The Civic and Citizen Journalism Interest Group of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication seeks panel proposals for the August 2006 AEJMC Convention in San Francisco. Some general ideas that emerged from the 2005 conference included questions such as:
1) Who is the next generation of agenda setters for civic & citizen journalism?
2) What kinds of academic support do the traditionally under represented need to initiate citizen journalism projects?
3) What legal challenges might citizen journalist initiatives face?
4) How is the issue of credibility changing the face of journalism and what are the implications for civic, citizen, and student journalists?
Panels should be proposed as either Professional Freedom and Responsibility, Teaching, or Research. (FYI: The deadline for AEJMC research papers is April 1, 2006.)
See the group's web site or contact the Program Planner for panel format information. Proposals should be received by October 15, 2005.
