The 100th AEJMC Annual Conference
Closing the Gap: Media, Research and the Profession
2017 Paper Call
The Visual Communication Division of AEJMC invites faculty and students to submit competitive papers devoted to theoretically based studies of visual communications, and to issues concerning the professional practice of visual media production, for presentation at the association’s annual conference. Visual is broadly defined as and includes photography, film, television, web design, graphic design, illustration, and digital imaging, as well as other visual phenomena.
The division encourages submission of papers that address a broad spectrum of methodology and application, both qualitative and quantitative, on all types of visual media: advertising, broadcast, digital imaging, film, graphic design, multi- media and web design, photojournalism, propaganda images, visual images and culture, visual literacy, and visual aspects of political campaigns, etc. Research in media history, law, policy, effects, processes, uses and ethics regarding visuals are also welcome. All submissions will be blind refereed by a panel of independent readers. Student papers will be assessed along with faculty papers. A $100 award will be given to the top student contribution. The top three faculty papers will be recognized in the AEJMC annual conference program.
Papers are accepted for peer review on the understanding that they are not already under review for other conventions and that they have been submitted to only one AEJMC group for evaluation. Papers accepted for the AEJMC Conference should not have been presented to an- other convention or published in scholarly or trade journals prior to presentation at the conference. Authors may submit more than one paper to the Visual Communication Division.
