Call for Papers

We are open to proposals

The VI Congress on Literacy, Media and Citizenship – “Digital Transition and Public Policies”, promoted by GILM, is an initiative that aims to deepen reflection and debate around public policies that have been adopted nationally and internationally in the current scenario of digital transition. Media literacy assumes today its place as one of the key literacies for empowering all citizens, without exception. It is undeniable that, particularly in the context of European Union countries, this recognition has been accelerated by the role that media literacy can play in the unavoidable fight against misinformation and false online narratives, as well as in the fight against hate speech, which is expanding in digital environments, phenomena that threaten the strength of democracy and the full exercise of citizenship.

The event, which will take place on April 21 and 22, 2023, at School of Communication and Media Studies – ESCS / IPL – Politécnico de Lisboa, aims to be an opportunity for decision-makers (policy makers, regulators, managers and directors of media outlets), to meet teachers and other educators from preschool to higher Education, specialists in information and documentation sciences, researchers and higher education students, journalists and other media professionals, cinema and audio-visual professionals and other stakeholders.

The organization of the congress invites researchers, educators and teachers, non-governmental organizations, specialists, and communication professionals to present their communication or poster proposals, whether they are studies, communications or projects that may fit in one of the following topics:
