The AEJMC August 2005 convention is in San Antonio, and the Civic Journalism Interest Group is seeking panel proposals. The topic can be anything that has to do with civic, or public, journalism, which now extends into citizen and participatory journalism and “We Media” as well the new technologies that can make or enhance newsgathering, including everything from weblogs to wikis to cell phones and instant messaging to building e-mail friendly news communities.
Proposals don’t need to be fancy – just think of a title, write a paragraph describing your idea for a panel or invited paper session, include a list of possible participants, suggest other AEJMC divisions or interest groups that would be likely co-sponsors (if you know of any), then add your name, address, phone number, email address and other vital information. Add which category you think your proposal fall under: Teaching, Research or Professional Freedom and Responsibility.
