Call for Papers
Understanding transition
Austerity, communication, and the media

Bucharest, 24th - 25th May 2013

An international conference organised by

The Faculty of Journalism and Communication Studies, University of Bucharest,
together with The Association of Trainers in Journalism and Communication, Romania and
Institut de la Communication, Université Lumière Lyon2, France



Nowadays, austerity seems to be one of the main  concepts defining the public discourse, impacting directly on the organisational activity, the professionals’ practices, as well as our daily private life. Society as a whole depends on austerity measures. The paradigm of austerity – in its real, but also imaginary dimension - becomes a form of reconfiguration of our behaviours and representations.

The conference “Understanding transition. Austerity, communication, and the media” is going to be an international forum of discussion for all these aspects of the issue. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches, as well as multinational and cross-cultural perspectives. Conference's languages are English and French.

Please send an extended abstract, of 700 to 1000 words, to the following address: raluca.radu @ fjsc.ro by the 28th of February.
