ATINER will hold a Stream on “Media Communication & New Challenges in the Entertainment World” as part of the 5th International Conference on Turkey and Turkish Studies, 2-5 July 2018, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Mass Media and Communications.
The aim of this stream is to bring together media researchers from all over the world, giving them the chance to present their work on the entertainment industry and share their findings from researching their local societies on the matter. This session invites all media researchers to discuss how local media environments function in the new global reality. Our approach is interdisciplinary, proposing to cover all the fields related to media and entertainment industry: from radio to social media, all forms of media, such as Radio, TV, Cinema, Music, Internet, Social Media, Mobile Media etc., may be the object of your researches. The main conference is mostly oriented toward the Turkish studies, but this stream is not limited to Turkish context. Academics and researchers from different countries are welcome to expose their ideas and findings concerning the local societies they belong to. We are also waiting for Turkish academicians from different parts of the world to participate and present their papers.
The session intends to cover any theme related to the Turkish media and Turkish entertainment environment, as well as any other country’s reality of the mass media and entertainment industry. More aspects to investigate are the existing or possible relations of other countries with Turkey, in the area of entertainment, including the fields of films, TV programs, serials, music, as well as social media.
The rapid progress of technology is responsible for many changes in the world, and is also affecting the mass media and the entertainment industry. A new world is being formed, to which we are all called to adapt as persons and as societies. So, let’s see how do the local media and the local entertainment industries adapt to this new reality and what are the challenges they are facing. What are the new media trends worldwide and in each society separately? How does the advertisement industry function worldwide and locally? What are the products each local entertainment industry is interested in and what are its expenses? The presentations may be English or in Turkish.
You may participate as stream leader, presenter of one paper, chair of a session or observer.
