This national summit will provide valuable insights into the opportunities and challenges facing media education both now and in the future. The summit builds on three previous successful meetings, each of which attracted over 150 delegates from 65 Higher Education Institutions. This year the event will be hosted by Ravensbourne.
We are now inviting proposals for papers and panel discussions relating to the conference themes. Please submit a short abstract of up to 600 words, including references.
The best papers from the Media Education Summit 2011 will form part of a special edition of the Media Education Research Journal (MERJ). Therefore, perspective presenters should keep this in mind when submitting proposals for the summit. The summit paper then will be delivered in one form, but in the preparation the work should also be conceived as a potential written piece. Please see submission guidelines on the website for further details. The editors of MERJ will commission submissions for the journal at the summit.
