Media Sociology Preconference 2019

Media sociology has long been a highly diverse field spanning many topics, methodologies, and units of analysis. It encompasses all forms of mass-mediated communication and expression, including news media, entertainment media, as well as digital ("new") and non-digital ("old") media. Outstanding research exists within the different subfields both within and beyond the discipline of sociology. Our aim is to create dialogue among these disparate yet complementary traditions.
This preconference is held one day before the start of the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in NYC.

2nd International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Discourse and Communication in Professional Contexts

We have seen an upsurge in research into organizational communication, PR communication, corporate communication, branding communication etc. Whereas this voluminous strand of research has delved ever deeper into the instrumental nature of organizational/corporate communication, little attention, outside organizational discourse studies, has been devoted to examining what happens when we allow organizational/corporate communication to constitute the reality in which we live. This conference explores our understanding of what dark side communication activities ‘are’ and what they ‘do’ in or with reference to organizational contexts.

The conference is organized by the Communicating Organizations Research Group at Aalborg University

NordMedia 2019

In an increasingly interconnected and accelerated world, our academic field offers significant opportunities to grapple with shifting and often contentious media and communication landscapes. With these opportunities comes a charge for responsible research and reporting of results, as scholars make their work public through their teaching, publishing, and engagement in the world beyond the academy. Are we living up to this charge? Do our current approaches work? How might we work both responsibly and creatively?

The NordMedia 2019 conference will be open for abstract submissions at the beginning of January 2019. The deadline for abstract submission is February 28th, 2019. At the end of March, the chairs of the divisions/working groups will have made their decision and an acceptance or rejection letter will be sent by email. The deadline for full papers and long abstracts is June 30th.

28 aug to 30 aug 2019

Cape Town, South Africa


This year’s theme looks at the positions of media producers and users as being inside or outside media systems; from being inside the echo chamber to being shut out by censorship; from speaking as an inside whistleblower to being left outside the frame. Who has and who controls access to creative technologies and distribution? Who speaks, who is being followed, who is being listened to and whose voices are being amplified? What is heard on air, or edited out? How does one’s position (either inside or outside) make one vulnerable, empowered, educated or misinformed?

The everytime-and-everywhere-access to mobile media has changed children’s and adolescents’ everyday life with potential implications on their -from a broad perspective- socialization, consumer patterns, schooling orientated behaviour among others. This conference wants to address these issues both from a theoretical and methodological perspective.
