A new name for the conference, to reflect its broadened mission

The Joint Journalism Historians Conference is now the Joint Journalism and Communication History Conference.

In order to reflect the broad range of scholars doing research in journalism, media and communication history, the conference has added “communication” to its name, and has changed “historians” to history, since even though history is the common thread of the conference, not all researchers who attend the conference think of themselves as historians.

The call for papers for the next conference, to be held on March 10, 2012, will be released this week.
