CfA: Media Education Summit 2021

International Media Education Summit

Virtual: March 31st & April 1st 2021

Conference Theme: Media Education, Diversity and Voice

Each year the Media Education Summit brings together a global network of researchers, educators and practitioners working across all aspects of media education, media and digital literacy and media / technology in education. The event is the leading global showcase for research, pedagogy and innovation on all aspects of media education. Now running for thirteen years, MES is convened by the UK’s Centre for Excellence in Media Practice, in collaboration with a leading organisation in a different country each year. In 2021, however, the summit will be virtual and will be run in conjunction with the School of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds.
Presenters will be also invited to submit their work to the Media Education Research Journal and Media Practice and Education. A panel will be convened by Internet Policy Review, on the theme of digital literacy.

About the theme

Media organisations are engaging in reflection about what it means to be diverse. What does it mean to give people from different communities an effective voice in the 21st century media? This has theoretical and methodological implications media education: where are diversity and voice to be located in terms of our study of producers, texts and audiences? Responding to these questions invites interdisciplinary, self-reflexive and practice-based research.
The organisers are particularly interested in presentations on these topics:

  • Defining, measuring, and evaluating diversity
  • Performativity and pedagogy
  • Inclusion, access and agency
  • National and institutional policy initiatives
  • Meeting diverse educational needs
  • Diversity and voice in practice

Acceptance is on fully peer-reviewed abstracts only – there is NO requirement to submit a full paper. Submit your abstract by email to mes@bournemouth.ac.uk by 12-Dec-2020. Please contact mes@cemp.ac.uk with any enquiries about the summit.
