and
  seminars to demonstrate innovative practices, discuss ideas and share
  best practices regarding the themes of the conference.

We call for potential speakers to submit an abstract in English ranging from 250 - 500 words in English by April 1st, 2020.
