The crisis corresponds to the moment which overturns a system which could until then be qualified as coherent. The crises can be of different natures; social, economic, political and even health as noted by the Covid-19 pandemic. In a crisis context, communication occupies a central and strategic place. All communication channels are in use and some are becoming saturated. From 2010, socio-digital media represented new areas of popular protest. Research has shown that the emergence of socio-digital media has played a significant role in shaping the crises of the past 15 years. In particular, these media have deprived the traditional mass media, as well as journalists, of their power to control information conveyed to the public, as well as that of debates in the public space.


In this wave of change, the organizing committee of this workshop invites researchers and practitioners from various disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds to share on the subject of media and communication in times of crisis according to, among others, the following themes:

  • Research results on the media and / or communication in a crisis context;
  • Media practices in a crisis context;
  • Proactive or reactive communication campaigns to a crisis;
  • Communication devices and / or tools in times of crisis;
  • Post-crisis communication;
  • Uses and practices of socio-digital media in times of crisis.
