JMP Symposium 2008

We will be attending the fourth
Journal of Media Practice Symposium 2008: ‘Media Practice and its field’
on Friday 20th June 2008 at University of Leeds.

This is supported by MeCCSA Practice section.

Call for registration:

The JMP symposium is now an annual event for all media practitioners teaching or researching in HE and FE. The theme this year is our context – how we interact with our field. This is about how we teach media practice, how researchers and educators relate to professional and conventional practice (and vice versa), and how our practice-based research relates to other research methods and activity. Particularly welcome are postgraduate students, whether as researchers or teachers entering the field.

A sub-theme emerging from submissions this year is how professional norms affect both practice in general and practice as it is researched and taught in HE. Papers on this subject have already been confirmed from documentary producer Paul Kerr (London Metropolitan), documentary producer Florence Ayisi (Newport), PhD student Anna Zoellner (Leeds) and radio producer Rozina Breen (Trinity and All Saints).

Registrations are available from Monday May 12th. Delegate fees are £40 standard rate (£50 for registrations after June 13th). They expect to offer free places for postgraduate students (tbc
shortly). Registration includes lunch and refreshments. To register please complete form available at and send with fee to:
