CALL FOR PAPERS
The Religion and Media Interest Group of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication invites submission of research on any topic related to religion and media. RMIG is interested in papers using any recognized research method and any recognized citation style. Please note that RMIG is interested in research presentations, rather than essays or commentary. Possible areas of focus for the research include but are not limited to studies of religious group members and uses of secular media, exploration of media coverage of religious issues and groups, studies of the audiences for religious news, media strategies of religious organizations, religious advertising, religious content in popular culture, and so on. The competition is open to both faculty and students. Papers will be considered for presentation for research panels and a research poster session.
IMPORTANT: Please follow the guidelines for the AEJMC Uniform Call for Papers (available on the AEJMC website). Please note the maximum length of 25 pages, excluding endnotes and tables.
Presentation: The best papers will be presented at the AEJMC 2003 convention; thus, an author must be there. The convention will take place August 4-7, 2004 in Toronto, Canada.
Top Papers — The RMIG Division is also sponsoring an "Award Winning Paper" competition for top faculty and student papers at this year’s convention. The "Top" paper in each category will be selected from among the refereed papers submitted to the RMIG competition. The top paper winners will receive $100 and a certificate. In the case of multi-authored papers, all authors must be students to qualify for the Top Student Paper award.
All submissions must be sent Priority or First Class and must be postmarked by April 1, 2004, and must be received by April 6, 2004, for consideration.
