Welcome to the CEMP newsletter for October
The full CEMP Bulletin for October / November 2014 is available at http://blogs.bournemouth.ac.uk/research/2014/09/26/cemp-bulletin-october-2014/
Media Producer / Digital Publisher

Bidding and Project activity
As the full bulletin shows, there is no rest in CEMP. We are awaiting outcomes of bids to ESRC and SRHE and are working on applications to the European Union, HEFCE, the AHRC Open World Initiative, the SSHRCC in Canada and Fusion. Julian and Phill Wilkinson been awarded £15K by Samsung for research into the use of technology at a school and community centre in Portland. Mark Readman was awarded a BU Learning and Teaching Fellowship and will be supporting Jim Pope on his FIF project. We are currently working on our UKLA project, mapping media pan-EU media literacy criteria to GCSE Media Studies, which will be presented to the UKLA Special Interest Group we are running at the Media Education Association conference in November and also at the forthcoming Media Education Summit. This is part of our EUADS funded work and will culminate in a forum in Salzburg in January and the submission of an EU H2020 application from that consortium.
Media Education Summit 2014
The programme is now available for CEMP’s international summit
in Prague in November. Keynote speakers are Lutz Hachmeister, Andrew Burn (Institute of Education), Renee Hobbes (Media Education Lab), Divina Frau-Meigs (Sorbonne, Paris) and Paul Milhailidis (Emerson College). Over 60 papers will be presented, along with posters and a kids’ media literacy workshop and we expect 75 delegates from across Europe and the United States to attend.
We are delighted to welcome Paula Herrero-Diz, a visiting researcher from Loyola Andalucia University who'll be based in CEMP this term. Paula is finishing her Doctoral project: 'Young prosumers: Children and adolescents as agents of social change through digital content creation' and will be presenting this to the Media School on October 15th, 1.30 - 2.30 in The Screening Room - all welcome. We continue to make good use of our Visiting Professor and Fellows. Susan Orr worked with our Ed group at the June residential and met with CEMP researchers. Jonathan Shaw did the same at the MACME residential in September and Becky Parry will be at the next Ed D meeting in October. We are developing a partnership with Jonathan’s Disruptive Media Lab
at Coventry University. Profiles for all our visiting scholars are on the CEMP site: http://www.cemp.ac.uk/people/
The forthcoming issue of MERJ is guest edited by the Digital Arts Research and Education consortium (IoE and BFI). All delegates at the summit will receive a copy. The next issue will be devoted to the Summit, co-edited with the Journal of Media Literacy Education (US) and featuring an article by Will Merrin, first presented at his ‘CEMP Conversation’ visit in May (video shortly to be available on the CEMP site). The deadline for submission to Neal and Julian's second edition of JMP has just passed. Neal will be shortly working on a new format for JMP Screenworks and will be arranging a meeting for people across the school to input to both the journal and its partner site.
The CEMP team are currently working on five book projects as authors or editors, for Routledge, Palgrave MacMillan (x3) and Auteur. Julian has taken over editorship of the “Hard Times’ project for Routledge. Isabella has three journal articles accepted within this REF period (EJISDC, Development South Africa
and Formazione & Insegnamento
) and three in preparation. Julian has one accepted (Journal of E-Learning and Digital Media)
and three in development. Mark is working on a chapter applying Actor Network Theory to time travel. Richard is working on journal articles for Adaptation in Literature & Performance
, and Film/Literature Quarterly
and a monograph on ‘Remaking Media’. Richard is also leading on our CEMP textbook for Media undergraduates, currently under review with MacMillan.
CEMP’s unique Ed D in Creative and Media Education has recruited well for the second year running and the first join residential of both cohorts takes place at the EBC in early October.
The new academic year has started well for the Media Short Course CPD Framework with three courses starting this month with 28 students in total, with courses taking place on Talbot Campus, the EBC and at Creative Skillset offices in London. CEMP are delivering a two week residential short course to Voice of Vietnam, a group of visiting media executives.
The second residential for the latest cohort of MA Creative & Media Education took place on Talbot Campus in September.
CEMP PGRs and Fellows
Neelam Parmer was awarded her PHD over the summer and we expect Marketa Zezulkova to follow suit shortly. Marketa is also working for us in Prague on the Summit, liasing with the Metropolitan University and the Goete-Institut. Michelle Cannon co-authored a report on the CCCS50 conference (http://cccs50.co.uk/
