We invite submissions for a symposium on assessing recent developments in the fields of audience activity, platform and content use, and user content making in the public service media framework.
The scale and significance of the understanding of the new public service content use is still contested, evidences are often sporadic, case studies are still often isolated. Fundamental questions are still abound: Is the public ready to fulfill roles outlined by the new participatory content use culture? Are public service media companies, and professionals consider seriously shifting to a radically more demand-oriented mood in the daily practice? How would the populist feature of „from below“ user activity change political discourses and landscapes?
The symposium is open to academics as well as media industry practitioners working in the field.
Location: Canterbury Christ Church University, Department for Media, Art and Design.
The deadline for abstract submission is March 18th, 2012. Authors of selected proposals will be notified by March 30th, 2012. A selected group of the best contributions are planned to be published in a scholarly journal.
