Eurozine Online Workshops
Editorial autonomy: Conference 2020
As part of the Eurozine Online Workshops series, Eurozine held the online meeting to discuss plans for the 31st European Meeting of Cultural Journals in Budapest in November 2020. 17 participants joined the meeting, including co-organisers from Hungary and editors from Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Turkey.
Eurozine’s next annual conference will be held in Budapest on 13–15 November 2020 and will focus on publishing models and editorial integrity. The meeting will be dedicated to mapping the ownership concentration and increase of political pressure on the media, also showcasing successful models of independent publishing, which can navigate political pressure and market obstacles, in an age of fake news and social media. Participants of the online meeting shared their thoughts and ideas to further develop the conference concept and exchanged views on how to include different perspectives, such as art and culture.
The meeting also served as an opportunity to discuss potential speakers and conference formats. A 3-day programme will consist of panel discussions, workshops, bar camp and political matinee. Many interesting experts on the topic were suggested by participants.
