ECREA members become members of Sections, Networks and Temporary Working groups, depending on the area of their research interests. Each Section, Network and Temporary Working Group elects their Chair and two Vice-Chairs who coordinate section’s academic activities. Sections are focused on specific themes, which represent traditional or newly sedimenting scholarly interests across communication and media studies. New Sections are regularly added to the list to reflect the most up-to-date dynamics in the field by promoting successful Temporary Working Groups to the status of a section. ECREA Networks promote diversity, plurality and emancipation by providing opportunities to the scholars who may be underprivileged due to their age, gender or regional background.
