About


MES 18

Join the International Media Education Summit in Hong Kong on November 1st and 2nd 2018.

Each year the summit brings together a global network of researchers, educators and practitioners working across all aspects of media education, media and digital literacy and media / technology in education.

The event is the leading global showcase for research, pedagogy and innovation on all aspects of media education.

Now running for twelve years, MES is convened by the UK’s Centre for Excellence in Media Practice, in collaboration with a leading organisation in a different country each year. In 2018, our host is Hong Kong Baptist University

Keynote speeches and plenary panels will be presented / led by Fergal Keane, Donna Chu, Sarah Jones, Hyeon-Seon Jeong and the D.A.R.E Collaborative.

Presenters will be invited to submit their work to Media Practice and Education.

The 2018 Youth Media Education Summit will take place in partnership with South Island School.

Conference Papers


MES2018 invites presentations of research/ practice in the broad fields of media education, media / digital literacy and media / technology in education. These papers should share the outcomes of research / practitioner enquiry, raising questions for the audience to discuss. Presentations are typically 15-20 minutes in length, forming part of a parallel session of 3 or 4 papers.

We are now accepting abstracts of no more than 200 words (excluding references). Your abstract should be double-space and in Arial font no less than size 12. Submissions can be made in either a Word document or in RTF format.

The abstract must include:

  • A list of references at the end (a maximum of 5 texts and no fewer than 2 texts)
  • Five key words;
  • A short biography of a maximum of 35 words.

MES Conversations


This strand of the conference offers a different, more interactive platform for the exchange of research, practice and innovation in the broad fields of media education, media / digital literacy and media / technology in education. MES conversations are given more time than standard presentations (typically two per parallel session) and can take the form of a seminar discussion, screening or other showcasing of work, demonstration, panel, workshop or roundtable, but we are open to other proposals.

We are now accepting abstracts of no more than 200 words (excluding references). Your abstract should be double-space and in Arial font no less than size 12. Submissions can be made in either a Word document or in RTF format.
