The 100th AEJMC Annual Conference
Closing the Gap: Media, Research and the Profession
2017 Paper Call
The Entertainment Studies Interest Group invites faculty and graduate students to electronically submit papers for the 2016 AEJMC conference. Papers that deal with any aspect of mediated entertainment, including (but not limited to) narrative film, experimental cinema, fictional books, fictional television, game shows, new media, popular magazines, sports, and tabloid/celebrity journalism may be submitted. All methods (qualitative, quantitative, historical, critical) of inquiry are encouraged. Papers may not exceed 25-pages, excluding tables, figures, and references. All entries should follow the AEJMC uniform paper competition. All submissions will undergo a blind review process by a panel of independent readers.
Although all papers compete on an equal footing, the top-ranked student paper(s) sent to ESIG will receive special recognition and first author(s) will be awarded free conference registration. Stu- dents who wish to be eligible for this award must indicate when submitting electronically that the paper was written exclusively by one or more students. Only students are eligible for this prize; papers with any faculty co-author(s) are not eligible. The top-ranked faculty paper will be recognized. Authors are not required to be a member of ESIG to submit a paper.
The same author(s) can submit more than one paper to ESIG.
Specific Guidelines: Papers may not exceed 25-pages, excluding tables, figures, and references. APA or MLA are accept- able styles for references. At least one author of an accepted faculty paper must attend the conference to present the paper. If student authors cannot be present, they must make arrangements for the paper to be presented.
Questions regarding submissions should be directed to the research chair, Alexa Chilcutt, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
