CALL FOR ACADEMIC ABSTRACTS AND SESSION PROPOSALS is OPEN
The life in Czechia is returning back to normal but we made some adjustments in order to minimize any risks related to Covid-19 travel restrictions. As a result of that our early bird registrations have been moved to September, and the cancellation deadline has been moved to November. If you still have some questions about submitting, please do get in touch. In case of persisting travel issues we are getting ready for an online solution.
Our theme in 2020 is (again) WHAT’S WORKING #PragueMediaPoint
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
– Journalism in times of the pandemic
– 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
– Trust-building techniques
– Different forms of storytelling
– Innovative business and ownership models
– Diversity in the newsroom
Join us at the next Prague Media Point – an interdisciplinary conference for journalists, media professionals, scholars, media activists, entrepreneurs and policy-makers.
Please submit your 500-word abstracts and a short bio by June 12, 2020.
