The Call for Papers (CFP) of the pre-conference ‘Doing gender’ across mobile apps, organized by the MyGender project and the University of Coimbra, is already online. It will be an official pre-conference of the 9th edition of the European Communication Conference (ECC) of ECREA – European Communication Research and Education Association – and will be held online, on October 18th, 2022.

The pre-conference is currently accepting abstract submissions for theoretical and empirical studies that use qualitative, quantitative or mixed methodologies and whose focus is on the following topics:

  • How do the uses of m-apps dialogue with social and political contexts?
  • How does gender identity performances vary across different m-apps?;
  • To what extent do uses intertwine with the affordances of these apps?;
  • How do gender identities are negotiated and imagined in user experiences of mobile apps?;
  • To what extent mediated interfaces reproduce or challenge normative imaginaries of gender?

Other abstracts that focus on topics related to gender, sexuality, and app studies are also accepted.

The pre-conference organization will publish a book with submitted papers. 

Abstracts (300 words max.) should be sent to until 1st of July of 2022. The notice of acceptance will be sent by the 15th of July.
