[Commlist] cfp: Prague Media Point conference

Thu Oct 08 09:20:06 GMT 2020


December 1-11, 2020
Extended submission deadline is October 13, 2020
Our theme in 2020 is (again)  WHAT’S WORKING
Back by popular demand! Last year, we at Prague Media Point decided we had had enough of all the doom and gloom around the media industry. Instead of looking backward at all the problems that have plagued the media in the internet age, we wanted to highlight initiatives, projects, and individuals that are actively countering those trends --  and succeeding. This solution-oriented approach resonated strongly with conference attendees, and based on their positive feedback, we have decided to adopt the same theme. Once again, we are encouraging submissions of abstracts and sessions by scholars and PhD candidates from journalism, media, technology, and other related discipline focusing examples in the media that are working and generating impact in the following subjects and topics, though this list is not exhaustive:
* Innovative ways to cover climate change
* Pandemic media coverage
* Media projects to counter polarization and disinformation
* Technology & security in editorial work and content delivery
* Effective methods for resisting threats to media freedom
* Engagement through social media
* Solutions and constructive journalism
* Trust-building techniques
* Different forms of storytelling
* Innovative business and ownership models
* Diversity in the newsroom

Confirmed speakers:
- Prof. Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, Director of Research Development and Environment, School of Journalism, Media, and Culture, University of Cardiff (UK)
- Roman Imielski, Deputy Editor in Chief, Gazeta Wyborcza (Poland)
- András Pethő, Founder and Editor, Direkt 36 (Hungary)
- Bas van Beek, Founder, Authentieke Journalistiek (The Netherlands)
Please submit your 500-word abstracts and a short bio by Oct 13, 2020.
