CALL FOR PAPERS
Research Network On Mass Media And Communications will have a full
programme for the 2003 ESA Conference.
Our programme will, as usual, be eclectic, and we will not be
seeking to restrict presentations either to the main conference theme or
to specific topics. We invite
papers from any scholar interested in sociological approaches to
understanding the mass media and communications.
We are especially interested in papers that address European themes
and issues, but broader discussions on global or theoretical matters are
also very welcome.
is our intention to afford the maximum time available for discussion,
rather than use all our time for truncated presentations and rushed
debate. For that reason we
will as far as possible try to circulate papers in advance electronically.
Papers need not be fully developed or full length.
Work in progress, preliminary drafts, think pieces and so on are
all extremely welcome. The Programme will be constructed once proposals
have been received rather than to a pre-arranged agenda.
The Programme Committee comprises the Network officers – Peter
Golding (Loughborough), Peter Ludes (Bremen), and Rossella Savarese (Naples).
send papers proposals in the form of an abstract of about 250 words to the
include title, name(s) of authors, institutions of authors and contact
address with telephone, fax and hopefully email address. Please also state
the network title.
main language of the working group is English, and abstracts should be
submitted in English. If you wish to present in Spanish please add a note
explaining that you would like to do so.
closing date for abstracts is: 28.2. 2003
