Conference Rationale
While communication technologies continue to progress and develop, societal and political forces are also influencing the changes and increasing challenges in the field of media and mass communication. Even as marketing and media producers have gained direct access to their consumers, politicians and their machinery have also invaded the public sphere bypassing traditional mass media.
The proposed theme of the 2018 conference seeks to initiate a discourse on the paradoxes brought about by these challenges to mass media and communication as a result of the emerging social media and the changing socio-political economy of media institutions.
The ACMC Conference 2018 is pleased to invite papers addressing the conference theme.Conference streams include but are not limited to:
- Globalization of the News Media
- Public relations in the Digital Era
- Hashtag journalism and other alternative forms
- Mainstream and Alternative Media
- Commercialization of Communication
- New Paradigms in Communication Education
- Gender and Diversity
- The New Gatekeepers
- Open Government Data
- Social media potentials and pitfalls
- Communicating Youth
- Mobile networked communities
