Carl Couch Center for Social and Internet Research

The Carl Couch Center invites self-nominations for works to be
considered for its annual James W. Carey Media Research Award.  The
Couch Center welcomes works on topics that have been central to Carey's
scholarship. Submissions might focus on technology, time, space and
communication, the nature of public life, the relation between
journalism and popular culture -- among others -- taking these themes in
new or different directions. Applications will be evaluated based on
engagement with Carey's approaches and concepts, originality, and
advancement of knowledge.  Evaluation will be administered by a Review
Committee of five:
	 Prof. Stuart Adam, Poynter Institute for Media Studies
	 Prof. Theodore L. Glasser, Stanford University
	 Prof. John Pauly, Marquette University
	 Prof. Jeff Pooley, Muhlenberg College
	 Prof. Lance Strate, Fordham University

Both single and multiple authored works will be accepted.  All
submissions must be works that have been published or have been accepted
for publication in a book or journal. To be considered for the 2010
award, works should have been published or accepted in 2009.

Those interested please submit a copy of their works electronically to
Mark D. Johns, executive director of CCCSIR, at mjohns at luther.edu in
plain text, Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, or Adobe Acrobat format.
If the work submitted is a paper, a 100-word abstract needs to be
included. Paper length is limited to 30 pages plus references. If a book
is submitted, a copy of the table of contents and one chapter are
sufficient. The application deadline is April 1, 2010. Notification of
