Canadian Journal of Communication: Announcements https://cjc-online.ca/index.php/journal A journal of research and scholarship encompassing the field of communication studies giving emphasis to Canadian work and Canadian issues. en-US CFP: Call for Papers: CJC's Policy Portal 4 - "Regulation" https://cjc-online.ca/index.php/journal/announcement/view/263 <p>The Canadian Journal of Communication (CJC) Policy Portal seeks submissions for Policy Portal 4, focusing on the theme of “regulation.” </p> <p>Regulation of communication and “big tech” platforms is a pressing issue, with numerous government investigations in Canada, the United States, and the European Union deliberating how to regulate along several vectors: anti-trust law to break up the monopoly power of platform giants; development of robust and actionable privacy enforcement; content moderation to stem propaganda, hate speech and extremism; AI regulation; algorithmic accountability and transparency; digital literacy initiatives; and ethical design principles for platforms. </p> <p>With a focus on interdisciplinary and intersectional approaches to regulation, papers can be directed toward current Canadian or global initiatives or be comparative in scope. Papers can offer an analysis and critique of specific or proposed legislation, investigations, or case studies; provide an analysis and critique of structures of participation in policymaking; and/or provide an analysis of public interest and advocacy campaigns.</p> <p>Specific topics may include, but are not limited to: </p> <ul> <li>access and digital inclusion (affordable broadband in urban, rural, and remote communities)</li> <li>AI, algorithmic transparency</li> <li>antitrust enforcement (digital monopolies, platform companies and capitalization)</li> <li>content regulation (hate speech, online harms, mis/disinformation, production and distribution of Canadian cultural content, Canadian Broadcasting Reform Bill)</li> <li>copyright and online intermediaries</li> <li>data justice initiatives</li> <li>net neutrality</li> <li>privacy (modernization of legislation, consumer data privacy, facial recognition AI, “smart” cities)</li> <li>technologically facilitated gender-based violence (TFGBV)</li> <li>wireless competition and pricing</li> </ul> <p>Authors are encouraged to contact Leslie Shade, CJC Policy Portal Editor (<a href="http://mailman.ucalgary.ca/mailman/listinfo/acc-cca-l">leslie.shade at utoronto.ca</a>) if they have any questions. </p> <p><u>Submission Deadline and Guidelines </u></p> <p>Submission deadline: March 15, 2022 </p> <p>Peer-review Process: Spring 2022 </p> <p>Publication: Est.

It simultaneously became a worldwide health, social, and political issue.<span class="s4">1<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></span></p> <p class="p3">From a political perspective, the public management of the pandemic has weakened the legitimacy and authority of some national governments. Many leaders seemed unprepared and ill-equipped to react to waves and outbreaks of the pandemic. Others fare better. However, they all had to guide the transformation of individual and collective behaviors as well as supervise the establishment of new social norms in their populations.<span class="s4">2 </span>Many nations have also experienced an increasing circulation of conspiracist discourses and disinformation processes that have permeated public debate and endangered citizens’ lives.<span class="s4">3 </span>These phenomena were concurrent to a loss of public confidence in expert discourse (scientific, governmental, journalistic among others), which are of paramount importance in crisis management.<span class="s4">4<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></span></p> <p class="p3">The pandemic is also not without effect on the routines of news organizations and on the work of journalists<span class="s4">5</span>, who were faced with a double mission. First, they had to inform citizens about the evolution of the pandemic, about the actions of public authorities, and about appropriate sanitary measures (such as hand-washing, mask wearing or social distancing).<span class="s4">6 </span>Second, they had to try to bring informative and credible journalistic content back at the center of busy information flows competing in a complex hybrid media systems<span class="s4">7</span>.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Finally, the urgent health context has also made more visible the economic and political influence of big digital companies (GAFAM). These private businesses have approached several national governments to offer tracking and monitoring services developed to help fight the pandemic, which brought up economic, ethical, and legal issues associated with the use of digital tools to curb contagion.<span class="s4">8 </span>These digital initiatives have also raised questions regarding privacy and personal data protection.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Just over a year after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, this special issue of the <em>Canadian Journal of Communication </em>(CJC) invites contributions focusing on the different dynamics of the mediatization of the pandemic. By welcoming contributions from both a Canadian and comparative perspective, the issue aims, above all, to put into perspective how the pandemic affected political communication, journalism and public discourses in different national contexts, including Canada. Interdisciplinary theoretical and methodological approaches as well as strong empirical case<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">studies are strongly encouraged for submission. The selected papers will be published, in French or in English, in a special issue of the CJC in 2022.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">As part of this publication project, a workshop where selected papers will be presented and discussed is scheduled for February 2022. If sanitary regulations allow it, the event will be held in person at Université Laval, Québec City. An online alternative will be put in place otherwise. On this occasion, authors whose article proposals have been selected will be invited to present the first draft of their work. Members of the Scientific Committee will comment the papers at the workshop and help make the final selection of the papers that will be published in the dossier.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Proposals should focus on one of the following four thematic axes:</p> <p class="p3"><strong>Axis 1: Governmental and administrative discourses on the pandemic<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">Work on this theme examines governmental communication during the pandemic. Proposals should study, from an analytical, critical, or reflective point of view, the forms, contents and communication strategies of governments, public institutions, national public health managers and leaders of political executives regarding sanitary measures, social regulations and guidelines presented to populations. Empirical studies on discursive, digital or visual material as well as components of public and government communication would be particularly appreciated.</p> <p class="p3"><strong>Axis 2: Journalistic treatment of the pandemic<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">This axis follows a double objective. On the one hand, it seeks to examine how the pandemic affected the work of information and media professionals. On the other hand, it also aims at better understanding the challenges that the latter had to overcome to make their content available to the public. Having access to reliable, verified information produced by credible news organization is essential to the fight against the pandemic. Thus, submissions that enlighten the adaptations and the transformations of journalistic practices are encouraged, both from the point of view of the investigative techniques and functioning of newsrooms, as well as the strategies for legitimizing the role and work of journalists in a context of information abundance and disinformation.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>Axis 3: Counter discourses and public debate in digital arenas<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">Work on this theme analyzes the characteristics and the dynamics of communicational information phenomena arising from digital arenas during the COVID-19 pandemic. It should reflect on how digital technologies increase the visibility of discourses and counter-discourses produced outside institutional frameworks, such as governments or mainstream media. More specifically, paper submissions examining the production and circulation of discourses advocating against sanitary measures and vaccination as well as disinformation initiatives and conspiracist contents are encouraged.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>Axis 4: Pandemic, AI, and digital technologies<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">This last theme focuses on debates related to the integration of artificial intelligence systems and digital tools designed to control the spread of COVID-19. It seeks to put into perspective the economic and political interests that shaped these technologies as well as their effectiveness and benefits to fight the pandemic. Proposals investigating the political, ethical, and legal issues generated by the collection, processing, and use of personal data during the pandemic are welcomed. Empirical studies backed by theoretical and critical reflection on legal, ethical, and democratic issues related to the use of digital resources will be particularly appreciated.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>SUBMISSION PROCESS<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">Paper proposals must be sent in French or English at mediatisation.covid19@ulaval.ca.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">They must contain the names of the authors, a title, as well as a 400 words summary. It must present the research problem, the case(s) studied, the research questions and hypotheses, the methodology, and the expected scientific contribution. These abstracts will be evaluated by members of the Scientific Committee for the first selection of papers to be presented at the workshop in February 2022.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>PLANNED TIMETABLE<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3"><strong>23/06/2021: </strong>Launch of the call for contributions<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>30/08/2021: </strong>Deadline to submit a paper proposal<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>30/09/2021: </strong>Notification to authors of the selection or rejection of their proposal<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>01/02/2022: </strong>Submission of a first draft of the paper by authors<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>18-19/02/2022: </strong>Workshop at Université Laval<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>04/03/2022: </strong>Notification to authors of the final selection or rejection of their paper<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>15/04/2022: </strong>Submission of the revised version of the paper by authors<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>22/04/2022: </strong>Submission of the selected papers to the journal’s external reviewers<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>June to November 2022: </strong>final revisions of the selected papers and production of the issue<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>December 2022/Beginning 2023: </strong>Publication of the journal issue<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>ISSUE EDITORS<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">Camila Moreira Cesar, Political Communication Research Lab, U.

À l’échelle nationale et internationale, de nombreux pays connaissent une croissance de la circulation de théories complotistes et de processus de désinformation qui nuisent au débat public et mettent en danger la vie des citoyens<span class="s4">3</span>. Ces phénomènes se conjuguent à une décrédibilisation du discours savant (scientifiques, gouvernementaux, journalistiques…), qui est pourtant le nerf de la guerre dans la gestion de crises des sociétés contemporaines<span class="s4">4</span>.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Dans ce contexte, la situation sanitaire n’a pas été sans effet sur le fonctionnement des organes de presse et le travail des journalistes<span class="s4">5</span>, qui sont confrontés à une double mission. D’une part, ils doivent informer sur l’avancée de la pandémie, diffuser les actions des pouvoirs publics et prescrire les bonnes pratiques sanitaires (laver les mains, porter le masque, s’isoler, etc.) aux citoyens<span class="s4">6</span>. D’autre part, ils doivent replacer les contenus journalistiques au centre des flux informationnels dans un complexe système médiatique hybride<span class="s4">7 </span>rythmé par les dynamiques numériques.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Enfin, ce contexte d’urgence sanitaire a aussi rendu visible le poids économique, mais aussi politique, des grandes entreprises numériques (GAFAM). Ces acteurs privés se sont rapprochés de plusieurs gouvernements pour proposer leurs services dans le combat à la pandémie, rendant visible les enjeux économiques, éthiques et juridiques associés à l’utilisation d’outils numériques visant à freiner la contagion<span class="s4">8</span>. Ces initiatives numériques de veille et de lutte à la pandémie ont toutefois soulevé des questionnements liés à l’intrusion dans la sphère privée des individus au nom de l’intérêt public et du bien commun.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Un peu plus d’an après le déclenchement de la pandémie de Covid-19, ce numéro spécial de la <em>Revue canadienne de communication </em>(RCC) propose de revenir sur les différentes facettes de la médiatisation de la crise sanitaire afin de les comprendre et les expliquer davantage. En accueillant des travaux portant sur le Canada ou adoptant une perspective comparée internationale, ce numéro spécial vise surtout à mettre en perspective les impacts de la pandémie sur la communication politique, le journalisme et le débat public dans divers contextes nationaux, dont le Canada. Les approches théoriques et méthodologiques interdisciplinaires ainsi que des études de cas empiriques sont vivement encouragées dans les propositions d’articles soumises. Les textes sélectionnés seront publiés, en français ou en anglais, dans la <em>Revue canadienne de communication </em>en 2022.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Dans le cadre de ce projet de publication, la réalisation d’un atelier consacré au thème de l’appel est prévue pour février 2022. Si les conditions sanitaires le permettent, l’événement se tiendra en présentiel à l’Université Laval. Une alternative en ligne sera mise en place autrement. À cette occasion, les auteur-e-s dont la proposition d’article aura été retenue seront invité-e-s à présenter une première version de leurs travaux. Les membres du comité scientifique commenteront les articles lors de l’atelier et participeront ensuite à la sélection définitive des articles qui seront publiés dans le numéro spécial.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3">Les personnes intéressées sont invitées à soumettre une proposition qui s’inscrit dans l’un des quatre axes thématiques suivants :<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>Axe 1 : Les discours gouvernementaux et administratifs sur la pandémie<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">Cet axe a pour objectif d’examiner la communication gouvernementale autour de la pandémie. Il est ouvert aux propositions orientées vers l’étude, d’un point de vue analytique, critique ou réflexif, des formes, des contenus et des stratégies de communication des institutions publiques, des directions nationales de la santé publique et des dirigeants des exécutifs politiques dans la transmission des consignes et orientations à la population. Des études empiriques sur des corpus discursifs, numériques ou visuels ainsi que sur des composantes de communication publique et gouvernementale seraient particulièrement appréciées.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"><strong>Axe 2 : Le traitement journalistique de la pandémie<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong> </p> <p class="p3">Cet axe poursuit un double objectif. D’une part, il vise à interroger l’impact du contexte sanitaire sur le travail des professionnels de l’information et, plus largement, des médias. D’autre part, il cherche à comprendre les défis que ces derniers doivent surmonter à l’heure où la fiabilité et la qualité des informations diffusées s’imposent comme des enjeux centraux afin de lutter contre la pandémie. Seront ainsi accueillies des propositions qui traitent des adaptations et des transformations des pratiques journalistiques, tant du point de vue des techniques d’enquête et du fonctionnement des rédactions, que des stratégies de légitimation du rôle et du travail des journalistes dans un contexte d’abondance informationnelle.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"> <strong>Axe 3 : Les contre-discours et le débat public dans les arènes numériques<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong></p> <p class="p3">Cet axe vise à analyser les caractéristiques et les dynamiques des phénomènes info-communicationnels issus des arènes numériques dans le contexte de la pandémie de Covid-19. Il s’agira ainsi de réfléchir à la façon dont les technologies numériques favorisent la mise en visibilité de discours et de contre-discours produits en dehors des cadres institutionnellement légitimes, tels que les parlements ou les grands médias traditionnels d’information. Plus spécifiquement, les propositions d’article abordant les dynamiques de production et de circulation de discours contestataires des mesures sanitaires, d’initiatives de désinformation ainsi que de contenus conspirationnistes sont encouragées.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></p> <p class="p3"> <strong>Axe 4 : Pandémie, IA et outils numériques<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></strong> </p> <p class="p3">Ce dernier axe s’intéresse aux débats autour de l’intégration des systèmes d’intelligence artificielle et des outils numériques dans les mécanismes de contrôle des cas de Covid-19.

The role of the Fellow is to promote public discussion of a range of issues related to the nature of Canadian media. In reckoning with ongoing activism and policy responses to racism and inclusion, our current Asper Fellowship emphasizes the intersection of media and racialized groups in Canada and abroad, including Black communities, Indigenous communities, communities of colour and new immigrant communities of colour. We seek applications from scholars and journalists who study or produce media for and about racialized groups in mainstream or independent contexts.</p> <p>The Fellow is normally in residence for one term: for the coming year, either September-December 2021 or January-April 2022. The successful applicant will receive compensation of $20,000 which includes benefits for the term, and up to $10,000 to support project activities during the tenure of the fellowship. Travel and housing support are also available. The amount available for project support will depend upon the project’s proposed scope and an approved budget, to be determined in consultation with the Dean and the FIMS Assistant Dean, Research. Asper Fellowship teaching takes place in person, though the 2021-22 Fellowship may shift on-line pending COVID19 health and safety requirements.</p> <p>During the term of the Fellowship, the Asper Fellow will teach one course in an area of expertise in one of the Faculty’s programs, will deliver a public lecture to the Faculty and University community, and will be engaged in a significant media-related project that will lead to public dissemination. Currently, we seek projects that address the life and history of racialized groups, and/or the burdens of racism and exclusion, through a Canadian media lens.</p> <p>We anticipate that this position will appeal to journalism/media practitioners or to journalism/media scholars who would value an opportunity to engage in focused teaching and scholarly reflection.&nbsp;We also anticipate that the successful applicant will be a distinguished leader in the area of journalism/media studies who will use the Asper Fellowship opportunity to enrich teaching and scholarship or media making at Western.</p> <p>The Faculty of Information and Media Studies is a vibrant, interdisciplinary Faculty. It currently offers an undergraduate program in Media, Information and Technoculture (MIT), and a related stream Media and the Public Interest (MPI) with an enrolment of approximately 1,000 students, and graduate programs in Journalism and Communication, Media Studies, Library and Information Science, and Health Information Science.
