International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR)



The Emerging Scholars Network (ESN) invites you to participate in the
2011 International Congress of the IAMCR to be held in Istanbul,
Turkey, from July 13 to 17 2011. This year’s theme is “Cities,
Creativity, Connectivity”. We call for general academic papers in
Communication and Media Studies as well as papers addressing the
concrete conference theme.

The ESN is a section dedicated to the work and careers of emerging
scholars in the field of media and communication. Hence, we especially
look for works in progress from graduate students and new university
instructors/professors who are interested in substantial feedback and
comments intended to advance their projects.

The ESN organizes emerging scholar panels and joint panels with other
sections. Our emerging scholar panels provide a comfortable
environment for the presentation of theses and works in progress,
where emerging scholars can receive feedback from colleagues also at
the beginning of their careers and from senior scholars who act as
respondents to individual papers. The joint panels with other sections
allow for the exchange of ideas with senior scholars in the field and

In line with the purpose of our section, the ESN also organizes panels
about issues affecting emerging scholars:

- Publishing research results;
- Mentoring and the Student-mentor relationship;
- Academic work and academic jobs;
- Neoliberalism in the academy;
- Language barriers in academia.

Scholars who wish to organize or contribute to an issue-related panel
are welcome to contact Michael Dick at michael.dick[at]gmail.com.
