Gender and Communication

GENDER AND COMMUNICATION SECTION - CALL FOR PAPERS

ECREA's 2nd EUROPEAN COMMUNICATION CONFERENCE


PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 15th February 2008


The Gender and Communication Section cordially invites all scholars who address issues within the broad theme of ECREA's 2nd international congress - Communication policies and culture in Europe - from a gender perspective to submit proposals. (To visit the conference website and read the general call for papers go to: http://www.ecrea2008barcelona.org/).

The Section Gender and Communication aims to bring together scholars who approach issues within the field of communication with a specific interest in gender. Gender is conceptualized in a broad sense. The section specifically seeks inclusivity in relation to gender studies issues (among which: ethnicity, identity politics, queer studies, gender in media industries, feminist media studies, popular culture studies, post-structural theory, philosophical questions).

We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and innovative studies in all areas of media and communication research (media production, media texts and media use and/or reception) that address the broad theme of the congress. Questions of gender within the field of communication and media can be approached at theoretical, methodological and/or empirical levels (for more information about the Gender and Communication Section visit our website at: http://sections.ecrea.eu/GC/index.htm, or mail to Tonny Krijnen at Krijnen@fhk.eur.nl).

This invitation for proposals is for individual papers and posters as well as for pre-organised panels, from established academics, young scholars, practitioners and postgraduate research students.

Individual paper proposals, individual poster proposals and panel proposals can be submitted at the official conference website (www.ecrea2008barcelona.org).

Notifications of acceptance will be sent out in mid-April 2008, and registration will open after December 1, 2007.

Paper-presenters and panellists will be asked to confirm their intention to attend by registering before October 24, 2008, in order to be able to finalise the conference programme.
