Dear members,

after our successful Urban Media Studies conference in September at the University of Zagreb it is now time to tackle the temporary working group’s next activities.

As you know, the next ECREA’s general conference will be in Prague in November 2016, and we look forward to meeting many of you there. In addition to a thematic session organised by us, there will be a twg business meeting in Prague (including the selection of a new management team or a re-selection of the existing one). Meanwhile, however, we would like to prompt you already to think the 2017 twg event. In case you have any ideas or suggestions concerning the potential topic, nature, scale and place of this event, please do not hesitate to contact the three of us via the twg mail (

Regarding the Zagreb conference, we are about to start preparing two publications on topics that were in the focus of the conference (a book and a journal special issue). Both publications will be theme-based and therefore the contributions to them not limited only to the conference presenters. More information will follow in coming weeks.

As for other activities, the management team members’ home universities (University of Tampere, Catholic University of Milan, University of Zagreb) have made Erasmus+ agreements in order to enable teaching collaboration on media & the city thematics. Joint teaching at the MA and PhD levels will begin in spring 2016. This pedagogical endeavour is something that we intend to develop further, so if you are interested in getting involved, we warmly welcome you to contact us via the twg mail (

With kind regards & looking forward to hearing from you,


Seija, Simone and Zlatan

(the management team)
