Please submit your abstract at firstname.lastname@example.org and copy in Dr Vanessa Malila at email@example.com .
The 2018 edition of the World Media Economics and Management Conference (WMEMC) seeks to interrogate the business, management and leadership strategies, tactics and policies of the current media industry in Africa and globally to gauge their relevance and effectiveness in an age where international digital media conglomerates are increasingly displacing traditional media in the creation, value-addition and dissemination of media content to audiences. The conference will also examine efforts to save quality and credible journalism in mainstream media in the midst of a range of emerging challenges, including those posed by the global ‘platform economy’ technological firms, as well as opportunities that call for media to embrace well thought-out strategic alliances of adopting vertical and horizontal operations and ownership, diversification, etc. in the globalized media terrain.
Major conference research topics include:
A Globalized World
Education, Teaching and Learning
Measuring Media Consumption Trends and Impact
Media and Journalism Ethics
Big Data and Its Implications for Media Firms: An Invited Research Session
Details on the research themes available at the conference website.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Papers on other topics that are directly relevant to media economics and media management will also be considered.
