Rethinking borders and boundaries: Beyond the global/local dichotomy in communication studies

Nairobi, Kenya and wherever you are, 11-15 July 2021

IAMCR 2021 plenary sessions will feature an outstanding selection of speakers and topics. All interested members of the media and communication research community are invited to enjoy the plenaries.

We have compiled the abstracts accepted for presentation in the Online Conference Papers component of the 2021 annual conference.

IAMCR's 2021 online conference offers several ways to participate - as an author, a member of a section or working group, a member of IAMCR... Participation is free of charge for all IAMCR members.

Each of IAMCR's 33 thematic sections and working groups, from the Audience Section to the Visual Culture Working Group, has issued its own call for proposals. This article has links to all of them.

IAMCR will make several awards and grants available to its members in 2021: the UCF/IAMCR Urban Communication Research Grant, the IAMCR 2021 award in memory of Stuart Hall, the UNICEF/IAMCR Communication for Development Research Fund, and the Climate Communication Research Award.

To stimulate the use of a broader range of modes for the communication of academic knowledge, IAMCR calls for academic audio and/or visual work to be presented at IAMCR 2021. In particular, we seek podcasts and videos that integrate academic and aesthetic dimensions, and that use sound and/or image creatively to communicate academic knowledge.
