Conference: Analyzing Social Media with Digital Methods: Possibilities, Requirements, and Limitations (Prof. Bernhard Rieder). FCSH/NOVA, 21 de Outubro, 18h-20h, Auditório 3.

Esta conferência apresentará uma perspectiva geral do actual «state of the art» da pesquisa orientada por dados às plataformas de «social media» e às práticas comunicativas que estas potenciam. Tomando o Facebook, o Twitter, e o YouTube como exemplos, será demonstrado de que forma a análise destas plataformas confere possibilidades relevantes para pesquisa em ciências sociais, ao mesmo tempo que apresenta um conjunto considerável de desafios que exigem particulares cuidados metodológicos e uma sensibilidade interdisciplinar.

O desafio da autenticidade na era da globalização

Conferência de Pedro Brieger, vencedor do Prémio de jornalismo Hrant Dink, na FCSH/NOVA, 24 de setembro, 10h30, Auditório 1, Torre B. A maioria da informação que hoje circula no mundo, e especificamente na América Latina e no Caribe, é gerada por um conjunto restrito de agências europeias e norte-americanas. Os mais influentes órgãos de comunicação social cobrem frequentemente a atualidade internacional com base no fluxo de notícias das agências EFE, DPA, AFP, Reuters ou ANSA. Uma das questões centrais na era da Globalização é perceber se essa realidade informativa pode ser transformada pela difusão de conteúdos produzidos regionalmente que reflitam a idiossincrasia dos respetivos povos.

II Congress on Net-Activism (call for papers)

The contemporary ecological cultures, sustainability practices, and digital activism movements that, through ways of non-institutional conflictuality carried out by interactions with social networks, marked the continuing protests at all latitudes, are the expression of a new type of social action no longer directed to the external, and not only stems from a practice caused by an informative and technical conditioning. The II International Congress on Net-Activism aims to discuss this new kind of inter-action and conflict, indicating by “net-activism” the set of collaborative actions that result from the synergy between actors that are not only humans, but also of different natures.

BBC Market Impact Assessment

Ofcom has today published details for its Market Impact Assessment (MIA) of proposed changes to BBC Three, BBC iPlayer, BBC One and CBBC. The proposed changes include:
• the closure of BBC Three as a broadcast channel in the autumn of 2015;
• its reinvention as an online-only offer;
• the evolution of BBC iPlayer from primarily a catch-up service to one that also offers online-first BBC content, and selected third-party content;
• the launch of a ‘+1’ channel for BBC One;
• extended hours for CBBC; and
• increased investment in drama on BBC One.
The BBC Trust is undertaking a Public Value Test (PVT) of the proposals. As part of the PVT, Ofcom will carry out a Market Impact Assessment to examine the likely impact of the BBC’s service proposals on similar and related products and services.
