Submission for the 8th International Media Readings in Moscow "Mass Media and Communications"
On Nivember 17-18, 2016 the Faculty of Journalism will organize the 8th International Media Readings in Moscow "Mass Media and Communications". The deadline for submission is September 10, 2016. Hurry up to join the event!
The conference aims to discuss current transformations of media systems across the world, identify factors, which may lead to these transformations, outline possible outcomes of this ‘homogenization’ trend for national cultures and identities, and to discuss best ways to classify media systems in the current context, relying on fundamental works of Siebert, Peterson & Schramm (1956), McQuail (2000), Hallin & Mancini (2004) and other scholars. The general aim of the Moscow Readings conference is to consolidate contacts between researchers from different countries of the world, and to foster integration of representatives of the Russian school of journalism into the global academic space.
Today media systems of different countries tend to acquire similar features due to a variety of reasons, including the processes of globalization and the change in national media cultures, encompassing professional values and traditions, level and type of commercialization, government regulations, organizational dynamics, technologies, audiences, etc. Although many countries in the world still retain their national specifics determined by their unique social, cultural and political landscapes, we cannot but notice that this specifics is oftentimes replaced by the tendencies of the global character, which have significant influence on media systems of these countries. These tendencies include but are by no means limited to the active use of new digital technologies and social media by journalists; an attempt of media outlets to reach out to a broader audience instead of focusing on particular political or social groupings; the spread of user generated content and the subsequent re-consideration of professional journalists’ mission; a shift to common business models and common media platforms, which is particularly acute for traditional print media creating online versions today, and much more.
