Keynote speaker announcement

We are very pleased to announce that Professor Irene Costera Meijer from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will be keynote speaker at the conference.

We are certain that she will offer plenty of food for thought related to the conference theme ‘Changing audiences, changing journalism’, based on her work on changing news use and journalism innovation.  More information about Irene Costera Meijer and her work can be found here.

Needless to say, we hope you will consider applying for the ECREA Journalism Studies Section Conference. From our experience, the smaller size Section Conference offers a good opportunity to get to know new colleagues and to discuss your work.

Besides papers focusing specifically on the role of the audience in journalism, we invite papers which study cultural, political, economic, social and professional aspects of journalism and news work in a broad sense. Deadline for submission is 10 October.
