The Professional Master of Science in Journalism from FIAM-FAAM Centro Universitário, São Paulo, Brazil, will hold the 3rd International Symposium on Journalism on Multiplatform Environments between November 23th and 24th, 2017.

This year’s programming will focus on the journalism market and its expanding frontiers, as well as the changes  that are brought to production languages by the demand for multiple platforms. We look forward to having, during the two days of the symposium, discussions that focus on the fact that we are currently working on shaking grounds with well established processes going through a rearranging and revision process.

In opening lecture, Dr. Denis Ruellan from the Université of Paris-Sorbonne will deliver a talk on “Contracts and work relations in journalism in the age of convergence, which highlights the association between the recognized changes in Europe and Brazil. Other plenary sessions – “State of the journalism labour market and new arrangements in production” and “Multiplatform and mobility in Journalism: narratives, formats and strategies” – are put together by members of the academy and the industry, including the Brazilian Research Network on Work and Identity of Journalists, to discuss ongoing changes in some depth. The aim of these presentations is to stimulate a response to the following core question: “How do the demands of multiplatform journalism environments reshape, reorganize and redefine ethics, techniques and esthetics of the profession?”

Those interested in joining the debate will be asked to send their proposal abstracts prioritizing the relation between journalism in multiplatform environments, the main focus of the event, with one or some the following aspects:

  • Professional interfaces
  • Social media
  • World of work
  • Audiovisual production
  • Language and narratives
  • Mobile devices
  • Professional status and identity
  • Consumption and reception
  • Mediatization
  • Business models
  • Big data
  • Social interfaces
  • Alternative practices
  • Historic processes
  • Experiments
