CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Sharing Journalism research with the world at the 2016 JERAA-World Journalism Education Congress Preconference
JERAA members and other journalism educators, researchers and students are encouraged to submit abstracts for the 2016 JERAA-WJEC Preconference on 13 July 2016, Auckland, New Zealand. The theme will be 'The Next Generation', with a focus on issues affecting newcomers to journalism education, training, and research.
The deadline for abstracts is Friday, 19 February. If you can't submit your abstract by the deadline, please contact the Preconference organisers as soon as possible to discuss the possibilities of an extension.
The one-day JERAA-WJEC preconference and three-day WJEC on 14-16 July will replace the annual JERAA Conference, which is usually held in November or December of each year.
Following a presentation and discussions at the 2015 JERAA Conference, the JERAA Executive has unanimously agreed that the association should act as publisher of the UniPollWatch website for the 2016 federal election. JERAA President Matthew Ricketson has issued a statement explaining the association's involvement in and commitment to the project.
