Auditório Prof. José Araújo
The 6th Mapping the Magazine conference will be held at Lusófona University in Lisbon, Portugal, July, 2nd and 3rd, 2020.
‘Mapping the Magazine’ is a series of conferences established by Tim Holmes of the Cardiff University School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies (JOMEC).
The conference aims to create an intimate meeting of international magazine scholars from many disciplines (Media and Communications, Journalism, Gender and Cultural Studies, Sociology, Linguistics, English, History, Visual Communications, and so on) who are interested in exploring the current state of magazine research and possibly developing collaborative research projects.
The papers will be delivered sequentially over the two days, not concurrently in separate streams. Conference delegates are asked to commit to attending all papers.
Our keynote speakers this year are James Hewes and Joy Jenkins.
James Hewes is the President & CEO of FIPP, a global trade association whose membership comprises 700 enterprises, including nearly 60 national magazine associations.
