ICA Regional hub Russia 2022! And a mini-conference on cumulaitve deliberation + interviews with CMSTW guests of 2020-2022!

Dear colleagues,
This year, just like in 2021, CIMRES (the Center that organizes CMSTW) hosts the ICA Regional hub Russia. We offer a mini-conference on cumulative deliberation - a new concept suggested in 2021 and explored by CIMRES.
Moreover, to keep the hub's function of a gateway to ICA for the post-Soviet scholars, we will do interviews with our ICA-supported keynote speakers of 2020-2022, including the great Silvio Waisbord, Claudia Mellado, and Ingrid Volkmer!
Please see the tentative schedule here. Do not miss the event!

Dear colleagues,

Due to the still-incredible circumstances, and with heavy heart, my fellows and I have decided to postpone the CMSTW'2022 conference to autumn 2022, with the hope to be able to talk in half a year. The topic selected for the jubilee conference is solidarity - how painfully timely it is, and we want to keep it till the moment when we can speak of it without losing our breath.

All the extant submissions will be kept in the Easychair system, and all the updates will be on cmstw2022.org. Please stay in touch, and please keep the academic dialogue on all platforms, in cluding ours

The 10th International conference 'Comparative Media Studies in Today's World' (CMSTW'2022) is dedicated to analysing world's communication and journalism in comparative perspective. The theme for 2022 is 'Mediated Inequalities and Solidarities'; it is expected to bring together a wide range of scholars in social sciences, communications, computational disciplines, and humanities. The theme is our response to the growing borders, tensions, uncertainties, and inequalities in the pandemic-hit world, and we hope to create a strong message on solidarity and equal rights, both in mediated milieus and beyond.

Since 2013, the conference has gathered experts in comparative media research, including Paolo Mancini, Larry Gross, Silvio Waisbord, Barbie Zelizer, Noshir Contractor, Katrin Voltmer, Barbara Pfetsch, Nico Carpentier, Zizi Papacharissi, Mark Deuze, Susanne Fengler, Oscar Westlund, Elena Vartanova, Thomas Hanitzsch, Daya Thussu, Zizi Papacharissi, Thorsten Quandt, Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, Claudia Mellado, and many others.

The conference is part of the 'Media in Modern World' Annual Forum which will be held by St. Petersburg State University for the 61th time on April 21-22, 2022. All the CMSTW guests will have full access to the Forum events.

A variety of publishing opportunities, including that in a Scopus Q2 journal, is offered at the conference. The submission guidelines may be found in the respective pages of this website after February 15, 2022.
