Changing Media Landscapes: Convergence and Fragmentation

28-30 October 2023


Media platforms have developed at an unprecedented rate recently, disrupting traditional models for publishing, broadcasting, and advertising and creating a need for identifying new models. As media become more fragmented and at the same time converge, implications can be seen across several different areas, such as the way people access media, how media are marketed, and how the media industry is changing.
Consequently, the consumers of media messages have changed their usual patterns of consumption. The phenomena of digitization, media convergence, media fragmentation, and consumption of media and user-generated content set the agenda of interests and concerns for educators, scholars, and practitioners.

The main objectives of this conference are to discuss, analyze, and critique topics related to those phenomena and to contribute to the academic debate about new media models and theory. The subjects and themes covered in the conference will include, without being limited to: 

  • History of media fragmentation and convergence in media landscape

  • Digital and social media fragmentation and convergence in media landscape

  • Changes in media theories and research in a fragmented and converged media landscape

  • New media for media education in a fragmented and converged media landscape

  • Effects of media convergence and fragmentation in media landscape

  • Corporate and strategic communication and their relationships with media convergence and fragmentation in media landscape

  • Agenda setting effects of influencers in media landscape

  • Effects of media fragmentation and convergence on consumers in media landscape

  • Fragmentation and convergence of journalism in media landscape

  • Health and emergency communication in a fragmented and converged media landscape
