CFP: Media Studies 2.0

Special Edition: Media Studies 2.0 – A Retrospective

MERJ invites submissions of full articles and research reports related to the claims and counterclaims surrounding the idea of Media Studies 2.0, first put forward in 2007 and the subject of debate and dissensus since.

Four years on, has media education been significantly transformed by Web 2.0? Is ‘DIY media’ competing with media coursework in schools, colleges and universities? Has the online age led to a new pedagogy for media education? How are teachers responding to an intake of ‘prosumer’ students? Or has the ‘brave new world’ of Media 2.0 failed to materialise?

We invite papers and reports that present the outcomes of media education research related to any aspect of this discussion. Read the guidelines for submission here.
