The European Conference on Media, Communication and Film (EuroMedia2018)


The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) and the EuroMedia2018 Organising Committee invite you to join us in Brighton, UK for the The European Conference on Media, Communication & Film 2018 (EuroMedia2018). Submit your abstract and join us as a presenter or attend as an audience member at this international, intercultural and interdisciplinary event. See the website for complete details.

***Conference Theme: "Fearful Futures"

We have reached a moment in international history that is one of potential paradigm shift. It is a moment when a problematic, but at least blandly progressivist, pro-multiculturalist movement toward "cosmopolitanism" (as Kwame Anthony Appiah might use the term) is being threatened by a far more destructive and potentially genocidal ethno-nationalism, the ferocity of which is fuelled by economic disparity, religious intolerance and retrograde ideologies regarding gender, race and sexuality. The possible global futures we face are fearful, indeed, and in an era of information and disinformation, fake news, and hysterical polemic, are sometimes made out to be inevitable.

In this context, the arts, humanities, media and cultural studies play an important role in tracing the genealogy of the present moment, documenting it, and charting different paths forward, inviting such questions as how does culture replicate itself (or critically engage itself) in the classroom, in literature, in social media, in film, in the visual and theatrical arts, in the family, and among peer groups? How do we rise to the challenge of articulating a notion of human rights that also respects cultural difference? How do cultural representations of the environment abet or challenge the forces driving climate change? What are the roles and responsibilities of the individual activist as teacher, writer, artist, social scientist and community member? What are the responsibilities of both traditional and non-traditional media? How do we make sense of the ideologies driving hatred and intolerance, and posit different models of social engagement and organisation? Looking to the past, what do we learn about the challenges of today?

This international and interdisciplinary conference will bring together a range of academics, independent researchers, artists and activists to explore the challenges that we face in the twenty-first century. While we have every right to fear the future, we also have agency in creating that future. Can we commit to a cosmopolitanism that celebrates difference and that challenges social inequity? On our ability to answer to that question affirmatively likely hangs our very survival.

The organisers encourage submissions that approach the conference theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

The European Conference on Media, Communication & Film 2018 (EuroMedia2018) will be held alongside The European Conference on Arts & Humanities 2018 (ECAH2018). Registration for either conference will allow delegates to attend sessions in the other.

In conjunction with our Global Partners, including the University of Sussex, Birkbeck, University of London and The Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications at Northwestern University (USA), we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2018.

The Asian Conference on Language Learning 2018 (ACLL2018)



***The Early Bird Submission Deadline is quickly approaching. In order to be eligible for the Early Bird Discount, submit your abstract by December 8, 2017 through the Call for Papers page of the conference website. https://acll.iafor.org/call-for-papers/


Greetings from The Asian Conference on Language Learning (ACLL2018) Organising Committee.

We are very pleased this year to welcome Dr Bonny Norton of the Department of Language and Literacy Education at the University of British Columbia, Canada, to our conversation about how to move forward as international educators in a challenging time. With her career-spanning research interests in globally situated identity(ies) and a transdisciplinary sociocultural approach to what constitutes good language teaching, Dr Norton might well have written our conference theme, "Surviving and Thriving: Education in Times of Change", for us.

We will also feature Dr. Garold Murray of the Centre for Liberal Arts and Language Education at Okayama University and his talk, "Language Learning in a Time of Complexity and Change," in which he suggests we look beyond the in-class/out-of-class divide when viewing learners. Dr. Murray has served as convener of the AILA Research Network on Learner Autonomy in Language Learning (2005-2011) and president of the Japan Association of Self-Access Language Learning (2005-2010).

Presented in the historic port city of Kobe, which has been critical to internationalization of Japan, this IAFOR conference will attract researchers and practitioners from around the world. At this eighth ACLL conference we will continue to provide the international, intercultural, interdisciplinary and intellectual meeting ground that past participants have come to expect. Meet your peers from over 40 countries to exchange experiences, perspectives and expertise on how to help our learners survive and thrive.

This conference, like all previous ACLL conferences, will take an interdisciplinary approach. The major streams addressed include Culture and Language, Psychology of the Learner, Intersectionality, Plurilingualism – Bilingualism, Educational Technologies, Learning Environments, Professional Development, Assessment, Approaches, Applied Linguistics Research, Disabilities and the Language Learner, Educational Policy, Lifelong Learning, and Translation and Interpretation. The stream of Culture and Language Learning has been expanded to include Cross-cultural Communication, Cultural Literacy, Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), Literature and Language Learning, and Linguistic Landscapes. If you have something to share related to Language Learning and Teaching this is the conference for you!

Presenters who submit abstracts by December 8, 2017 will qualify for discounted Early Bird Registration rates, so if you are considering joining us, please send in your abstract early. Kobe, part of the greater Kansai region, is also a convenient base from which to explore Japan and Japanese culture, so if you can, plan your schedule to arrive early or stay after the conference concludes.

We look forward to welcoming you to ACLL2018 in Kobe, Japan.

Best regards,

The ACLL2018 Organising Committee

***Conference Theme: "Surviving and Thriving: Education in Times of Change"

In 2017, IAFOR education conferences in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America have brought together delegates from around the world to consider the theme of "Educating for Change" from a variety of different perspectives and approaches, taking full advantage of the international make-up of the attendees and the huge diversity of experiences. A recurring theme throughout the conferences was the reference to the future, be it immediate or longer term, as being uncertain; the natural resilience and optimism was counterbalanced by both apprehension; with hope also came fear.

In this period of great global political and economic instability, rising inequality and social unrest, the role of education within society has never been more important, but never more vulnerable. This brings us to our conference theme for 2018, which references these inherent vulnerabilities in both educational systems and the individual students and teachers, as well as the necessary resilience needed to not only survive, but also thrive.

How do we teachers, administrators and policymakers adopt and adapt to change outside our control? How do we nurture and encourage positive change, through the excitement of the imagination, innovation and creativity? How can technologies be better used to help us teach, and to help students learn? How do we sustain and manage change? How can we react positively to negative change? How can we, our institutions and our students survive and thrive in these times of change?

***Call for Papers: acll.iafor.org/call-for-papers
The conference theme for ACLL is "Surviving and Thriving: Education in Times of Change", and the organisers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives.

The European Conference on Arts & Humanities (ECAH2018)



Conference Theme - "Fearful Futures"

We have reached a moment in international history that is one of potential paradigm shift. It is a moment when a problematic, but at least blandly progressivist, pro-multiculturalist movement toward "cosmopolitanism" (as Kwame Anthony Appiah might use the term) is being threatened by a far more destructive and potentially genocidal ethno-nationalism, the ferocity of which is fuelled by economic disparity, religious intolerance and retrograde ideologies regarding gender, race and sexuality. The possible global futures we face are fearful, indeed, and in an era of information and disinformation, fake news, and hysterical polemic, are sometimes made out to be inevitable.

In this context, the arts, humanities, media and cultural studies play an important role in tracing the genealogy of the present moment, documenting it, and charting different paths forward, inviting such questions as how does culture replicate itself (or critically engage itself) in the classroom, in literature, in social media, in film, in the visual and theatrical arts, in the family, and among peer groups? How do we rise to the challenge of articulating a notion of human rights that also respects cultural difference? How do cultural representations of the environment abet or challenge the forces driving climate change? What are the roles and responsibilities of the individual activist as teacher, writer, artist, social scientist and community member? What are the responsibilities of both traditional and non-traditional media? How do we make sense of the ideologies driving hatred and intolerance, and posit different models of social engagement and organisation? Looking to the past, what do we learn about the challenges of today?

This international and interdisciplinary conference will bring together a range of academics, independent researchers, artists and activists to explore the challenges that we face in the twenty-first century. In the hackneyed While we have every right to fear the future, we also have agency in creating that future. Can we commit to a cosmopolitanism that celebrates difference and that challenges social inequity? On our ability to answer to that question affirmatively likely hangs our very survival.

The organisers encourage submissions that approach the conference theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives.

The European Conference on Arts & Humanities 2018 (ECAH2018) will be held alongside The European Conference on Media, Communication & Film 2018 (EuroMedia2018). Registration for either conference will allow delegates to attend sessions in the other.

In conjunction with our Global Partners, including the University of Sussex and Birkbeck, University of London, we look forward to extending you a warm welcome in 2018.
