The hosts of the AEJMC’s Southeastern Colloquium 2013, set for Feb. 28-March 2 in Tampa, Fla., seek a volunteer to coordinate the Newspaper and Online News Division’s academic paper competition. Attendance at the event would be required.
The job entails recruiting reviewers to judge the papers that will arrive by the Dec. 10 deadline, using the judge’s comments to decide which papers to accept and reject, notifying people who submitted papers of the final status, creating the panel(s), and recruiting moderator(s) and discussant(s).
It is an excellent opportunity to follow the latest research, learn how the research process works in preparation for volunteering to join the Division’s leadership, and provide service to the academic community.
To volunteer, contact Newspaper and Online News Division head

The University of South Florida in Tampa is hosting the AEJMC Southeastern Colloquium 2013 on February 28-March 2. (What better time to be in Florida?)
The Newspaper and Online News Division is a co-sponsor, and we’ll of course have an academic paper competition. Details and deadlines will come soon.
The Embassy Suites USF/Busch Gardens is the site, at $139 for double/king suites (before taxes.) Yes, the hotel’s famed breakfast and the evening manager’s cocktail reception are part of the deal
Edward Jay Friedlander is director of the host committee, and program director Justin Brown will be working with research chairs.
There’s a whole lot of tweeting going on this week from the Newspaper Association of America and American Society of News Editors event in Washington, President Obama speech included… and some excellent use of their conference “hashtags” on Twitter, with links to stories by student journalists and others.
Even if you don’t have a Twitter account (but you should!), you can follow the links from the event-specific tags NAAmXc, ASNE12:
- Note that organization-name hashtags are risky… producing links to everything from aviation to the National Autism Association https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23NAA
- Other confusion “@asne” is not the American organization; it’s someone in Osaka who hasn’t used the address, but got there first. The American Society of News Editors website is asne.org (not .com; that’s someone else again) and its Twitter handle is @NewsEditors: https://twitter.com/#!/NewsEditors
Samples of what’s going on, in no particular order — also interesting folks to follow if you do have a Twitter account. (Mine is https://twitter.com/#!/bobstep) Admittedly, this is not journalism; it’s cutting-and-pasting links so that I can find them later myself…
Peer reviewers are needed to read papers for AEJMC’s Southeast Colloquium beginning in early December, with a review deadline in mid-January.
The deadline for paper submissions is Dec. 13, so it is anticipated papers would be mailed for review by Dec. 15. (Submissions are in physical, not electronic, form.)
Reviews would need to be completed by Jan. 15 so that authors can be notified by the end of January. The colloquium is March 17-19 at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C.
We would like to have enough reviewers so that no one person is handling more than three papers, and preferably fewer.
Please volunteer by letting Doug Fisher know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your preferred mailing address and any areas you feel especially qualified to review in.
The AEJMC Newspaper Division is accepting panel proposals for the 2011 convention in St. Louis, Aug. 10-13.

From the indispensable Nieman Journalism Lab:
A Harvard-based conference on online journalism and the law will also help inaugurate a new legal service ?called Online Media Legal Network (OMLN). The one-day symposium occurs on Friday April 9 at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Mass..
The OMLN says it aims to connect “qualifying online journalism ventures and digital media creators with lawyers willing to provide legal services on a pro bono or reduced-fee basis.”
Sounds a bit like what state bar associations used to do for small community newspapers and struggling journalism grad students. My only slight concern comes from this sentence from the conference website: “[The OMLN] supports promising ventures and innovative thinkers in online and digital media by providing access to legal help that would otherwise be unavailable.” What will be deemed worthy of aid?
Deadline: Friday, March 26, 2010. Application guidelines
The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma is launching a new fellowship program for journalism educators June 17-18 at Columbia University in New York. Travel, lodging and curriculum-development funds are available.
The program is designed to provide college and university journalism faculty and advisers to student media advanced skills in teaching the art and craft of newsgathering, storytelling and self-care when reporting human tragedy.
Meg Spratt, director of Dart Center West at the University of Washington, notes that few student journalists are trained to recognize trauma and stress reactions in survivors, to make informed ethical choices about trauma news or to deal with their own emotional reactions while on the job.
The Dart Center has provided such training for working journalists; this new fellowship will make possible a three-day seminar for up to 12 college and university journalism educators.
The Dart Center will provide airfare and hotel in New York City for each fellow. In addition, up to $500 in post-seminar support will be provided each fellow to design and implement educational projects.
