A call for papers has been issued for the Seminar on the Implications and Influences of New Media Technologies on Journalism. This will be held at the M.O.P. Vaishnav College for Women on February 12, 2016.
Sponsored by the college's School of Communication and Media Studies-Department of Journalism, the Seminar will feature research presentations by the faculty from various academic institutions in India.
Papers to be presented should be based on original, empirical research, or with a heavy focus on review of literature in traditional media and new media.
Expected to be discussed are the following: impacts; news values and credibility issues of both traditional media and new media; the use of social media sources for mainstream news; and new media issues such as emergency journalism and viral news.
The Seminar hopes to enrich the discussion on whether social media is a platform for establishing power, or a platform for resistance.
Since the Seminar will bring together educators, special attention will be given to areas of curriculum development, and innovations in journalism education.
