NordMedia 2019

Communication, Creativity & Imagination

Malmö 21-23 August 2019 

In an increasingly interconnected and accelerated world, our academic field offers significant opportunities to grapple with shifting and often contentious media and communication landscapes. With these opportunities comes a charge for responsible research and reporting of results, as scholars make their work public through their teaching, publishing, and engagement in the world beyond the academy. Are we living up to this charge? Do our current approaches work? How might we work both responsibly and creatively?
While global social and technological changes put new demands on academia, how we imagine “our field” is also perpetually in flux, as represented by the many ‘turns’ and ‘returns’ endemic to media and communication studies, as well as related fields. Part of this re-imagining also results from organizations’ merging traditionally different subjects into single departments in the name of efficiency. In many cases, these new departments represent rich meeting places for innovative, interdisciplinary research.
At NordMedia 2019 in Malmö, Sweden, we look forward to addressing our field’s past and current trends, and to envisioning new avenues for creation and collaboration. Examining media and communication studies at the nexus of global shifts affecting and reflected in academia, we aim to track and respond to recent challenges from both outside and within our field, in order to better understand, and reimagine, the ‘state of the art’.
