MeCCSA 2011 Conference

Date posted: 30/07/2010

The Lowry, Salford Quays, Salford, Greater Manchester
12-14 January 2011  

The Media, Communications and Cultural Studies Association (MeCCSA) is the UK subject association for those researching and teaching in the area, whether in arts, humanities or social sciences departments.
In 2011 the conference will be hosted by the Communication, Cultural and Media Studies Research Centre which is situated within the School of Media, Music and Performance at the University of Salford.
The conference is to be held at the award-winning theatre and arts complex The Lowry, at Salford Quays in the city of Salford. This is adjacent to MediaCityUK, where the BBC, the University of Salford, and other media and creative organisations have new facilities and buildings.
As is usual, the conference will include papers, presentations of practice, posters and panels across the range of interests represented by the Association and its networks. Papers, posters and panels will cover all areas of media, communication and cultural studies.
Instructions for Authors:
Abstracts of papers, presentations of practice and posters, no longer than 250 words, should be submitted at by 4 October (extended from 22 September) in order for peer review to take place.
For panels, they require a short description and rationale for the whole (200 words), abstracts for each of the papers (250 words each) and the name of the person chairing. For practice proposals please ensure that you send DVD preview material (not the whole item) with the abstract via post (details to be provided on the conference website).  Alternatively, include in your abstract a URL which points us to somewhere on the web where we can see preview material.
Poster Competition
There will be a poster competition with a prize of £100, to be judged by members of the MeCCSA Executive Committee. The academic poster is highly valued by MeCCSA as an indicator of current research and there will be a space set aside at the 2011 conference for this activity. An online tutorial on how to design a poster is available here:
