NordMedia has been held every second year since 1973. The conference migrates among the five Nordic countries, and 2021 it´s Iceland´s turn. The conference will take place in Reykjavík on August 18–20th and is hosted by the University of Iceland. A one-day academic workshop for doctoral students in media and communication studies, precedes the main conference, on August 17th.
Local organizers at the University of Iceland are getting ready to welcome Nordic media scholars to the capital and prepare for taking the conference online if the situation regarding the pandemic calls for it. We hope that we will all be able to meet in person in Reykjavík. Health authorities in Iceland now predict that by mid-year most Icelanders will have been vaccinated and hopefully restrictions at the borders have been lifted. However, if the pandemic prevents someone from attending, we will arrange to present your paper and follow discussions, panels and keynotes online. And should the need arise the whole conference will be moved online.

All information regarding NordMedia 2021 will be available on this site. Until now organizers for each NordMedia conference have had to make a new conference site, but from now on NordMedia has a permanent home at the NordMedia Research Network. The new digital platform operated by Nordicom. There you will find all you need to know about the past, present and future NordMedia conferences.

The call for abstracts for NordMedia 2021 in Reykjavík is out. The deadline is
February 19th and submission will open soon. Information regarding the program, registration, conference fee, accommodation will also be available in the coming weeks.
