The Joint Journalism and Communication Historians Conference, held annually at the Carter Institute for Journalism at NYU, welcomes submissions for its 2020 conference!

Research papers, research-in-progress, and panel proposals are all welcome. Each proposal should include a 500-word abstract detailing the presentation topic and a compelling rationale as to why your research would interest an interdisciplinary community of scholars. Participants are limited to a single submission per category.

Papers are completed research studies, and should be attached to the submission, along with the 500 word abstract.

Research-in-progress are projects that are currently underway, and which would benefit from collegial feedback in a conference setting. The JJCHC welcomes this work and prides itself as a forum for generative thinking and feedback. To submit an RIP, include a 500 word abstract of the work in the submission form.

Panels are pre-constituted presentations around a single topic. To submit a panel, include a 500 word rationale overview, along with separate abstracts for individual presentations.

Workshops This year, JJCHC is inviting workshop submissions (previously known as ’10 in a Den’). These round-table meetings are designed to foster intimate conversation among peers working with similar theories, ideas, or methods, or in related subject areas. These are also useful opportunities to work toward a collaborative project, such as journal special issues or proposals for edited collections. Scholars are encouraged to propose meetings of any time length during the conference day with up to twelve participants. To submit a workshop, include a 500 word abstract and rationale and a list of possible participants.

All submissions will be managed through EasyChair. Presenters must create an account through Easy Chair in order to submit work.

Creating an account is quick and easy. Once your account is created, you can submit at the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jjchc2020
