Gender and Media Matters – Widening the horizons of the field of study
International Conference at Sapienza University of Rome (online and in-person)15-16 October 2021
The Conference has the objectives of advancing discussion about gender and media studies and exchange among scholars from different countries, providing an overview of the most recent and original studies on gender and the media, and giving prominence to research strands that are not always visible in the international arena.
The conference welcomes paper proposals exploring the gender-media dyad in relation to media production, representations and the public, legacy and digital media, technology affordances and constraints. This includes a variety of viewpoints from across time and space. Particular attention will be given to contributions that focus on emerging trends on the innovation of images, production and consumption of media content, and, more generally, on new or lesser-known dimensions of gender and media studies.
There will be two keynote lectures, three round tables and several parallel panels. The opening lecture will be given by Rosalind Gill (City, University of London). The closing lecture will be a dialogue between Milly Buonanno (Sapienza University of Rome) and Paola Bonifazio (University of Texas at Austin).
