Jönköping conference on Genres and Media Landscapes in Virtual-Physical Learning Spaces

On 12-14 September 2018, the School of Education and Communication (HLK) at Jönköping University organises an International conference of the CCD (Communication, Culture & Diversity) network. The conference is entitled ”Genres and Media Landscapes in Virtual-Physical Learning Spaces. Moving Frontlines?” (GEM 2018).

Deadline for submitting abstracts is 15 April 2018.
The conference is chaired by Associate Professor Ylva Lindberg, and the committee also includes Professor Sangeeta Bagga-Gupta, previously working at the School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (HumEs) at Örebro University, that hosted a similar conference entitled ”Virtual Learning Sites as Languaging Spaces” (ViLS-2) in 2015 (more information). 
The invited speakers include Imtiaz Haznain, Professor of Sociolinguistics at Aligarh Muslim University; Manjula Srinivas, Associate Professor at K.C. College in Mumbai; and Sanjay Ranade, Associate Professor in Communication and Journalism at Mumbai University. Full information about the GEM 2018 conference.
