MeCCSA 2019 Call for Papers

9 – 11 January 2019

University of Stirling

Theme: Continuity & Change – Media, Communications & Politics

Final deadline for proposals: FRIDAY 29 JUNE 2018 (midnight BST)



Dear All,

Just a reminder that that  CfP for MeCCSA 2019 is closing this Friday 29 June 2018.

The conference to be held from 9 to 11 January 2019 at the University of Stirling will be the first one in Scotland and will greet delegates in a true spirit of Scotland with social and cultural events (including ceilidh dancing!), visits and exhibitions.

The theme of the MeCCSA 2019 Conference is Continuity & Change – Media, Communications & Politics.  The theme is designed to address the role of traditional and digital media and communications in maintaining continuity and advocating for political change, whilst also speaking to specific anniversaries significant to Scotland, including the 20th anniversary of the Scottish Parliament.

The old expression, “the more things change, the more they remain the same”, is only partly true. Despite substantial and widespread changes in media, society and politics, several aspects and structures remain constant. Change and continuity are ever-present and simultaneous aspects of life and judging the importance of changes and constants helps us to understand our place in contemporary society and history. The conference theme addresses the role of media and communications in long- and short-term continuities and discontinuities as well as interrogates the concept of continuity with change. How are lives, cultures and conditions alike over time and how have they changed? What is the role of media, communications and politics in advocating change or maintaining status quo?

We invite proposals for scholarly papers, themed panels, posters, film screenings and other practice-based contributions, which engage with various social, political, economic, artistic, organisational, individual, collective and technological dimensions of continuity and change in media, communications and politics. Potential topics could include, but are not limited to:



•         Media activism and civic engagement



•         Digital cultures



•         Media, communications and politics in devolved political contexts



•         Documenting political change



•         Media archives and pedagogy



•         Ways of witnessing



•         Crisis and change communications



•         Media representations of marginal groups



•         Ethics, power and responsibility



•         Scottish media and communications industries



•         Academics in the media/mediated academics



•         Cultural histories of film, media and communications in research and education

The conference is the annual presentation of the best work across the whole range of MeCCSA interests, and is also an opportunity to hear about and discuss important topics in both media and HE policy relevant to MeCCSA members.

We welcome papers, panels, film screenings and other practice-based contributions across the full range of interests represented by MeCCSA and its networks, including, but not limited to:



•         Cultural and media policy



•         Film and television studies and practice



•         Radio studies and practice



•         Representation, identity, ideology



•         Social movements



•         Digital games studies



•         Women’s media studies



•         Disability studies within media studies



•         Approaches to media pedagogy



•         Children, young people and media



•         Diasporic and ethnic minority media



•         Political communication



•         Methodological approaches



•         Media practice research and teaching

Confirmed keynote speakers are:



•         Dr Shohini Chaudhuri (University of Essex)



•         Prof Hannu Nieminen (University of Helsinki)



•         Prof Philip Schlesinger (University of Glasgow)



•         Dr Leshu Torchin (University of St Andrews)





Submitting a proposal

Individual abstracts should be up to 250 words. Panel proposals should include a short description and rationale (200 words) together with abstracts for each of the 3-4 papers (150-200 words each including details of the contributor), and the name and contact details of the panel proposer. The panel proposer should co-ordinate the submissions for that panel as a single proposal.

Practice-based work

We actively support the presentation of practice-as-research and have a flexible approach to practice papers and presentations. This may include opportunities to present papers and screenings in the same sessions or as part of a separate screening strand. We also welcome shorter papers in association with short screenings/sharing. We have dedicated presentation spaces to display practice artefacts including screenings, posters and computer-based work. For displaying practice work, please include specific technical data (e.g. duration, format) and a URL pointing to any support material when submitting your abstract.

Deadline for submission: 29 June 2018.

Please submit your proposal via the online submission system: https://www.stir.ac.uk/about/faculties-and-services/arts-humanities/news-events/conferences/meccsa-2019/call-for-papers/
