The call for papers for ECREA’s forthcoming “European Communication Conference” 2016 is out. The conference will take place from November 9-12, 2016, in Prague.
Our section invites a broad range of paper proposals:
The Communication Law and Policy section provides a forum for the debate and analysis of past and current national and EU legal, regulatory and policy directions in the field of European media and communication. The field is interpreted broadly to include political, social, cultural, anthropological and economic questions. The section invites contributions (proposals for papers, posters or panels) in any area of (broadly understood) European media and communication law, regulation and policy, including historical, comparative and philosophical approaches to this domain. We welcome critical methodologies and analyses, as well as discussions on new ways of thinking about policy and law in the media, communication and cultural industries. We also welcome empirical studies of policy or the policy making process as well as evidence aimed at contributing to debates on current policy issues, especially those that use interdisciplinary approaches and push the boundaries of established work.
You may submit proposals for individual papers, panels, and posters. The maximum length of individual abstracts is 500 words. Panel proposals combine a panel rationale with five panel paper abstracts, each of which shall be a maximum length of 500 words.
Proposals can be submitted on the conference website http://www.ecrea2016prague.eu until the end of February. The website also provides all the relevant information (registration, accommodation, etc.).
