Music and the Sacred

In the conference, the aim is to address the various ways in which music intersects with sacred phenomena, and vice versa. This entails acknowledging the multidimensionality of both music and the sacred, and how music becomes sacralised in diverse ways and how the sacred becomes reconceptualised in musical contexts.

Brazil-France-Francophone Belgium Journalism Research Conference

Studying the socio-cultural boundaries of journalism requires one to reflect on the dynamics of transformation, diversification and cooperation between journalists and other social spaces. This theme, so dear to the Brazilian, French and Belgian community of researchers, will be debated at the 1st Brazil-France-Belgium Francophone Colloquium on Journalism Studies, organized by SBPJor, in partnership with GIS-Journalisme and the ReSIC-Université Libre de Bruxelles.

“New perspectives on data”, SMiDs årsmöte 2018.

Digital technology has changed the relationships between media and communication researchers and their data. The collecting, storing, and handling of data have always been subject to changing definitions and theorizations, but with the “digital turn” these changes are more prominent than before. Thus, with digitalization, “old” media as well as “new” exist in novel configurations of technology, production, and usage, and these processes influence the ways researchers collect, engage with, and communicate empirical material. Even though phenomena such as “big data” and datafication are important in this development with their emphasis on large datasets and quantification, the digital turn also influences qualitative research that relies on, for example, interviews, ethnography, discourse analysis, etc. Not everything is digital, and analogue and electronic materials remain important to media research. However, the change in materiality that follows from digitization transforms infrastructures and tools for researchers to engage with their data.

Rethinking cultural journalism and cultural critique in digital media culture

This conference engages with how journalistic authority and critical expertise within the cultural field is being reconfigured /in/ the digital media landscape and /by means of/ digital media, as the boundaries of ‘cultural journalism’ and ‘cultural critique’, and who may be labeled a ‘cultural journalist’ or a ‘cultural critic’ blur. More specifically, the conference addresses the shifting relations between specialists / generalists, producers / users, public / private, objectivity / subjectivity, emotionality / rationality in cultural journalism and cultural critique in the digital age.

There is no conference fee but participants must themselves arrange travel/accommodation and cover these expenses.

2nd European Symposium on Societal Challenges in Computational Social

This is the second in a series of three symposia that discuss societal challenges in computational social sciences. This year, the focus will be on “Bias and Discrimination” (Cologne, 2018) – an extension of the first symposium. The focus of last year was “Inequality and Imbalance” (London, 2017) and the last symposium of this series will focus on “Polarization and Radicalization” (Zurich, 2019).

With these three events we provide a platform to address one of the most pressing challenges in today’s digital society: understanding the role that digital technologies, the Web, and the algorithms used therein play in the mediation and creation of inequalities, discrimination and polarization.

What’s (the) News? Values, Viruses and Vectors of Newsworthiness

We invite participants to engage in a critical discussion of newsworthiness. Possible questions which can be addressed are: are there topics which are newsworthy by nature, which elements arouse most interest in human psyche, which stories and/or sources do journalists and their audience find worth sharing, how do news values vary between media types and news beats, how can journalists or news workers construct issues or events as interesting, what is the relation between newsworthiness and publishing platforms.
