The Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences of the Catholic University of Portugal and the Center for Philosophical and Humanistic Studies host the International Congress "Rethinking the Press in the Digital Ecosystem" from 3 to 5 July 2019 in Braga.

On the occasion of the centennial of the Diário do Minho regional newspaper, we invite the academic community to reflect on the reconfiguration of the written press in terms of professional, sociopolitical, cultural, economic, technical, ethical and legal issues within the new digital paradigm.

Focused on the scientific area of the Communication Sciences, this interdisciplinary event seeks to stimulate the reflection around the issues and changes that presently constitute a challenge of unprecedented magnitude for printed daily media that, throughout the previous centuries, already had to comply to a series of other vicissitudes (such as socio-political changes, new media competition, technological change, etc.).

The Congress invites a set of invited international researchers and thematic sessions.
