Call For Papers

Hestia Symposium: Truth, the Media, and Democracy

The Association for Sociopolitical Heterodoxy is an international academic organization for scholars addressing sociopolitical issues from interdisciplinary standpoints. We invite presenters to apply good ideas, whether new or old, to issues facing contemporary society. We are proud to hold our second conference in the beautiful city of Hakodate.

For more details, please visit our website at sociohex.com.

• SUBMISSION deadline: June 30, 2020
• REGISTRATION deadline (presenters): July 31, 2020

Our HESTIA conferences feature three types of presentations:
ANALYTICAL presentations are 20 minutes in length, and consist of a brief introduction to a key concept, or the work of a particular scholar or writer, followed by an explanation of how the concept (etc.) can be used to frame contemporary issues in new and interesting ways. Analytical presentations are particularly accessible to new researchers, or those from outside academia.

RESEARCH presentations are 50 minutes. This allows ample time to showcase the ongoing research activities of one or more participants, and to engage with the audience.

DISCURSIVE presentations feature two or more presenters sharing differing views on a common subject. A mediator guides the interaction and invites participation from audience members. Discursive presentations are a more interactive take on the conventional panel.

Areas the applicant may wish to address include, but are not limited to, the following:
• The role of heterodox thought in liberal democracies
• Freedom of expression in the media/online
• Censorship and society
• Fake news
• Media ecology
• Polarization and culture
• Media literacy
• Media and politics
• The new media

Submissions:
Applicants are invited to submit one or more abstracts of no more than 300 words, tailored carefully to meet the requirements of the presentation type. Please also include a bio of no more than 100 words. For more details on preparing a submission, please visit the ‘submission guidelines’ page of our
website at www.sociohex.com

Publications:
Conference presenters will be invited to contribute to one of our three publications.
