The IAMCR 2023 conference theme Inhabiting the planet: Challenges for media, communication and beyond address the fundamental questions such as: What does it mean to be human in a digital world? What does it mean to build a common future? IAMCR 2023 seeks to provide a forum where the international community of media and communication scholars and researchers can reflect on and debate challenges related to five interconnected topics: Humanity and progress, Democracy, Media, information and communication, Cities and territories, Environmental accountability.
ECREA will host one panel at IAMCR 2023 and invites the submission of panel proposals that are focused on timely and innovative topics and are diverse in terms of methodologies, theoretical standpoints and/or nationalities of the presenters. We especially encourage panel proposals which include a European perspective and a comparative research focus. This call for panel proposals is open to ECREA members of all ECREA sections and to all topics.
Please note the following information:
Panel submissions. Panels provide a good forum for the discussion of new approaches, ongoing developments, innovative ideas, and debates in the field. If you plan to submit a panel, please submit the following details: (a) Panel theme or title, (b) a 75-word description of the panel for the conference program, (c) a 400-word rationale, providing justification for the panel and the participating panelists, (d) 300-word (max) abstract of each paper, (e) names of panel participants (usually 4-5 presenters, plus an optional designated respondent), and (f) name of panel chair/organizer. In terms of diversity, we expect a strong panel proposal to (a) include contributions of at least two different countries, (b) feature gender balance, and, ideally, (c) include not more than one contribution from a single faculty, department or school. Panel proposals need to be original and may not have been submitted to IAMCR before or at the same time. The format of the panel can be in person or virtual. Accepted panel presentations do not count towards the max. allowed individual paper presentations at the IAMCR conference.
Registering panelists. All panelists must be ECREA members by the time the conference takes place and agree in advance of submission to participate as panel presenters and to register for the IAMCR conference. IAMCR only provides a registration waiver for the panel convener, not for the other panelists.
