Event description

Description

The graduate students of Boston University’s Division of Emerging Media Studies invite abstracts for their third annual #ScreentimeBU conference. Please visit the conference website page to submit your abstract, and otherwise confirm your attendance by registering on this Eventbrite page.

#ScreentimeBU aims to explore the civic, social, and psychological implications of today’s media landscape. This conference is an opportunity to bridge diverse perspectives on the roles of users and technology in new media and to lay the groundwork for future research in the field.

Emerging media studies is an inherently interdisciplinary field, and as such we welcome abstracts from a variety of disciplines on a range of topics centered around our conference theme: Fake News, Real Emotion, and The Mediated Self.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Alternative media, and citizen journalism
  • How emerging technologies change journalism and civic engagement
  • Online relationships, communities, and social networks
  • Big data analysis and machine learning
  • Media effects and changes in digital media consumption
  • Self-presentation on social media and digital privacy concerns
  • Video games, virtual reality, and augmented reality
