IAMCR 2020, the association’s first global online conference, launches this Sunday in Tampere, Finland and wherever you are. With 6 plenary sessions, 26 video sessions produced by IAMCR’s sections and working groups, and 680 online papers, there will be lots to read and watch.
The Participatory Communication Research Section (PCR) regularly issues newsletters with information of interest to its members. The June newsletter includes information about the upcoming section heads elections and the IAMCR 2020 online conference. Read it here.
The submission site for Online Conference Papers is now closed. We want to thank all of the authors who submitted a total of 680 papers. The final programme will be published soon.
From the IAMCR June 2020 newsletter: As Covid-19 made its way around the world in the first few months of the year Kaarle Nordenstreng suddenly became a central actor as Tampere University in Finland became the host, first of a face-to-face and then an online conference. What follows is an account from his perspective of how things developed.
The Local and the Digital in Environmental Communication is the latest title in the IAMCR/Palgrave series Global Transformations in Media and Communication Research. The volume interrogates the intertwining of the local and the digital in environmental communication.
Since it won’t be possible to meet up in the usual context this year and exchange information, network, and socialize together, the Mediated Communication, Public Opinion, and Society Section (MPS), decided to provide its members with a newsletter instead. Read it here.
