Clifford G. Christians Ethics Research Award

Sponsored by
Carl Couch Center for Social and Internet Research


Carl Couch Center issues an annual call for research papers and published
works (i.e., books or articles) to be considered for Clifford G. Christians
Ethics Research Award.  To be considered for the Christians Award,
submissions should interpret or address important theoretical issues in the
areas of ethics, mass communication theory, and the relationship between
media and technology and culture; interpret and apply concepts employed in
Christians' work in new and insightful ways.  Submissions will be evaluated
based on the quality of (1) mastery of Christians’ approaches and concepts,
(2) originality, (3) organization, (4) presentation, and (5) advancement of
knowledge.  Evaluation will be administered by a Review Committee of four:

                        Dr. Lee Wilkins, University of Missouri

                        Dr. Robert Fortner, International Center for Media

                        Dr. Ronald Arnett, Duquesne University

Both single and co-authored works are accepted.  Applications may only be
submitted for award consideration once.  Published materials submitted must
have appeared no earlier than eighteen months prior to each year’s
application.*   *The Award winner will receive a Christians Award plaque to
be presented in the 2012 Annual Convention of the Association for Education
