Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 2.00.13 PM

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2016 CSW Mentoring & Networking Luncheon at AEJMC on Saturday, Aug. 6, 12.15-1.30 pm. We had a slight change in speakers.

Mark Kappelhoff was recently appointed to be a state judge, so he cannot participate as speaker as planned. Therefore, John Choi, Ramsey County Attorney, will be speaking instead. He has led Minnesota’s most successful human trafficking busts, resulting in the longest sentences for pimps in Minnesota history.

Tania Cantrell Rosas-Moreno is our second speaker. She is an Assistant Professor in Latin American and Latino Studies at Loyola University Maryland and an expert in international communication and especially engaged with social justice issues at the intersection of  feminism and education. She is also the winner of the 2016 CSW Mary Ann Yodelis Smith Award for Feminist Scholarship!

This luncheon is going to be fantastic. We hope that many of you can make it. The fee is $48 and If you have not signed up yet for the luncheon, you can still do so when you pick up your registration materials in Minneapolis or when you register for the conference online.

AEJMC 2016 Pre-Conference Teaching Online Media & Diversity Classes

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 2.00.13 PMAEJMC 2016 Pre-Conference

Teaching Online Media & Diversity Classes:
Pitfalls & Unique Opportunities Minorities & Communication Division and Commission on the Status of Women Workshop

Wed, August 3
1-5 p.m.
Fee: $8

Many college journalism instructors have experienced the challenge of  teaching and discussing often sensitive and provocative issues such as media depiction of race, gender, class and sexual orientation. Some instructors also have noted that teaching media and diversity classes totally online has its own set of challenges and unique rewards, often distinct from the face-to-face class setting. Primarily women and people of color teach courses focusing on multiculturalism and media. You will be hard pressed, for example, to find a heterosexual White male journalism administrator who has taught a media and diversity course.

A concern is that since at most schools these courses are taught by faculty of color, women and perhaps a handful of White men, administrators often may not have sufficient familiarity to relate to the challenges of teaching them. Another possible trepidation, is that some instructors teach large online media and diversity classes of several hundreds students that can intensify already sensitive course material interpretation, particularly with the intense pressure at many universities and colleges to offer a variety of online courses and degrees.

This panel will discuss critical challenges and unique opportunities in teaching online media and diversity courses, including a look at sensitive instructor experiences; rewarding and unique instructor experiences; ways to use social media in the course curriculum; U.S. social history awareness challenges for students located across the globe, the traditional 15-week versus 6-7 week course module; class size impact (from modest enrollments to MOOCs); “killing the messenger” influence on teacher evaluations; elective compared to required course factors, administrative support, and more.

We need your help as reviewers for AEJMC in Minneapolis

Hello wonderful CSW members or future members
I am still seeking reviewers for the 2016 research paper competitions. So far, I’ve only had 16 people sign up to review, which is not nearly enough to help us have a strong paper competition. Remember: The more people who sign up, the fewer papers everyone will have to read and the better our outcomes will be for everyone! You can still review for us even if you plan on submitting a paper to the Commission.
Before I give you directions for signing up, I’d like to ask you to pass this along to your academic friends as well. The more the merrier for reviewers!
 
Here’s how to become a reviewer for the CSW: 
First, go to the All-Academic site through the AEJMC website or to this address http://convention2.allacademic.com/one/aejmc/aejmc16/and create an account (username and password) in the All-Academic System. Go to the right side of the page and scroll down until you come to “Click here to create new username and password.”
I would like for you to create your account by Friday, March 11, 2016. This will allow for assignments of papers to proceed quickly and you will have immediate access to your assigned papers to judge soon after the All-Academic system closes for paper uploading.
Creating your user name and password now will also allow you to submit, judge and download papers all from the same created account. You will not be able to view anything yet with All-Academic, but creating your user name and password will allow us to complete the process of updating the site for the Minneapolis 2016 Paper Competition. Each year is unique, and if you created an account last year, you will need to do so again this year.
Second, once you’ve created an account in All Academic, please go to this link and fill out a brief survey: https://usu.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3E4UmdRnqvMuDYh. This will give me a little bit of information about you, your research interests, and how much you feel you can review for us this year. We can’t always honor your requests; however, I will attempt to match your interests as much as is possible based on our reviewer pool.
 
Thank you!
Best,
Candi
