Exploring the language of the popular in Anglo-American Newspapers 1833-1988
Principal Investigator Dr Martin Conboy, Department of Journalism Studies, University of Sheffield
We are calling for expressions of interest for the first two seminars of the AHRC-funded Research Network, one in Sheffield on 14 January 2011: ‘Exploring digital newspaper archives’ and one in New York as part of the Joint Journalism Historians Conference on 12 March 2011: ‘The long popularization process: Anglo-American perspectives’.
Please send abstracts of 500 words to Administrative Assistant Clare.Burke@Sheffield.ac.uk by the end of October 2010 if you feel that you can make a significant contribution to either or both of the seminars. We have a limited amount of sponsorship available to support travel to both seminars and in some cases we can also pay for participants’ accommodation.
