About the Symposium

The School of Journalism and Mass Communications will host the second biennial Media & Civil Rights History Symposium on March 21-23, 2013. This event brings together civil rights and media historians to share scholarly knowledge on the vital relationships between civil rights movements and issues and various types of public communication in the modern world. We welcome scholars from various disciplines, and we invite work that approaches civil rights and media history from a range of contexts, perspectives, and periods.
