CfP: Media: Theory and Practice (Skopje)

Second Annual International CCCS Conference 2014
“Media: Theory and Practice”
4‐6 September 2014 – Skopje, Macedonia
Deadline: 1 March 2014

The Centre for Culture and Cultural Studies (CCCS) invites proposals for papers, thematic panels and original media productions for Second Annual International CCCS Conference 2014 ‘Media: Theory and Practice’

The aim of this conference revolves around a foundational impetus to shed greater light on all relevant aspects of media studies, including mass communication, media technology, the visual and the performing arts, TV, radio, WEB and print media, as well as other key components of media studies and mass communication.

We invite proposals based on media theory (particularly critical media studies and cultural studies), and proposals that consider the relationship between media and (popular) culture, politics, arts, new media, as pertinent fields of study.

We welcome submissions that offer original media productions: documentary films, fictionalized or non‐narrative creative expressions. The submitted proposal needs to contain a creative or theoretical explanation of the submitted work. We invite projects by PhD students or submissions by teams of students and instructors (lecturers).

Hence, the Second Annual International CCCS Conference 2014 ‘Media: Theory and Practice’ strives to offer a dialogic space for media theorists and practitioners. Along those lines, we invite media studies’ theorists as well as practitioners to offer proposals through engaging and current ideas, paper topics, workshop presentations and round table discussions.
