Call for Papers 19th Annual Conference

CALL FOR PAPERS/PANEL PROPOSALS
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MARCH 15

“A Virtual Revolution: Technology and Change
Call for papers/panel proposal
19th Annual Conference
Saint Peter’s University
April 11, 2015

The New Jersey Communication Association invites complete papers, media presentations, panel proposals, and poster sessions from students, scholars, faculty and practitioners related to the conference theme "A Virtual Revolution: Technology and Change”. New media technologies have revolutionized virtually every facet of human society. They have altered the way we work, the way we learn, and the way we teach. First the advent of the Internet and now social media have shattered traditional paradigms for the understanding of mass communication, altered media industries, and empowered audiences. The new media have altered the way we make connections and, unfortunately, often the way we create divisions among people. New media have emboldened tyrants, while at the same time given a voice to the powerless and the oppressed. Communication scholars are on the forefront of understanding the ways a virtual revolution has changed the world and they are teaching how to use technology to empower and unite rather than oppress and divide. The NJCA annual conference provides scholars, teachers, students, administrators, and communication professionals a forum to exchange ideas, information and research. Submissions may include extended abstracts of works in progress, full-length papers of 25 pages or less, panels, workshop ideas or other collaborative opportunities. We strongly encourage the participation and contribution of students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. An award for the best student paper at each level will be presented at the conference. A student poster session will also be a part of this year’s conference. Submissions for a poster session should include a 150-word abstract. Students should be able to construct their posters out of 3-sided, free-standing boards for display.  Professionals are invited to attend to discuss their journeys as communicators.

*Please include the following information in your e-mail and on the front page of your submission: name(s) of presenters, title of paper/panel, poster, abstract, 3-5 keywords/phrases, student status if relevant (graduate or undergraduate), school affiliation and department, address, phone number and email. In addition, a statement of professional responsibility should be included on the cover or title page and should state the following: “In submitting the attached panel/paper proposal, I/we agree to present at the 2015 NJCA conference if it is accepted. I/we further recognize that all who attend and present at NJCA must register and pay the required fees.”

Submissions must be sent by March 15, 2015 to Dr. Barna Donovan ( 1st Vice president of NJCA) at bdonovan@saintpeters.edu.
