From the head…

“CT&M is a division sometimes misunderstood. One might consider CT&M as the division that ties all AEJMC divisions together. For example, CT&M is one of the few divisions that includes political communication research, health communication research, computer-mediated communication research, international communication research, as well as broader media effects research. CT&M also offers a home for methods pieces and theoretical pieces. It offers a little bit of everything for everyone.” - Michel Haigh, CT&M Division Head
