The Italian section of the Department of Foreign languages at the
University of Bergen, in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the
Italian Institute of Culture in Norway, is pleased to announce the
international Conference Italy and Media, to be held at the Faculty of
Humanities on November 18 -19, 2011.
Media, through different languages, play a significant role in education,
information and entertainment. Such languages are creative, fascinating and
influence people´s way of thinking and behaving, but can also be
reiterative and banal, and have a dangerous 'seductive' power towards those
people who don't possess skills enough to understand their traps.
The study of media in Italy is extremely interesting and challenging,
considering also links among political power, media and communication. The
2 days long Conference aims at giving a platform to interact and discuss
the role of language in the Italian mass media nowadays, involving scholars
from different disciplines.
Call for Papers:
- Italian language and media
- Politics in mass media
- The role of social-networks
- The power of advertising
- The power of TV
- Media, school and education
Authors are invited to submit a max 400 word abstract (in Italian or
English, to marco.gargiuloif.uib.no) with name(s) of author(s), title of
paper, affiliation, e-mail contact information.Abstracts are invited for
20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion).
Deadline: July 10, 2011.
Conference fees: 50 (students 30)
