Media and Mothers’ Matters

Friday 21 October 2011 1-5pm
The Boardroom, University of WinchesterHosted by:
Women’s Media Studies Network
School of Media and Film Studies, University of Winchester

This half-day round table conference is a participatory space for parties with an interest in media and women’s issues. It is supported by MeCCSA Women’s Media Studies Network and the Mothers’ Union.

The event is to foster dialogue on mothers’ concerns about media coverage and experiences from their engagement with the media. It is to establish or reinvigorate the agenda for teaching, research, advocacy and policy.

Keynote papers by:

  • Dorothy Hobson School of Law, Social Science and Communication, University of Wolverhampton
  • Stella Roberts Diocesan President, Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Winchester

Participants are welcome to present their positions on any aspect of the subject. These will contribute to the new research agenda which we hope will emerge, so come prepared.

Further details will be available in October on the following websites: MeCCSA; Mothers’ Union; and the School of Media and Film Studies University of Winchester

Registration of interest should be sent by email to by the 10 October 2011.
