Rethinking the press in the digital ecosystem

On the occasion of the centennial of the Diário do Minho regional newspaper, we invite the academic community to reflect on the reconfiguration of the written press in terms of professional, sociopolitical, cultural, economic, technical, ethical and legal issues within the new digital paradigm.

Focused on the scientific area of the Communication Sciences, this interdisciplinary event seeks to stimulate the reflection around the issues and changes that presently constitute a challenge of unprecedented magnitude for printed daily media that, throughout the previous centuries, already had to comply to a series of other vicissitudes (such as socio-political changes, new media competition, technological change, etc.).

The 26th International Public Relations Research Symposium (BledCom)

The main 2019 conference theme is *»Trust and Reputation«*. Trust is a foundation of social (and organizational) order and also serves as the underpinning of healthy relationships, exchanges and transactions. There is a growing concern globally that social and organizational trust is eroding, and that it has become harder for organizations to build and protect relationships with stakeholders many of whom themselves seem to be in conflict. In such a challenging environment, how does/should public relations (re)build trust and reputation to help us function as social beings operating in harmonious societies?

The conference theme this year is POWER AND THE MEDIA.  Scholars of media history have not just been concerned with analysis of the individuals, institutions and elites exerting control, but also with how the media has represented, perpetuated or challenged power structures. Taking place in the immediate aftermath of Britain’s planned exit from the European Union, the conference invites scholars and practitioners from all relevant disciplines to take part in a timely conversation about the relationship between power and the media, from the film and broadcasting industries and the press, to new media, social media and advertising.
