Appel : Animation et industrie culturelle

“Animation as Cultural Industry? Designing and Making Cartoons”, appel à articles pour la RFSIC (Revue française des sciences de l’information et de la communication n° 18, Sébastien François et Marie Pruvost-Delaspre (dir.) 

Pour le 31 mars 2019

Even though academic interest for the animated medium remains on the fringe of media studies, it seems to have gained much importance during in the last few decades (Crafton, 1982; Pilling, 1997; Lamarre, 2008; Wells, 2012). Following the impetus of the thriving “animation studies” in the English-speaking context and the pioneering work of the Society for Animation Studies (SAS) founded in 1987, scientific research on animation has started to spread across different linguistic areas and countries. Nevertheless, animation as a field of research still appears in a state of dispersal and fragmentation, marked by recurrent tropisms. Indeed, due to their dependence to related scientific projects or events, the works conducted on animation and its multiple formats and techniques have been developed within different disciplinary fields, such as film and media studies, communication studies, history or sociology, but in a certain state of unawareness of one another (Pilling, 1998; Denis, 2011). They also have been mainly focused on aesthetics and contents –and to some extent on reception–, putting aside the practical conditions of the making of animation.

Culture et (in)dépendance : les enjeux de l’indépendance dans les industries culturelles

Peter Lang, 2017

« Indépendant », « alternatif », « indie », « underground », « avant-garde », « de création »… Depuis les années 1970, la revendication d’indépendance a pris une importance grandissante dans les univers de production culturelle. Qu’elle se rapporte à des contenus, des méthodes de travail ou des dispositifs de médiation, cette revendication propose une alternative à la domination des groupes et des productions mainstream. Son succès conduit cependant à s’interroger sur la cohérence même d’une notion progressivement transformée en label de qualité.

À travers douze contributions traitant de l’édition, du cinéma, de la musique, des médias et de la vulgarisation scientifique, cet ouvrage Continuer la lecture de Parution : Culture et (in)dépendance

Appel : Media Industry Studies

CFP: ​MEDIA INDUSTRY STUDIES: CURRENT DEBATES AND FUTURE DIRECTIONS

Réponses attendues avant le 15 septembre 2017, pour un congrès international les 18-20 avril 2018,  Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries, King’s College London

Studies of media industries have formed a distinctive strand of media scholarship. Foundational traditions in this field are marked by the political economy of communications, sociology of media occupations and institutions, media economics, media industry historiography, and critical and cultural studies. Subsequently, insights drawn from critical legal studies, cultural policy studies, economic geography, creative labour, cultural economy, Internet studies, production cultures and informal media economies have diversified and enriched the field.

In part this interest arises from contemporary changes within the media industries themselves, with the global extension and integration of media markets, digitalization of media production and distribution, changing business models, proliferation of supply channels, patterns of corporate convergence, and the blurring of producer/consumer relations. These are only the most recent development, however, of industries built on complex and contested histories.
