Comics and Society: Research, Art, and Cultural Politics Nordic Summer University Winter Symposium

Comics and Society is an interdisciplinary three-year initiative that aims to cultivate our understanding of comics as a social and socially defined phenomenon and to strengthen the status of comic art and comics scholarship in the Nordic-Baltic region. Through academic discussion, artistic work, and social engagement we explore how comics take part in making sense of societies, social phenomena, and societal changes especially, but not exclusively, in the Nordic and Baltic countries.

Graduate Workshop “Sisterhood on Twitter”

Sisterhood on Twitter? ICT-based Collective Action and Narratives of Solidarity and Justice" - the deadline for submissions is 20 January 2019.
What are mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion in ICT-based collective actions? What is the actual visibility that these kind of actions can hope to achieve? Who are the most visible actors within their narrow context? What narratives do these actors voice? How do the actors’ narratives of solidarity and justice clash with feminist ideas about gender equality and justice?

The goal of the workshop is to develop new thoughts about the topic at hand, gather inspiration for your own work, and connect with academics working on similar issues.

- 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.

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.

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.
