CMSTW'2022, a conference on comparative studies of communication and media, is coming soon! 🙂 April 19-20, 2022 - please save the dates. The full CfP is attached to this letter.
'Comparative Media Studies in Today's World' will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2022. We invite you to submit to the conference (Easychair will open soon) and to follow our Facebook community at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.facebook.com_cmstwconf&d=DwIDaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=IFHStyjdGKKqqy9a2pdpZdydZofkoqwoPHRN_h91MUB7_IbLQRXrsezyHz2u4dHu&s=Oy9zuWtgI4kHahSnUogyZETPUNHmCit4sztfD1j-cBw&e= .
The conference theme this year is Mediated Solidarities and Inequalities. We want to make a strong claim for media and communication as a source, means, and condition for solidarity search in the times of inequalities, disparities, and divisions. Today, networked communication is focus of attention for hundreds of scholars, and interlinking network structures and content is one of the conference foci.
In 2022, we will have several new formats and will feature both new members of the CMSTW family and those who have helped us to gain our place in media science. Among the invited guests, there will be Silvio Waisbord, Ingrid Volkmer, Susanne Fengler, Katrin Voltmer, Anna Gladkova, Anna Litvinenko, and many more. We will have events for young scholars, invited panels from ICA and IAMCR, new books session, and virtual tours, among the rest.
The conference portal cmstw2022.org will be open by December 20, 2021 (meanwhile, you can check the previous conference, cmstw2021.org); the deadline for abstract and extended abstract submissions will be February 25. More on publishing options and awards to come soon!
