Panel at the ICA Conference in LondonWe are very fortunate. In June, some of the contributors to the Palgrave International Handbook on Women and Journalism ( see earlier blogpost) will be able analyze the current situation for female journalists. Thanks to our editor, Carolyn M Byerly, we will be part of the academic discussion in London where The 63rd Annual Conference of International Communication Association (ICA) will be held. Only 36 % of the papers and panels were accepted so it is quite a thrill. For me it is also my first ICA conference.
The theme of our panel is Women Journalists in Turbulent Times: The gendered impact of historical shifts in newsrooms. The panelist are: Carolyn M Byerly, Howard University, Jad Melki, American University of Beirut, Diana Iulia Nastasia, Southern Illinois University, Margaretha Geertsema-Sligh, Butler University and my self, Maria Edstrom, University of Gothenburg.
If you are attending the ICA conference, please come and take part of the seminar:
