  • The Asper Fellowship in Media

    2021-03-16

    The Asper Fellowship in Media,

    Faculty of Information and Media Studies,

    Western University, London, Ontario, Canada

    The Faculty of Information and Media Studies (FIMS) at Western University invites applications for the Asper Fellowship in Media. The role of the Fellow is to promote public discussion of a range of issues related to the nature of Canadian media. In reckoning with ongoing activism and policy responses to racism and inclusion, our current Asper Fellowship emphasizes the intersection of media and racialized groups in Canada and abroad, including Black communities, Indigenous communities, communities of colour and new immigrant communities of colour. We seek applications from scholars and journalists who study or produce media for and about racialized groups in mainstream or independent contexts.

  • CJC Playlists

    2021-01-27

    We are very pleased to announce our new initiative, CJC Playlists!

    CJC Playlists are curated collections of articles that are drawn from the journal's open access archive. We are inviting scholars to develop playlists around a topic, theme, or keyword of their choosing and to introduce their collection as a constellation of work that speaks in some way to our present moment. We hope to encourage a sense of historicity, inventive new alignments for scholarship and have a little fun in the process.

    You can access our first playlists here (just click on the black arrow to access a track within a playlist):

    Melissa Aronczyk, Promotional Culture

    Rianka Singh, Curating Care

    Please find a full list of our published and forthcoming playlists here!

    If you are interested in curating a playlist, please be in touch with Chris Russill, Editor, Canadian Journal of Communication, at editor@cjc-online.ca
