Available program of the VII Doctoral Conference in Communication and Cultural Studies

The VII Doctoral Conference in Communication and Cultural Studies, organized by the Communication and Society Research Centre (CECS), will take place on October 14 and 15, 2019, at the ICS.

The 7th Doctoral Conference calls doctoral and postdoctoral students in Communication and Cultural Studies to share experiences, questions, advances or results related to their projects.

We give preference to communications addressing the formulation and discussion of theoretical issues and to the design of methodologies. The communication proposals should be articulated with the research areas developed in the CECS, namely:

• Media and Journalism: transformations in the digital environment; reconfiguration of the communication ecology; citizenship and democratic participation;
• Cultural Studies: technoscience, representations, discourses, visuals, cultures and aesthetic expressions; lusophony, environment, gender, science communication;
• Communication, Organizations and Social Dynamics: strategic communication; reflective societies; social inclusion; societal challenges.

The Doctoral Conference aims to give visibility and strengthen the research work developed in the fields of Communication Sciences and Cultural Studies, to provide spaces for dialogue and debate, to enable the exchange of experiences and constructive critical evaluation. It is open to the participation of all and invites, in particular, the academic community linked to the fields of Communication and Cultural Studies.

In addition, the students, who are expected to participate actively and constructively, will contribute to the debate and critical scrutiny researchers and researchers of the CECS with work developed in the proposed themes, as well as those responsible for the scientific guidance of doctoral and postdoctoral projects.
