From: Josephine Coleman: Chair, Radio Studies Network, MeCCSA
The MeCCSA Radio Studies Network (UK) is delighted to announce a 'Save the
Date' for the forthcoming symposium "Signal Strength: women & media
practice in conflict and crisis situations". In association also with the
MeCCSA Women's Media Studies Network and the British Academy for the
humanities and social sciences, the University of Sheffield is planning to
host this one day event on Thursday 8th March 2018 – International Women’s
This symposium will examine the extent to which radio – and other forms of
media – provide a platform for women who are, or have been, in situations
of conflict and crisis. A mix of talks and presentations will address the
areas of radio and media, as implicated in women’s experiences of conflict
and crisis around the world.
Drawing on practice and academic research, discussions will explore
multiple angles such as: - gendering media strategies to improve the
recognition and representation of women in peril; issues surrounding the
safety and protection of women journalists and aid workers; and the limits
and limitation of media freedoms.
Speakers include: Caroline Vuillemin, CEO, Fondation Hirondelle, Lausanne;
Dr Helen Turton, University of Sheffield; Tala Halawa, BBC, West Bank.
Details regarding further speakers and the cfp will be issued shortly but
for now, please save the date! Please direct any queries to
