CAMRA 2021: a snapshot of community and alternative media research in Australia

26 February 2021 (online)

CAMRA 2021 is an online workshop aiming to showcase, connect and encourage research on community and alternative media in Australia. We invite papers and presentations on any aspect of Australian community, alternative and activist media, broadly defined. Formats may include informal works in progress or more polished papers on completed research.

Suggested priority themes include but are not limited to:

  * Decentring white privilege: Decolonising and diversifying
    alternative media;
  * The ‘radical radio’ tradition 40 years on;
  * Community and alternative media in the context of white supremacy,
    resurgent racisms and authoritarianism;
  * Community media during the pandemic;
  * The implications of corporate social media platforms for community
    and activist media.

CAMRA 2021 welcomes participation from researchers and practitioners in Australia across community and activist media very broadly defined – including alternative media in all its guises, the community broadcasting sector, community media interventions, alternative journalism initiatives, citizens media, media activism and more.

To propose a paper or presentation for the workshop, please send a title, abstract (200 words max) and a bio note including your academic or organisational affiliation to (CAMRA2021 /at/ <mailto:(CAMRA2021 /at/> no later than *25 January, 2021.*
