Doing global media studies: Comparative methods of transcultural and
transnational research

Pre-conference to the ECREA 2010 -- 3rd European Communication Conference
Bremen, Germany, 11-12 October 2010, Haus der Wissenschaft

Held by: NIIK, Network Intercultural and International Communication
Organization: Michael Brüggemann, Andreas Hepp, Katharina Kleinen-von Königslow

Keynote speakers:
- Sonia Livingstone (LSE, UK)
- Tristan Mattelart (University of Paris 8, France)

'Global media studies' are an approach of media research which reflects the
increasing phenomenon of transcultural and transnational communication: If we
consider news or entertainment formats, the internet or mobile  communication,
mainstream or minority media -- public and private communication  increasingly
transcends national and cultural borders. But how can we respond to this
methodologically? Which innovative methods are necessary for media and
communication research in a globalized media world? What kinds of empirical
research are required for "doing" global media studies?

This conference tackles the methodological challenges facing comparative media
research in a global age, reflecting critically the present status of
transcultural and transnational communication. We would like to invite
presentations dealing with the methodological consequences of research going
beyond 'national containers'. Proposals may address challenges with regard to
the overall research design, methodological innovations, or deal more
specifically with methodological issues concerning the selection of cases as
well as the gathering and analysis of data. Quantitative, qualitative and mixed
methodological approaches are all very welcome.

The pre-conference will feature the presentations of peer-reviewed submitted
papers as well as distinguished key-note speakers in the field of global media
studies. It will also comprise workshop elements for a hands-on discussion of
the practical issues that arise from research projects which go beyond cultural

Deadline: All abstracts should be submitted through the ECREA 2010 website no
later than:
         28 February 2010.

To avoid technical problems, early submission is strongly encouraged.
