Faculty, leadership attend
AEJMC in San Antonio


Many School of Communications faculty and staff members took part in the annual conference of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communications in San Antonio Aug. 9-13.

David Copeland was a presenter in two sessions, delivering a talk titled "It's Primary: The Importance of Primary Documents in Conducting Research" at a special workshop for the Standing Committee on Research, and also leading a session titled "War and War Correspondents: The Significance of News Coverage to the Nation" that ties to the release of a new series of history books he edited for Greenwood Press. He also took part in a panel that paid tribute to the late Margaret "Peggy" Blanchard.

Janna Quitney Anderson promoted her new book "Imagining the Internet." The book ties to the Predictions Database that Anderson and others put together under a grant from the Pew Internet & American Life Project. Anderson was recognized at the conference for winning second place in the "Teaching Site" category of the AEJMC "Best of the Web" competition for the "Imagining the Internet Predictions Database" site, which can be found at http://www.elon.edu/predictions.

Dean Paul Parsons and Department Chair Don Grady represented Elon at a number of functions, and Grady presented "Agency-Principal Obligations in Internships," a paper by he and Jessica Gisclair, during a session on internship management.

Ocek Eke presented "C-SPAN, See White: A Critical Analysis of Washington Journal's Guests," and he also was the discussant for a session titled "International Explorations and Global Implications." Eke was also selected as secretary for one of AEJMC's divisions.

Frances Ward Johnson was slated to be the discussant in a research session hosted by the Minorities and Communication Division, but she fell ill on the journey and did not appear.
