Call For Papers
EQUITY AND EQUALITY OF THE SEXES IN COMMUNICATION
Equity and equality of women in communication: Are women getting there?
North Miami, Florida – Florida International University, April 21-22, 2016
It’s a decades-long discussion that even now has reached no consensus or conclusion: Where are women in the ranks of communication professions? What roles do women play in the reinvention of the media and communication industries? How are women portrayed in the various media? What is the potential role of women in leading social changes? The first Annual Conference titled “Equity and equality of women in communication: Are women getting there?” seeks to address those questions. We will discuss the research efforts and results that will focus on ways to advance and empower women in all communication facets including advertising, broadcasting, digital media, journalism and public relations. The four best papers will be also selected to be presented in the AEJMC Annual Conference in Minneapolis, August 4-7, 2016. Deadline for submission: March 1, 2016. See Complete Call. (PDF)
