JSchool’s faculty, students thrive at AEJMC 2011

by Robert Stewart, Director

Our school’s faculty, graduate and undergraduate students were recognized for their research and journalistic work at the recently concluded Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) meeting in St. Louis, Missouri.

Professor Michael Sweeney, the JSchool’s graduate director, wrote in a recent blog post about our graduate students who presented at the conference. In addition to the graduate students, several faculty presented their research on topics ranging from citizen journalists to libel issues surrounding the Civil Rights movement. Two undergraduates, Yang Chu and Alexandra Stuckey, were recognized for their international reporting.

Several international scholars who were taking part in the JSchool’s “Study of the United States Institute“ also presented research during the conference.
