Department of Media Studies participates in the "European Communication Conference

Last week, the 9th European Communication Conference (ECC) took place in Aarhus, Denmark. The IfMK was also present with three presentations.

Under the title "Fake or fact? Factors influencing the ability of recipients to assess the truthfulness of impactful news" Johanna Radechovsky presented first results of her dissertation. In it, she examines the susceptibility of recipients to false information and identifies levers to improve resilience against misinformation and disinformation.

In her presentation "The transformation of the journalistic profession: (Re-)defining the skills of future journalists for algorithmic newsrooms", Dr. Aynur Sarısakaloğlu explored the challenges facing journalists in algorithmic newsrooms and the resulting journalistic skills needed to ensure effective human-machine interactions. 

The ECC is held every two years in a different European location and is hosted by the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA), the main European professional association in the field of communication and media studies. We congratulate our colleagues on their successful presentations!
