Crowded out or limitless horizons? Minority language-media in the digital age
Papers should be submitted by Tuesday 30th April
The international conference “Crowded out or limitless horizons? Minority language-media in the digital age” aims to exchange knowledge and promote collaboration between academics and professionals working on minority-language media. It is co-organised by the Basque Institute Etxepare and the University of Edinburgh, on the 18th-19th of October.
In the early 1980s, the establishment of Catalan, Basque and Welsh TV channels motivated several European scholars to investigate key concepts concerning minority language media and undertake important case studies. In 1992, the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages emphasised that public authorities have important responsibilities in this field.
In the last two decades, the introduction of digitalisation and the Internet have developed a global world where the impacts, challenges and opportunities for minority language media have become increasingly complex. Despite these transformations, there has been little focused discussion and debate on the relationship between the digital and minority-language media.
Call for papers
The organisers invite individual papers, pre-constituted panels or posters that engage with research and case studies on any of the following topics:
- Communication and cultural policies
- Media economics and the digital age
- TV channels and online video platforms
- Audience, genres and content analysis
- Programming strategies and content commissioning
- Production conditions and distribution opportunities
- Commercialisation of programmes
- Media education and language use
- Nation, language and identity
- Media and gender perspectives
Abstracts should not be longer than 250 words and should be submitted by email by Tuesday 30th April to the conference organisers.
Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for questions. Panels will be 90 minutes long, with three papers of 20 minutes and 10 minutes for questions.
Registration information will be provided by the end of April.
