AEJMC Southeast Colloquium accepts 13 research papers by Carolina graduate students
The 2013 Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) Southeast Colloquium will feature 13 papers from 12 graduate students from the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
This year’s colloquium is hosted by the University of South Florida in Tampa, Fla., Feb. 28 – March 2.
Carolina graduate students will present nine of the 20 papers in the Law and Policy Division – the most of any school. Second-year doctoral student Elizabeth Woolery had two papers accepted in the division. Her paper, “The Press, the Public, and Capital Punishment: California First Amendment Coalition and the Development of a First Amendment Right to Witness Executions,” won third-place student paper.
Second-year doctoral student Lisa Barnard won top paper honors in the Open Division for "The Creepiness Factor: Explaining Conflicting Audience Attitudes toward Tailored Media Content."
“The AEJMC Southeast Colloquium draws research paper submissions from faculty and graduate students at some of the very best journalism and mass communication programs across the nation each year,” said associate professor Michael Hoefges, who will moderate a law and policy panel at this year’s colloquium. “Having so many Carolina papers accepted through the blind-review process for presentation this year continues a strong tradition of research for which the program has been known for many years.”
Ph.D. alumni Michael Fuhlhage, an assistant professor at Auburn University, and Dana Rosengard, an assistant professor at Suffolk University, had papers accepted in the History Division and Electronic News Division, respectively.
