emma Conference 2020, Jönköping, Sweden postponed to June 2021

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. Based on information from the World Health Organization (WHO), and recommendations from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Public Health Agency of Sweden, we have decided to cancel this year's emma conference in Jönköping, Sweden and delay it to June 2021. The postponement does not mean, however, that all activities are cancelled- We are still awarding our annual emma Best Paper Award and will publish a Journal of Media Business Studies (JOMBS) special issue featuring emma conference papers. In addition, JOMBS will host an online paper development workshop for authors who would like to receive feedback on their emma conference paper to support them in developing it to enhance chances of subsequent publication in the journal.

emma Summer School, Lisbon, Portugal

In 2020, the summer school will take place in Lisbon at the ISCTE - University Institute of Lisbon and will be organized by the Centro de Investigação e Estudos de Sociologia (Sociology Research Centre) and the Communication Sciences Department – a part of the School of Sociology and Public Policies. In addition to the conference, the emma Summer School is organized every other year. This summer school aims to provide an international and supportive setting in which doctoral researchers in the field of media management can exchange knowledge with peers, senior scholars and industry delegates. By presenting research projects and discussing feedback, participants both gain a deeper understanding of their work from a broader perspective and develop oral and writing skills. Additionally, through interaction with peers, scholars and practitioners, the emma Summer School has proved to be a good place to network. The emma Doctoral Summer School 2018 took place in Bournemouth (UK) on 4–6 July. It was a successful event organized by the Faculty of Media & Communication and the Research Group Advances in Media Management (AiMM). The summer school in Lisbon will take place on 7–10 July, 2020. Registration is now open!
