Deadline for Abstracts: 15 June 2012

The Media, Communications and Cultural Studies Association Postgraduate Network (MeCCSA-PGN) invites submission of abstracts for its annual postgraduate conference. 

MeCCSA is the subject association for the field of media, communication and cultural studies in UK Higher Education. The field includes film and TV production, journalism, radio, photography, creative writing, publishing, interactive media and the web. It includes higher education for media practice as well as for media studies. 

This interdisciplinary conference, sponsored by the ADM-HEA (Art Design and Media Subject Centre) and supported by the Loughborough University Graduate School, gives an opportunity to Masters and PhD students, as well as early stage postdoctoral researchers, to share their work on any topic related to the areas mentioned above. Submissions from within other disciplines in the humanities and the social sciences that engage with media, communication or cultural practices are also welcome.
In addition to panel presentations, the conference will include keynotes from prominent scholars in the field, as well as academic workshops. The organisers are happy to announce that Prof. Liesbet van Zoonen and Prof. David Buckingham have provisionally confirmed their participation in the event as keynote speakers.
