It is meant to be as inclusive as possible.

This conference welcomes research papers that try to understand the rise of emerging media-technology power from interdisciplinary perspectives, with a special focus on the trans-nationalization process of these media and technology firms and the transcultural communication challenges they have been facing in their business development, expansion, concentration, implementation, legitimization, and related (organizational, institutional, and societal) discourses.

CFP Nordic Migration Research: RE:MIGRATION (Denmark)

ConferencesCall for papers: Nordic Migration Research conference, RE:MIGRATION – New perspectives on movement, research, and society, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, 17-19 August 2022. Deadline: 4 April, 2022.

The term RE: – familiar from the subject lines of email threads – means regarding or in response to, and as such RE:MIGRATION is an invitation to reflect on key questions in migration studies in the current moment as interventions in an ongoing conversation. However, as a prefix, re- also introduces a temporality. It can speak both to a fresh start – rebuilding or reimagining – and to inevitable repetition. It therefore also invites us to consider migration not as singular or exceptional, but as part of the very rhythm of social life across the globe.

CFP ECREA 2022: Rethink Impact (Denmark)

ConferencesCall for papers:  9th European Communication Conference: Rethink Impact, 19-22 October 2022, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark. Deadline: 17 January 2022.

The European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA), the Department of Media and Journalism Studies at Aarhus University (AU) and the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX) are happy to announce that the theme for the 9th European Communication Conference (ECC) will be “Rethink Impact.”

Impact raises fundamental questions on whether – or to what extent – university research and education should directly contribute to social, economic and political demands and be driven by agendas external to the academy. Is it possible to conduct critical research that is publicly funded? Are there models of academic collaboration with society that are not adequately described by current impact assessments? Are funders determining what impact research ought to have? Is there another way of doing impact, as impact ‘from below’, serving the needs of common spaces and grassroots communities? What is the impact of scholars working in the field of communication and external stakeholders, historically and in the present? Why is the long-term contribution of higher education often overlooked in impact discussions? What would an adequate assessment of impact look like in the field of media and communication research, respecting different work cultures, disciplinary orientations and methodologies?

By inviting researchers to ‘rethink impact’ the organisers are wishing to further discussions about both the more traditional ways of thinking about impact as well as some of the more subtle and long-term ways in which researchers and educators in media and communication make a difference contribute to society. Discussions about impact draw on different cultural, social and political histories and ambitions, dealing with contemporary funding and employment structures and incentives, as much as they relate to the place and recognition of scholarship in wider societal and global developments. Rethinking Impact raises fundamental questions about the identity and autonomy of media and communications researchers as an interdisciplinary field of research at the centre of current debates of societal transformation.

Aarhus U Postdoc: Intellectual History of Global Inequality: Argentina (Denmark)

PostdocsOne-Year Postdoc Position: An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015: Argentina, School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark. Deadline: 26 July 2020.

The School of Culture and Society at Aarhus University invites applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in the history of ideas. The position is full-time, and is available from 1 February 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position will be part of the project ‘An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015’.

The project will investigate the historical relationship between location and the intellectual history of inequality. The research objects of this study are concepts, theories and ‘languages’ relating to international economic inequality from 1960 to 2015. The approach is historical-contextualist and combines conceptual and intellectual history, focusing upon contributions to academic and public debates by public intellectuals, especially economists, sociologists, historians and philosophers. Furthermore, the approach is comparative: it will compare the thought of Northern (primarily American), Indian, African (primarily Ghanaian) and South American (primarily Argentinian) public intellectuals. The project is thus divided into four subprojects (with this position focusing on Argentina), each investigating a significant geographical area in the global discourse on economic inequality, enabling us to make new comparisons and trace connections in South-South as well as in North-South exchanges. The project will be an important contribution to the global turn in intellectual and conceptual history. The successful applicant will be responsible for the sub-project on Argentina. The postdoc will study key Argentinian intellectuals and the intellectual history of international and global economic inequality in Argentina.
