Dear members: 

Please submit your work to the MAC! 

Paper Call:  Minorities and Communication Division

The Minorities and Communication Division invites submissions of
original research on any topic related to minorities in communications.
Submissions employing all methods of inquiry are invited. Papers should
include appropriate literature reviews, methodology, findings, and
discussion. Only one paper per primary author will be accepted.

The term “minorities” has been defined to include Latinos, African
Americans, Asian Americans, and Native Americans. Thus, papers examining
how these groups present images, news, and information about themselves,
as well as those examining how issues related to race and diversity are
featured in the media, would generally fall into this division’s area
of interest.

Papers should not be more than 25 pages, excluding references, tables,
figures, and other graphics. 

The MAC Division is sponsoring two “Award Winning Paper”
competitions at this year’s convention: Top faculty and the Alan
Bussel Award for Top Student Paper. The “Top” three faculty papers
and the “top” student paper will be selected from among the refereed
papers submitted to the MAC Divisions competitions. Students must
identify their papers as such (“Student Paper”) on the title page of
their submission. All sole- or co-authors of these papers must be
students; papers co-authored by students and faculty should be submitted
to the Faculty Research Paper competition.

A first place winner in the “Top” faculty paper competition will
receive $200. The second place winner will receive $100 and the third
place winner will receive $75. The student winner will receive a
complimentary ticket for the MAC luncheon during this year’s
convention and $100. Certificates will be awarded to each of the
winners. In addition, the other top student papers will have the
opportunity to participate in a scholar-to-scholar session.

If you have questions, please contact Yuki Fujioka

Chair) or Brad Gorham ([log in to unmask]), Syracuse University (Student
Research Chair).
