--Special 93rd Annual National Communication Association Convention Issue--

Mass Communication Division
National Communication Association
April 2008
Published three times annually by the Mass Communication Division of NCA.
Publications Editor - Adam Earnheardt, Youngstown State University


In this issue:
 


Welcome from the Chair
R. Lance Holbert, holbert.27@osu.edu

Greetings to all members of the Mass Communication Division. I am sure you are once again hitting your stride after completing your NCA submissions for our 2008 convention in San Diego. I know that your submissions are in good hands with division Vice Chair Travis Dixon (University of Illinois) and Research Committee Chair (Sharon Mazzarella, Clemson University) in charge of the selection process for our division.

I also extend a special welcome to our new members and our student members. We had a fine turnout at our business meeting in Chicago. However, I would very much hope for an even larger turnout at the business meeting this coming year. It is extremely important for the health and future well being of the division to get as many people as involved as possible, and attending the business meeting is the gateway for future participation. I encourage all of you to attend our next business meeting in San Diego and to get involved in the division by volunteering to serve on committees and/or nominating yourself for officer positions. I’ve found few tasks as rewarding as serving this particular NCA division.

The division retains a strong foundation of volunteers and I consider myself most fortunate to have worked with all of them. I would like to take a moment to thank the division’s past, present, and future officers: Travis Dixon, Vice Chair; Andrew Billings, Vice-Chair Elect; Emmett Winn, Past Chair; Jae-Hwa Shin, Secretary; Meghan Sanders, Secretary Elect; Adam Earnheardt, Publications/Web Editor; Nick Bowman, Graduate Student Representative; Sharon Mazzarella, Rsearch Committee Chair; Rebecca Chory, Research Committee Vice Chair; Jennifer Aubrey, Research Committee Vice Chair Elect; Karyn Riddle, Chair of the Nominations Committee; Mary Beth Earnheardt, Nominations Committee; Rebecca Verser, Nominations Committee; Janellen Hill, Nominations Committee; Cary Horvath, Nominations Committee; Stan Tickton, Legislative Assembly Attendee; Jane Banks, Legislative Assembly Attendee; Sahara Byrne, Resolutions Committee.

The 2008 convention in San Diego promises to be a setting from which the discipline will be propelled forward. The conference will be held from November 21, 2008 through November 24, 2008, and the theme is "unCONVENTIONal!" The division’s officers will be working hard as we gear up for the San Diego conference. If you have any questions concerning the division between now and when we meet in San Diego, please feel free to contact me at holbert.27@osu.edu. Thank you for your interest in the division.

Research Committee Report
Sharon R. Mazzarella, smazzar@clemson.edu
Chair, Research Committee

Now that the 2008 Mass Communication Division program is completed and submitted for approval to NCA, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the 104 (!) paper and panel reviewers for the San Diego Conference. (No, I can’t let anyone know yet if their paper or panel was accepted. NCA has to approve the program first. But you can expect to hear directly from them in early May.)

This year, the division had 174 paper submissions and 19 panel submissions, so we needed every reviewer. While everyone did a fantastic job, I would like to single out Mehdi Semati for reading five papers at the last minute when the original reviewer was unable to complete them. Not only did Mehdi read these papers on extremely short notice, but he gave them thoughtful and constructive reviews.

It was a pleasure to work with all of you and with the Division’s Vice Chair, Travis Dixon, who oversaw this year’s panel review process. Putting together the Division’s program truly is a team effort.

d. Report: Legislative Assembly (MCD Legislative Assembly representatives: Stan Tickton & Jeff Tyus)

  • Unbundling of membership dues and convention registration fees (carryover for last year’s meeting)
  • Proposed new structure for membership dues and convention registration fees passes 76-33 (questions and discussions about this
    - According to the new structure, regular members and sustaining members are now identical which reduces regular membership dues and increases sustaining membership costs, respectively to $165. Student dues remain the same as $60.
    - Both regular members and sustaining members pay for the convention registration fees of $130 (off-site) and $195 (on-site), but students pay for the registration fees of $75 (off-site) and $110 (on-site).
    - It will create $5,000 budget to bring in speakers for future conventions.
    - Review of benefits of NCA membership to members is necessary.
  • Chairs, respondents and designated paper/panel presenters must pre-register for the November 2008 convention by August 6th. In the case of the paper or panel presenter failing to pre-register, the entire paper or panel entry will be deleted with their names from the final conference program.
    - Originally, there was an amendment that those who were first authors have to pay registration fee by credit card, but then there was a motion to make it designated participants. Only the presenter of a multiple-author paper as identified in All Academic needs to pre-register for the conference for the submission to remain on the final conference program. The remaining authors on the multiple-authored work need not pre-register for the conference in order for the submission to remain on the final conference program.
    - Rationale: Last year 400 people attended the conference and brought papers and did not register for the convention. That’s a lot of money that the NCA lost.
    - Concern about the August 6th deadline. People who were away over the summer might forget. It is realistic to the pre-registration date should be moved to the later date. The pre-registration policy recently adopted by NCA may need to be applied to only faculty members, not students.
    - This was extremely controversial and hotly debated but passed and is now a done deal!

5. Planning for the 2008 convention program (Vice Chair-Elect: Travis L. Dixon; Research Committee Vice Chair: Sharon R. Mazzarella)

a. Call for competitive papers and thematic panel proposals for program
sessions distributed

  • 2008 Annual Convention: San Diego, CA, November 21 - 24
  • Convention Theme: “Unconventional” It underscores and reinforces the association’s efforts at outreach and reflects the fact that NCA is now on the radar of important and powerful associations in Washington, DC and throughout the country, and are being sought out to offer expertise at the national level and connect it to partners and experts in other fields for national influence.
  • Paper submission deadline: Feb. 14, 2008
  • It is the policy of NCA that each unit should only accept one paper from any person submitting as first author.
  • Mentorship panel proposals by associate and full professors are requested for assistant and associate professors.
  • Request for paper reviewers; session chairs; and respondents. A competitive paper review form was distributed to sign-up to serve as reviewer. Question: Can people indicate online their willingness to serve as a chair or respondent?

6. Installation of new officers (Chair: J. Emmett Winn)
Lance Holbert as New Chair

7. New Business Proposal

a. Suggestion: We might want to change the bylaws to extend the chairmanship a bit longer in order to make the transition smoother and provide continuity.
b. Suggestion: The institutional membership rate should be raised, but students should get increased benefits and/or reduced rate. There are some institutions that do not have graduate students, so separating the two cases may be considered.
c. Question: Can one submit a paper and serve as a reviewer at the same time?
d. The MCD committee will collect information from the Division members to submit to NCA regarding the new registration policy. The Chair should commission a group to gauge the Division’s opinion on the pre-registration policy and then submit a formal letter with feedback from the members to the NCA national office. It does not have to be voted on next year, but that the final version will be prepared.

8. Adjourn

a. Meeting closed 3:30 p.m.
b. Announcement of reception after the business meeting

Conferences

Academic Research for Media Reform, Minneapolis, June 5
Bob McChesney [rwmcches@uiuc.edu]

This is a quick update and reminder about the symposium for scholars which will take place in Minneapolis on June 5th, a day before the National Conference on Media Reform. The symposium is called “Academic Research for Media Reform,” and the program is now online. We urge you to register and join us there in this unique opportunity to engage in a dialogue between academics and media reform advocates.

We are very excited about this year’s program. It offers an expansive presentation of scholarship on the most pressing issues in the media reform community. The program committee­through a double-blind peer review process­generated 8 sessions of papers submitted by leading academics from the nation's top schools. The sessions will focus on media ownership (and the FCC's research effort), sustainability of independent media, access to dominant platforms, network neutrality, international media reform efforts, and the media reform movement itself.

The symposium also features two special sessions. There will be an opportunity for a roundtable discussion with members of the "future of American telecommunications working group" (www.fact-wg.info). This group is currently designing a new media and telecommunications policy framework for the new administration in 2009. In addition, there will be a session on "copyright and free speech" in which Neil Netanel will present his new book “Copyright's Paradox.”

All registrants to the symposium are eligible for the "early-bird" fare for the NCMR itself -- we urge you to stay for both.

We hope the symposium will be an opportunity to strengthen the ongoing commitment to a fruitful cooperation between the academic and activist worlds as well as to find immediate, practical applications for this critical work.

Books and Chapters

 

Olympic Media: Inside the Biggest Show on Television, London: Routledge, 2008.
Andrew C. Billings

 

News as Entertainment: The Rise of Global Infotainment, Sage.

Daya Thussu

Richly detailed and empirically grounded, this first book-length study of infotainment and its globalization by a leading scholar of global communication offers a comprehensive and critical analysis of this emerging phenomenon. Going beyond - both geographically and theoretically - the ‘dumbing down’ discourse, largely confined to the Anglo-American media, the book argues that infotainment may have an important ideological role, a diversion in which ‘soft news’ masks the hard realities of neoliberal imperialism.

"The Hollywood View: Protecting the Status Quo in Schools Onscreen"
Mary M. Dalton

published the chapter "The Hollywood View: Protecting the Status Quo in Schools Onscreen" in Mirror Images: Popular Culture and Education, eds. Diana Silberman Keller, Zvi Bekerman, Henry A. Giroux, and Nicholas C. Burbules. Peter Lang: New York, 2008.

Transforming Culture: A Model for Faith and Film in Hollywood
Christine Gunn-Danforth
This book examines the cultural mandate as purpose for the church to engage the medium of film. It proposes a practically viable theology of communication that can be utilized to create effective Biblically-based productions and serves as lens to analyze and critique films.  Written by a dual Ph.D. in Communication and Biblical Studies. Wipf and Stock publishers. Release date late 2008 to be announced.

The Essential HBO Reader, Lexington, KY: University Press of Kentucky, 2008
Edited by Gary R. Edgerton and Jeffrey P. Jones

Democratic Communications: Formations, Projects, Possibilities. Lanham, MD: Lexington Books.
James F. Hamilton
This is the first book to take issue with the long-standing assumptions about alternative media and democratic communications and place them in a detailed cultural and historical context. Ranging from prophecy in sixteenth century England to the self-managed projects of critical literacy and social change of today, it assesses the historical heritage, present conditions, and future possibilities of today's remade media landscape for democratic communications.

Sports Mania: Essays on Fandom and the Media in the 21st Century, Jefferson, NC: McFarland, 2008.
Edited by Lawrence W. Hugenberg, Paul M. Haridakis and Adam C. Earnheardt
In these essays, thirty of the leading scholars in sports communication tackle a wide range of subjects, including the ways in which people root for their teams, the consumption of sports information, and the uses of technology to cultivate fan communities. Taking an interdisciplinary approach through the fields of communication, psychology and telecommunications, this collection explores modern fans, their motives and culture, and their identification with sports and individual teams.

Tilted Mirrors: Media Alignment with Political and Social Change – A Community Structure Approach, Cresskill, NJ, Hampton Press, 2007.
John Pollock
Instead of examining the impact of media on society, Tilted Mirrors explores how society shapes media coverage. How do communities affect the way media build different issue perspectives or frames? The book adopts an innovative community structure approach, finding that inequality in cities significantly drives coverage of critical events.

Media, Culture, and Society in Iran: Living with Globalization and the Islamic State, Routledge, 2008.
Edited by Mehdi Semati
Featuring contributions from among the best-known and emerging scholars on Iranian media, culture, society, and politics, this volume uncovers how the existing perspectives on post-revolutionary Iranian society have failed to appreciate the complexity, the paradoxes and the contradictions that characterize life in contemporary Iran, resulting in a general failure to explain and to anticipate its contemporary social and political transformations.
