For purposes of written research papers and publications, the term "journalism history" shall be seen as a continuous process, emphasizing but not necessarily confined to subjects of American mass communications. It should be viewed not in the context of perception of the current decade, but as part of a unique, significant, and time-conditioned past.
We had a great time in St. Paul. Enjoy these photos of presentations and special events at our 33rd annual convention.
Roessner wins inaugural Rising Scholar Award
American Journalism presented Amber Roessner with the inaugural Rising Scholar Award at the convention in St. Paul, Minn.
The award was accompanied by $2,000 in research funding, which Roessner plans to use for archival and oral history research for her second book on President Jimmy Carter’s historic run for office in 1976.
The Rising Scholar Award recognizes the achievements and potential of an untenured scholar.
