CALL FOR ACADEMIC ABSTRACTS
Submission deadline is October 13, 2020
Our theme in 2020 is (again) WHAT’S WORKING
Back by popular demand! Last year, we at Prague Media Point decided we had had enough of all the doom and gloom around the media industry. Instead of looking backward at all the problems that have plagued the media in the internet age, we wanted to highlight initiatives, projects, and individuals that are actively countering those trends -- and succeeding. This solution-oriented approach resonated strongly with conference attendees, and based on their positive feedback, we have decided to adopt the same theme. Once again, we are encouraging submissions of abstracts and sessions that focus on examples in the media that are working and generating impact in the following subjects and topics, though this list is not exhaustive:
Innovative ways to cover climate change
Pandemic media coverage
Media projects to counter polarization and disinformation
Technology & security in editorial work and content delivery
Effective methods for resisting threats to media freedom
Engagement through social media
Solutions and constructive journalism
Different forms of storytelling
Innovative business and ownership models
Diversity in the newsroom
Please submit your 500-word abstracts and a short bio by October 13, 2020.
