ECC 2022 Aarhus
As you know, the next European Communication Conference will take place in Aarhus/Denmark on October 19-22, 2022. No, you haven’t missed the deadline. It’s 17 February 2022.
Our section invites a broad range of proposals: individual papers, panel sessions, and posters. For details and the submission point see the conference website https://conferences.au.dk/ecrea2022/.
CLP Online Events
The CLP section will organize three two-hours long thematically focused discussions in the week leading up to ECC Aarhus.
- Tuesday, 11 October 14:00-16:00 CET Regulation of content: risks of harms from online content; ensuring freedom of expression and media diversity online
- Wednesday, 12 October 14:00-16:00 CET The future of the public interest: prioritization and prominence; cultural and political aims, and public service media
- Thursday, 13 October 14:00-16:00 CET Standards vs Abusers: new developments in governance; the interaction between standardization and illiberalism; threats to media freedom
After opening comments by invited speakers from both media and communication policymaking and policy research, five section members will present insights from their research or their cutting-edge ideas in 4 minutes long elevator pitches to facilitate discussion.
Interested in delivering one of these short pitches? Please send your 300 words abstract to the section chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 13, 2022, indicating for which of the three online events your input is intended. Two slots per session will be ringfenced for early career researchers, pending sufficient applications.
Participation will be free and open to all CLP members. So mark your calendars now! More information will be shared closer to the events.
CLP Best Student Paper Award
After a short break, the CLP section is bringing back its best student paper award. All students whose abstract is accepted for the ECC conference and wish to be considered, will have to submit a full paper by September 18, 2022.
The award committee is made up of Marko Milosavljević (University of Ljubljana, chair of the committee), Natascha Just (University of Zurich) and Tim Raats (Vrije Universiteit Brussel).
For more details, please download the ECREA-CLP Best Student Paper Award information.
ECREA-CLP has a new section management team. In an online election in late November 2021, Sally Broughton Micova (University of East Anglia) was elected as chair; Hilde Van den Bulck (Drexel University) and Manuel Puppis (University of Fribourg) were elected as vice chairs. Sally served as a vice chair from 2012-2018 and welcomed the opportunity to run for chair now. Hilde and Manuel both served as section chairs and vice chairs in the past and volunteered to step back into leadership until the 2022 Aarhus conference, to enable a smooth start for the next management team.
And, last but not least, our section has a new YECREA representative: Marina Rossato Fernandes, PhD student at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, applied for the position and we are very excited to have her aboard. Welcome Marina! She will serve as an important liaison between YECREA, the CLP section and our early career members.
And, as a reminder, if you are not a CLP section member, it’s easy to join. So please do so now!
