Call for papers - Media Diversity in Theory and Practice

Day Symposium: 

Media Diversity in Theory and Practice 
Thursday February 2, 2012 
Dublin City University
Deadline for abstracts: September 15, 2011

The International Media, Interculturalism and Migration research cluster at DCU, together with the Journalism and Society working group, invites papers for a one-day symposium in February 2012. We are especially interested to hear from those with expertise in the areas of media diversity training and journalism education.

The symposium has two aims: firstly, to critically assess scholarly research to-date on diversity in the media, especially with regard to the experiences of individuals of migrant origin working in mainstream media organisations. Secondly, to examine if and to what extent diversity goals have been written into the recruitment and training policies and codes of ethics of mainstream media organisations. The symposium will conclude with a roundtable discussion involving academic researchers and industry professionals.

This symposium forms part of DCU’s involvement in the MEDIVA project, which seeks to strengthen the capacity of media to reflect the increasing diversity of European societies and to foster better understandings of immigrant integration.
