University of Cologne
Call for Papers - 3rd Economics of Media Bias Workshop
February 15-16, 2018 in Cologne, Germany
We invite researchers to submit papers or extended abstracts to the 3rd Economics of Media Bias Work-shop. Organized by the eponymous research network, the workshop will be a platform to discuss current research, exchange ideas, and explore new collaboration scenarios.
As a group of economists and political scientists, we investigate forms, causes, and consequences of media bias, especially in news markets. Main questions of interest are:
- How can media bias be defined and measured?
- In which situations is bias driven by the supply side of the news market? When is it caused by the demand side?
- What are the economic and political consequences of media bias?
Keynote speeches will be delivered by James M. Snyder, Jr. (Harvard) and Ruben Durante (Sciences Po and Universitat Pompeu Fabra).
Both theoretical and empirical work is welcome. Those interested in presenting their work at this work-shop are invited to email a research paper or extended abstract to Jil Soerensen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 15, 2017. Authors of accepted papers will be notified on December 1, 2017. Presenters have to carry their own expenses for transportation and ac-commodation. There will be no conference fee.
