2010 International Association of Media and Communication Research
(IAMCR) Congress

Braga, Portugal from July 18 to 22, 2010.

Community Communication Section

Call for papers and session coordinators
Submission deadline: January 31, 2010

The general theme for IAMCR’s 2010 conference is 'Communication and
Citizenship: Rethinking Crisis and Change'. The community
communication section is calling for papers that investigate the
relationship between community or alternative media, empowerment,
social policy and citizenship.
Community media projects have traditionally sought to provide access
to under-represented groups. Recent research has highlighted that
these practices contest and redefine conventional notions of
‘citizenship’.
• How successful has this body of work been in influencing social and
media policies?
• What does ‘participation’ mean in the context of community and
alternative media and how does it differ from other forms of media
participation (such as social networking)?
• How can the values, methods and structures of community-based and
alternative media production help to create a more open an egalitarian
online media environment? How can their experiences inform debates on
Internet regulation and digital broadcasting?
• What theories and methods are appropriate for investigating the
relationship between community or alternative media and citizenship?

Contributions which address the above questions are strongly
encouraged. In addition, we seek as always in‑depth and
cutting‑edge work on issues of media access, participation and
evaluation of outcomes; theoretically grounded case studies of media
projects undertaken by marginalized and under‑represented groups; the
development and support of public and community‑based media
institutions and infrastructures; the production and distribution of
community and alternative media, their audiences and contents; and
methodological, theoretical and historical contributions to the field.
Besides individual papers we call for panel proposals for specific
themes. Highly encouraged are also proposals for innovative session
formats, round table discussions and workshops. In addition, we are
looking for coordinators for screenings and field-trips.

About the Community Communication Section
IAMCR’s Community Communication section is a major international
forum for community and alternative media studies. This is the place
for research on media practices that differ significantly from
government and market‑dominated paradigms. Community and alternative
media originate, circulate and resonate from the sphere of civil
society, yet may interact with both state and market. Community media
serve specific cultural or geographic communities. The field includes
do‑it‑yourself media, media for social change, and a wide range of
non‑government and non‑commercial practices using all kinds of
communication technologies, and emphasizes ‘alternative research
methods’.

Guidelines for Participants
Individual or co-authored papers: Applicants must submit a 500 word
abstract that describes the topic of their paper and its significance,
the theoretical framework, and research methods.
Panel proposals: The panel coordinator must submit a well‑defined
statement of purpose, a complete list of panel participants, and full
abstracts for each presentation.
Other formats (workshops, screenings, field trips, etc.): The
coordinator must submit a well‑defined statement of purpose and a
detailed description of activities, as well as any infrastructure
requirements (space, projectors, etc.).
All submissions should include a paper title, as well as authors'
names, institutional affiliations and full contact information
(mailing address, email address, and telephone numbers). Please
indicate if you would be willing to chair a session.
Submissions in the authors’ native language (French and Spanish) must
also include an English translation.
Submissions should not be submitted to more than one IAMCR division.
Please send abstracts via the IAMCR 2010 conference website:
http://www.lasics.uminho.pt/ocs/index.php/iamcr/2010portugal/schedConf/cfp
For further information or assistance, please contact the Community
Communication Section Chair, Per Jauert, on pjauert[at]imv.au.dk

Submitting to the Right Section
Please consider carefully which IAMCR section is most appropriate for
your paper. We cannot guarantee acceptance if your paper has been sent
to the wrong section in the first instance (as places are extremely
limited). Please contact the Community Communication section committee
well before the deadline if you are unsure.
· Researchers examining community media for development purposes
should apply to the Participatory Communication Research section.
· Researchers studying ethnic community media within a Diaspora
framework should apply to the Diaspora and Media working group.
Visit www.iamcr.org for more information about IAMCR sections and
working groups.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is January 31, 2010.

The submissions or papers will be assessed and provisionally accepted
on the
basis of a peer review process.
