Update for ICA Preconference, “The Objects of Journalism.”

(Please note: all preconference attendees, whether presenting accepted papers or simply attending the conference, should make sure to register for “PC 17- The Objects of Journalism” when they complete their overall ICA conference registration).

We are happy to announce our tentative schedule for the June 17, 2013 International Communications Association preconference, “The Objects of Journalism,” which will be held at the Frontline Club in London. For a longer description of the themes of the preconference, please see the earlier post on this site.

The process of making the final decisions about accepted and rejected abstracts was a difficult one. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of submissions we received, although our numbers seem consonant with the the overall high level of interest in the London ICA conference. Ultimately, we were only able to accept about  35% of the proposals submitted, which is roughly parallel to the percentage of papers accepted by the Journalism Studies division overall.

We are also happy to note that the overall fee for participation in the preconference has dropped to $35, thanks to generous support from ReSIC (Université Libre de Bruxelles) and the City University of New York Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism.

Please see the tentative schedule in the post immediately above this one. Additional logistical details will follow.
