"Scandals in New Media Environments"

April 2. - 4. 2020

University of Bamberg | Department of Communication Studies | Bamberg, Germany


This call invites submissions for the 3rd International Conference in Scandalogy at the University of Bamberg from April 2nd to April 4th 2020.

The conference will focus on “Scandals in New Media Environments”. The overarching theme serves a two-fold goal: On the one hand, we want to intensify research on mediated scandals (cf. Entman 2012; Burkhardt 2018) and substantiate our understanding of such forms of scandals and their impact on societies. On the other hand, we hope to connect the study of scandals with a larger scientific community in the broad field of digital communication research, be it in organizational communication, journalism studies, political communication research or other fields.
