Full CFP & details on our website:
This interdisciplinary conference focuses on the roles of media in creating
a more equitable, inclusive, sustainable, and just society. The goal is to
bring scholars, media practitioners, educators, and/or activists together
in one space so that we can all learn from and about each other’s research,
creative projects, tools, and strategies.
We are seeking submissions in 3 categories: paper presentations, workshops,
and creative exhibitions. See website for submission details.
Anyone whose work focuses on the intersections of media and justice is
invited to apply; we are particularly interested in research, creative
projects, pedagogy, and activism with a specific local or regional focus.
We are also interested in collaborative and community-based research or
creative projects; we encourage workshops and panels that include diverse
populations including students, youth, and community leaders.
We are conceptualizing both media and justice in the broadest senses of
We are open to media forms and practices that include, but are not limited
film, TV, podcasts or radio programs, digital and social media,
webisodes, advertising and PR campaigns, mediated performances, augmented
reality, video games, photography, zines, etc.
Because we are interested in changes on multiple levels and in various
sectors, we are conceptualizing justice to include issues such as, but not
intersectional social justice (e.g. gender, ethnicity, sexuality,
religion, ability), environmental justice, youth justice, criminal justice,
immigration justice, media industry practices, representational inclusivity
and equity, etc.
