Towards development of mediatization research IV

Towards development of mediatization research IV

On 16th November the Institute of Social Communication and Media Science, Maria Skłodowska-Curie University in Lublin, Poland and Academia Europaea Wrocław Knowledge Hub are going to conduct the closed workshop Towards development of mediatization research IV, which is already a fourth event in the cycle of workshops on mediatization.

The online meeting will take place on 16 November 2020 and it will be led by Professor Mark Deuze of the Department of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam.

The title of this year’s edition is:

Mediatization of everyday life: Media and love – transformation of emotions and relationships.

We have invited mediatization researchers who wished to discuss their own research projects in a narrow and closed group of media scholars under the guidance of an expert. The aim of such exchange is to answer questions like:

• how love and romantic relationships are transformed in and though media
• how people really love their media (devices, platforms, content, and mediated activities and arrangements)
• how media participate in the process of creating simultaneous real and fictional relationships
• how our emotional life transforms under conditions of mediatization
• how the theory of mediatization can develop in the context of the affective/emotional turn in the humanities and social sciences

The idea and format of the meeting are based on a closed specialization workshop devoted to selected aspects of research on mediatization, in a formula proven in the previous editions, i.e.:

• participants work on different types of materials (articles, works in progress, proposals, theses, reports, drafts, documentaries, performances, installations, etc.) under the guidance of the edition leader;
• meeting is preceded by substantive preparation by the leader and all participants on the basis of materials circulated among all participants in advance;
• during the meeting all participants focus on group discussion and expert feedback (presentations and speeches are limited to a minimum);
• seminar is preceded by an introductory lecture by the leader.

There is no conference fee.
