The Future of Media Education Post-Pandemic

Call for scholarly presentations at the NMLC Online gathering on November 6-7, 2020

DEADLINE: *_September 7_*

While we are in the midst of the global health pandemic, with the consequent economic crisis and increased calls for social justice, the Northeast Media Literacy Conference would like to invite the media education community to submit academic presentations on the effect of the pandemic on best practices as well as the impact of the physical isolation and remote engagement on the future of media education.

We define media education as including any learning process (formal/informal/connected learning/third space) that involves either analyzing media or/and producing media. In contrast to educational technology, online or blended learning, we look for proposals highlighting the process of media practice to enhance learners’ abilities to access information and tools; analyze media representation, revealing the power dynamics behind systems, structures and concepts; create meaningful media messages; reflect on media use; be socially responsible and advance society toward the common good.

We welcome proposals, using qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, and critical cultural approaches, from multidisciplinary educators around the world who have experience in teaching media education during this pandemic. Following a peer reviewed process, the accepted proposals will be scheduled to engage in a real time video conference presentation as an intercultural dialogue. The dialogue would be the basis of a larger discussion at the conference regarding the future of media education as a result of the pandemic. Presenters will be encouraged to submit full papers as chapter proposals (4,000-6,000 words including references using APA style) of an upcoming edited book. All submissions must be original work and have not been previously published. (Note: acceptance to the conference does not guarantee acceptance as a chapter for the edited book).

To submit a proposal,please complete this proposal by September 7 <>. Notifications will be sent by October 1. If you have any questions or would like to brainstorm an idea, feel free to reach out to the associate editors:
