You are invited to submit a 500-600 word proposal for completed papers, research in progress or panel discussions for presentation at the Joint Journalism Historians Conference—the American Journalism Historians Association and the AEJMC History Division joint spring meeting. Innovative research and ideas from all areas of journalism and communication history and from all time periods are welcome. Scholars from all academic disciplines and stages of their academic careers are encouraged to participate. This conference offers participants the chance to explore new ideas, garner feedback on their work, and meet colleagues from around the country interested in journalism and communication history in a welcoming environment. Your proposal should include a brief abstract detailing your presentation topic as well as a compelling rationale why the research is of interest to an interdisciplinary community of scholars.
We are also looking for participants for our “Meet the Author” panel. If you published a book in the past year (2010) or have a book coming out in the spring of 2011 and would like to spend a few minutes touting your book at the conference, please contact conference co-coordinator Lisa Burns (Lisa.Burns@quinnipiac.edu) with a brief blurb about your book.
This year, submissions will be processed through the new Media History Exchange, an archive and social network funded by the National Endowment of the Humanities and administered by Elliot King (Loyola University Maryland), the long-time organizer of this conference. Send all submissions (electronic submissions only) by January 5th, 2011 to Lisa Burns, conference co-coordinator (Quinnipiac University): Lisa.Burns@quinnipiac.edu (Tel: 203-582-8548). You’ll then receive details on uploading your proposal to the Media History Exchange. Also, if you are willing to serve as a submission reviewer or panel moderator, please contact Lisa Burns.
