Technology in Journalism and Mass Communication History
The Buzz: Technology in Journalism and Mass Communication History
American Journalism, the quarterly journal of the American Journalism Historians Association, announces a call for manuscripts for a special theme issue focusing on technology and history.
The issue, edited by David T. Z. Mindich, will be called "The Buzz: Technology in Journalism and Mass Communication History" and is scheduled for Fall 2000. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2000.
The theme of technology is an inclusive one. Topics could include but are not limited to: how printing, the telegraph, or other devices changed or challenged journalism; implicit comparisons between older technologies and newer ones including ways in which the public viewed future technology; and the role of technology in formulating or reformulating minority communities. The term "technology" itself could be approached in a number of ways, including electronic, electric, and pre-electric (including printing) communication aids. Manuscripts that include graphics are encouraged.
Manuscripts, which should follow the American Journalism guidelines for submissions, should be sent to
