Hi there

I am helping to organise a conference on European media at the  
University of Luton. It would be amazing if someone from the European  
newsreal could come along and talk about it. I have included the call  
for papers below, but I'd love to hear from you so we could talk  
about the possibility of presentations at this event.

Best

MEDIA IN THE ENLARGED EUROPE

POLICY, INDUSTRY, AESTHETICS, CREATIVITY
UNIVERSITY OF LUTON, UK, MAY 5th-6th 2006

Spring 2005 will mark the second anniversary of the European
Union's latest, greatest enlargement. With a host of further
countries lining up to join the EU, there is a need for critical
debate and reflection upon the cultural industries, policies and
identities of an enlarged Europe, a transnational bloc in which
local, regional and global interests cooperate and compete, and in
which diverse nations and cultures are discovering the costs and
benefits of Continental partnership.

The Research Institute of Media, Art and Design at the University of
Luton invites papers, presentations and artworks that offer original
perspectives on Europe's changing mediascapes. Topics may include:

European markets and audiences
European media policy
Media politics: Neoliberalism, the Third Way & the European Social
Model
European media industries
Competition within & beyond Europe
Images of the 'new' Europe: national & regional representations
Ideologies of Europe & Europeanness: Europe vs. the EU?
European media value chains
European distribution networks
Representations of non-European ethnicities within the EU
European English and the languages of media texts
European media studies; European media pedagogy
Christian Europe?: religious identities in the European media
Cinema, television, music, art & literature: Europe, America & the
rest of the world
Screenings, readings, exhibitions & performances of new creative &
documentary works

We anticipate presentations which embrace a wide range of approaches
and methodologies: from  media economics and policy studies to
textual analyses and new cinematic works. We are particularly keen to

welcome presentations whose focus is on the EU's new and prospective

member states and their early experiences of EU membership.

An international selection of papers will be included in the
conference proceedings.

Proposals (Abstracts of no more than 500 words plus bio) and all
other queries should be directed to Alec Charles or Jason Wilson.
