Call for papers, Interdisciplinary PhD Communication Conference (IPCC), Conference theme: Collaborations, Istanbul Bilgi University, Istanbul, Turkey, 7-8 May 2021 (Online). Deadline: 1 March 2021.
The 2021 edition of IPCC – Interdisciplinary PhD Communication Conference, realised by a group of young scholars within the PhD in Communication Program at Istanbul Bilgi University, will be held online on 7-8 May 2021 under the theme “Collaborations“. Participants will be expected to provide 15-minute presentations, followed by roundtable discussions, which encourage further inquiry into the related topics of discussion, with the audience and fellow presenters. In line with the mission of the PhD in Communication Program of Istanbul Bilgi University, IPCC prioritises solidarity. Thus, the conference promotes a platform for the co-creation of knowledge, facilitated by free-form discussion sessions.
All PhD students or candidates, as well as early career researchers with PhDs earned in the last 5 years, who are interested in examining, expressing and exploring the current and possible implications of collaborations within their field of interest, are welcome to submit their proposal and join the discussion. Contributions may include but are not limited to the topics provided.
How are we attentive to collaborations? In a time marked by biological, political, social and economic crises, the IPCC shifts its focus towards practices of solidarity, of labouring together and building new communities within the scope of communication and beyond.
