The European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA), the Department of Media and Journalism Studies at Aarhus University (AU) and the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX) are delighted to host the 9th European Communication Conference (ECC) in Aarhus (Denmark), 19 - 22 October 2022.

The conference has the theme 'Rethink Impact'. The organisers call for proposals that contribute to rethinking impact from multiplicity of perspectives represented by ECREA Sections, Networks and Temporary Working Groups.

"CfP of the Gender, Sexuality and Communication Section:

Applying a gender and sexuality lens is essential when 'rethinking impact' in the field of media and communication. Studies on gender, sexuality and media engage with social change in several ways. For example, by focusing on how media construct meanings of gender, challenging intersectional inequalities in media industries, audiences' constructions of gender and sexuality, and what it means to study media from a feminist, queer, postcolonial, and/or disability studies perspective. The Gender, Sexuality and Communication section welcomes contributions that explore different aspects of the relationship between gender, sexuality, and media (in a broad sense). This can involve research on media representation, production and reception. We encourage submissions from diverse geographical contexts and approaches that look at the intersection of gender with other identity markers. In recent years, there has been a growing pattern of attacks aimed at delegitimizing gender, sexuality and media research, silencing scholars and dismantling critical knowledge. The ECC conference is an opportunity to exchange ideas on these troubling shifts. Therefore, we are also interested in contributions that discuss the impact of these challenges on how we teach, build communities and support structures in gender, sexuality and media studies."

Submission and deadline:

Proposals for individual papers, panels, and posters can be submitted through the ECREA 2022 submission platform until 17 January 2022.
