Conference Description:

The Mass Media & Communication Unit of ATINER organizes a Stream on “Sex and Media”, 14-17 May 2018, Athens, Greece as part of the 16th Annual International Conference on Communication and Mass Media sponsored by the Athens Journal of Mass Media and Communications.

This stream will explore the ways in which the media (such as electronic, print, filmed entertainment, new social media and photography) represent, affect and shape sexualities and our understanding of them, and conversely, the impact of sexuality on the media and their modes of representation. The stream will also explore the ways in which economic and technological factors impact on the ways in which we understand, experience and constitute (our) sexualities. You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.

Fee structure information is available on https://www.atiner.gr/2018fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, an one-day visit to Delphi and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit a 300-word abstract before 15 January 2018, by email, to atiner@atiner.gr, Dr. Karen Gabriel, Associate Professor, International Institute of Social Studies-EUR, The Hague, The Netherlands, and Head, Department of English, St Stephen’s College, Delhi University, India.

Please include: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Current Position, Institutional Affiliation, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Please use the abstract submitting form. Decisions will be reached within four weeks of your submission.

If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. organize a stream, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER & Honorary Professor, University of Stirling, UK (gregory.papanikos@stir.ac.uk).

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units. Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to: info@atiner.gr.
