The conference’s goal is to promote an intellectual debate on the role of the media in the promotion of good governance in Latin America. By bringing together senior scholars and young researchers, this initiative seeks to provide a space of exchange about the theoretical and methodological relevance of current debates. This conference aims to address academic debates in the field of global media, media and development, and the de-westernization of media studies. It will provide international scholars the opportunity to discuss theoretical and methodological approaches, country-based case studies, comparative projects and academic collaborations in a transdisciplinary setting.

The Call for Papers to the 5th Conference Media and Governance in Latin America is now open and can be accessed here. The deadline for submissions of abstracts is January 30
