ECA 2016 Convention: Call for Papers, Media Ecology Association Affiliate

ECA’s Media Ecology Association Affiliate invites submissions for the 107th Annual ECA Convention. We invite competitive papers, thematic panels, roundtables, etc., relevant to the field of media ecology. Of particular interest would be papers and sessions related to the theme of the MEA’s annual meeting, to be held in Bologna, Italy, on June 23-26, 2016, hosted by the University of Bologna (“Interfaces of Play and Game: Engaging Media Ecosystems”). For more information on media ecology and the MEA, see <http://www.media-ecology.org/>.

We are also interested in submissions based on the ECA convention theme, which is [R]evolution.  Media ecology scholarship has long been interested in the various revolutions associated with the introduction of new communication technologies, from the first writing systems, the alphabet, and the printing press, to the communications revolution of the 19th century, and and the social and cultural revolutions related to the electronic media, television, computers, the internet, web, social media, and mobile technology. At the same time, we recognize the process of media evolution, and the continuity that exists from orality to literacy to electricity and digitality. We welcome submissions from students, junior and senior scholars alike, and we encourage co-sponsored submissions that promote interdisciplinary collaboration.

All submissions, which should fall into one of the two categories listed below, must be received by 11:59 PDT October 15, 2015 in order to be considered.

I. Competitive Papers

a. Please label all debut papers with the phrase “DEBUT PAPER” in the upper right-hand corner of the title page. To qualify as a debut paper, the author or co-authors must not have presented a paper at a state, regional, national or international convention. All authors of a co-authored paper must meet these eligibility requirements for a paper to be considered a Debut Paper.

A. Panel, roundtable, and innovative presentation proposals should focus on some unifying theme or concept relevant to research, theory, or instruction related to the field of media ecology.

2. We request that any person serving as chair and/or respondent not be a participant in the panel or roundtable.

3. Innovative program proposals, especially those that provide opportunities for engaged interaction among participants and attendees, are encouraged.

4. Programs co-sponsored with other interest groups are also welcome. Programs that relate to the convention theme, [R]evolution, are encouraged.

5. The panel organizer is expected to take responsibility for communication with the Interest Chair, alert her to any changes or problems and to ensure that panelists register for the conference and deliver their papers.

1. Thematic title of the panel/roundtable.
