Mai 14th, 2014

Two jpub-presentations accepted for the European Communication Conference 2014 in Lisbon! (And two others rejected.)

We are very happy to announce that we will hold two presentations at the European Communication Conference (ECC) 2014. This year, the biennial international conference which is hosted by the European Communication and Research Association (ECREA); will take place from November 12th to November 15th in Lisbon, Portugal.
You surely know that our jpub-project – roughly speaking – deals with how audiences participate at four different German news media and why they do so. But this time in, we will try to answer the question why a large part of the audiences we surveyed does not participate. If you want to know more, just take a look at the abstract we submitted titled „‚It’s just not my thing‘ – Why audience members don’t use participatory features of (online) news media. Insights from four German case studies“.
Furthermore, Julius will present some theoretical and analytical work from his dissertation project on personal branding in journalism (read the submitted abstract here).
Unfortunately, two other abstracts we had submitted were rejected. However, just like before;, we want to tell you about those, too – especially since we won’t present them in Lisbon. Thus, we have uploaded them so you can also read about whether we think political TV talks are the ideal journalistic genre for audience participation and what we found when we compared a TV talk and a daily newscast with regard to what their journalists and users think about traditional as well as rather new journalistic tasks.
