Bricolage & Fluidity: Towards ‘Post Channel’ PSM? @ Online
Oct 26 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Prof. Lizzie Jackson will be opening this very first season of IAPMR@Dialogues with a webinar on “Bricolage & Fluidity: Towards ‘Post Channel’ PSM?“, with responses by Madiana Asseraf-Jacob (Head of Business Development & Young Audiences, EBU Media) and Vilde Schanke Sundet (University of Oslo). Young people think in terms of media universes (rather than television and radio channels) composed of linked ‘bricolage’ blending professional and publicly-generated content. Evidence from Glowaki and Jackson’s (2019) suggests a more fluid, entrepreneurial, PSM structure and culture is required. However, is it possible to power such media landscapes without radically changing the internal structure of PSM?

Building Bridges: PSM law, theory and practice @ Online
Nov 4 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Karen Donders (VRT) and the commentators Anette Alen-Savikko (University of Helsinki), Hilde Van Den Bulck (Drexel University), and Klaus Unterberger (ORF) will be in charge of the second IAPMR@DialogueBuilding Bridges: PSM law, theory and practice. In this webinar they will discuss the practices of #PSM across Europe, including the rules that govern Public Service Media at both the EU and the National Member State level. They will also explore challenges to the theories of #PublicServiceBroadcasting which have developed an ideal-type public broadcaster based on the well-funded BBC in an atypical media market. Seeking to further explore the actual practices of Public Service Media and make recommendations for the development of more sustainable policies, this webinar will highlight case studies of rules and practices from across a variety of EU Member States to consider the extent to which public broadcasters are making the transition to public media.

The event is based on Donders’ award-winning new bookhttps://www.routledge.com/…/Donders/p/book/9781138477056

He will discuss theoretical foundations and present the results of empirical research on the digital public sphere. He will give special attention to digital capitalism, COVID-19, public service media, and the Internet as aspects of the 21st-century transformation of the public sphere.
