Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap 2021 - Online Edition

Every year, the Etmaal van de Communicatiewetenschap conference (“24 hours of Communication Science”) takes place. This is an important get-together for communication scholars from the Netherlands and Flanders. The conferences are hosted by communication science departments, and the practical organization is in the hands of local organization teams.

This year, given the Covid-19 pandemic, a virtual version of the conference was held. Held in a smaller configuration than our regular Etmaal, the conference focused specifically on the scholarship lead authored by PhD students and research masters, as for them, it is most important to be able to present their work at academic conferences.

As in past years, some of CcaM's newest research made an appearance at Etmaal - incuding work on the accuracy of self-reported social media use; how families approach virtual assistants in their homes; and the struggles teens have with self-control when using media. Congratulations to all on your important work!
