ECREA conference

Intellect will be attending the ECREA conference in Barcelona 25th-28th November 2008. The 2nd European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA) Conference aims to bring together specialists studying the role of communications and media in society, with a special emphasis on European challenges. The conference will deal with a broad range of topics, from philosophy, history, the economics of communication and innovations in reception studies to research into the relationship between media and society, such as its impact on democracy, migrations, sustainable development, identities and cultural diversity.

The main focus of the conference, Communication Policies and Culture in Europe, is one of great importance. By focusing on this theme, the conference aims to contribute to questions surrounding the development of communication policies (regulation, impulse, etc) for European culture in the face of the new globalisation challenges.

In addition, the local committee will seek to address a range of topics of general interest in Europe by inviting contributions of Spanish academics. This will include matters of education and communication, local media and communication, and academic collaboration between Europe and Latin America.

As well as meeting with authors, editors and academics in the field, Intellect will be promoting media and culture titles at the conference. Especially relevant will be Intellect's ECREA Series including the recently published, Finding the Right Place on the Map: Central and Eastern European Media Change in a Global Perspective edited by Karol Jakubowicz and Miklós Sükösd and the forthcoming Press Freedom and Pluralism in Europe Concepts and Conditions edited by Andrea Czepek, Melanie Hellwig and Eva Nowak.
