Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Academy Colloquium The Audience Turn in Journalism

The aim of this focused conference is to further knowledge of how the digitalization of journalism has changed and continues to shape news user practices, experiences and public engagement. As evident from the title, the colloquium takes a user-perspective to gain a better understanding of changing news habits in a digital era. Thus far, the audience perspective has received limited attention within journalism studies. If we want to capture and understand how digitalisation, globalisation and the increasing participatory nature of journalism have shaped people’s engagement with news, new theories, concepts and research methods are needed that put the news user center-stage.

MZES Open Social Science Conference 2019 (OSSC19)

Open Science refers to a broad, transdisciplinary movement aiming to open up research processes to promote the integrity, reproducibility, and value of scholarly work. Responding to pressing credibility and replicability problems in science, this movement has thoroughly changed the fields of psychology and economy. Clearly, a similar fundamental rearrangement is coming in all social sciences, including political science, sociology, and communication. This interdisciplinary conference brings together a mix of leading senior and junior scholars to present and discuss state of the art and future directions for open science practices in the social sciences.

- UNCOVERED - Investigative Journalism for Europe Conference

Two years ago the European Parliament initiated a special fund to be spent exclusively on cross-border investigative journalism, the #IJ4EU. The grants from this fund, launched by the ECPMF and managed by International Press Institute (IPI), were awarded to twelve transnational teams from across Europe.  The UNCOVERED Conference will give a stage to grantees to present the results of their work. Topics vary from investigations into the murder of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, the misuse of EU funds in Romania and Bulgaria, and the disappearence of 10,000 migrant children in the so-called migrant crisis – to name but a few.
