If you are interested in translating one of the Key Concepts, please contact me for approval first because dozens are currently in process. As always, if there is a concept you think should be written up as one of the Key Concepts, whether in English or any other language, propose it. If you are new to CID, please provide a brief resume. This opportunity is open to masters students and above, on the assumption that some familiarity with academic conventions generally, and discussion of intercultural dialogue specifically, are useful.

CFP Future of Media & Communication Research (China)

ConferencesFuture of Media and Communication Research: Media Ecology and Big Data, 2017 International Conference
November 19-21, 2017, Fuxuan Hotel, Fudan University – Shanghai,  P. R. China

Deadline: June 19, 2017

Organized jointly by Fudan Information and Communication Research Center & Fudan Journalism School, Fudan University, China
and the Institute for International Journalism (IIJ) in the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism, Ohio University, USA

The international conference on Future of Media and Communication Research: Media Ecology and Big Data welcomes abstracts that deal with original quantitative or qualitative research related to any sub-themes listed under the Submissions page. The abstracts that are submitted to the conference will be blind reviewed by a panel of scholars put together by the scientific research committee from Fudan University, China and Ohio University, USA.

The official language of presentations at the conference is primarily English.

In the age of new technology and big data, the media landscape in China and around the world is changing rapidly with the rise of social media and digital media. The media ecology brings various new topics for the media industry, academics and scholars. Areas being explored at all institutional/organizational sectors of media include—but not limited to—media convergence, the use of big data, and audience engagement. This program will be of interest to academics, industry and other interested stakeholders who are working with digital technology, media or mass communication to ideate and present new approaches to addressing or exploring these important topics. Also, developing an updated curriculum with social/digital media literary and big data analytics is becoming an interesting topic in communication education.

We welcome research papers on seven sub-themes to discuss new media and big data: new communication research paradigm; media industry change; news production and data journalism; media use and engagement; computational social science and communication research; health communication; and big data and communication education. We are looking forward to receiving abstracts for potential vibrant research presentations at this international conference and to welcoming you in Shanghai, China.

(NOTE: this was originally published in 2014, but revised in 2019 – the revised PDF is what is now available.)

The Center for Intercultural Dialogue publishes a series of short briefs describing Key Concepts in intercultural Dialogue. Different people, working in different countries and disciplines, use different vocabulary to describe their interests, yet these terms overlap. Our goal is to provide some of the assumptions and history attached to each concept for those unfamiliar with it. As there are other concepts you would like to see included, send an email to the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz. If there are concepts you would like to prepare, provide a brief explanation of why you think the concept is central to the study of intercultural dialogue, and why you are the obvious person to write up that concept.
