Dear All,

Apologies for cross posting.

International Conference

*Media Industries*

16-19 April 2024

Hosted by the Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries, King’s
College London

Paper, panel, and roundtable proposals are invited for the 2024 ‘Media
Industries’ conference (‘MI2024’).

‘MI2024’ provides a meeting ground for all forms of media industries
research, maintaining an open intellectual agenda by inviting papers,
panels or roundtables exploring the full breadth of media industries in
contemporary, historical and global contexts, and from all traditions of
media industries scholarship.

After the success in 2018 of the inaugural conference ‘Media Industries:
Current Debates and Future Directions’, unfortunately the planned 2020
conference had to be cancelled due to Covid. We are therefore very pleased
to announce the return of the conference next year.

Submissions (see below) are welcomed in three categories (see full details

·    open call papers

·    pre-constituted panels

·    pre-constituted roundtables

*PLEASE NOTE*: MI2024 will take place in-person only.


A core aim of the ‘Media Industries’ conference is to bring together
scholars researching media industries from across multiple professional
associations and their relevant sub-groups or sections. We are therefore
very pleased to be organizing ‘MI2024’ in partnership with:

All delegates will need to register for the conference.

Registration for the conference will go live in November 2023.

Fees will be structured on the basis of full (academics, waged) and reduced
(students, unwaged) status, and tiered according to the delegate’s country
of residence using the World Bank’s country classifications by Gross
National Income per capita.


Deadline for submissions is *23.00hrs Pacific Daylight Time (PDT = UTC -7)
on Friday 15 September 2023*

Proposals are welcomed in three categories and should be submitted through
the following links.

1)  Open Call Papers

Format: solo or co-presented research paper lasting no more than 20mins.


2)  Pre-constituted Panels

      Format: 90mins panel of 3 x 20mins OR 4 x 15mins thematically linked
solo or co-

      presented research papers followed by questions.


3)  Pre-constituted Roundtables

Format: 90mins interactive forum led by a chair bringing together 4 to 6
participants (including the chair as a participant if speaking as well as
chairing) to offer short (up to 6 minute) position statements or
interventions designed to trigger discussions around a central theme,
issue, or problem. As such, a roundtable does not involve the presentation
of formal research papers but rather is designed to create a forum for the
participants and audience to engage in a shared discussion. The format is
flexible and can be adapted to allow members of the roundtable to introduce
exercises or other activities where appropriate.


Delegates can make TWO contributions to the conference but only ONE in any
category, i.e., presenting an open call paper and participating in a
roundtable will be permitted but presenting two open call papers will not
be. Chairing a panel or roundtable will NOT count as one of those

Papers (either open call or as part of a pre-constituted panel) maybe
presented individually or by a pair of co-presenters.
