      About ESN

ESN is a section dedicated to the work and careers of emerging scholars 
in the field of media studies and communication. Therefore, 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.

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

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

Further announcements on panels and events on such topics, and practical 
information on the ESN mentorship programme, will follow over the coming 
months. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact the 
section co-chairs.
