„Cognitive and Emotional Involvement during Media Reception

Co-Hosted with StoryNet

The 7th Conference of the Media Psychology Division (German Psychological Society) will take place on August 10 and 11, 2011 at Jacobs University Bremen, Germany, chaired by Prof. Dr. Margrit Schreier and Dr. Özen Odag. The division chairs as well as local chairs and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences cordially invite you to Bremen.


The focus theme of the conference is „Cognitive and emotional involvement during media reception“. By suggesting a focus theme we aim at concentrating results, advancing theoretical development in this area and fostering exchange with other subfields in psychology and with neighbouring disciplines. Irrespective of the focus theme, contributions from all areas of media psychology are welcome.
