CU Boulder CMCI students and faculty from four departments represented 16 divisions and interest groups during this year’s Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication conference, held virtually from Aug. 4 through 7.
The 104th-annual conference included 21 CMCI scholars, who presented 22 peer-reviewed papers, served on panels and lead workshops.
Department of Journalism Associate Professor Pat Ferrucci accepted two first-place faculty paper awards at the conference––one for “Covering Sports, When There’s No Sports: COVID, Market Orientation, Paywalls and The Athletic,” and the other for “Understanding Social Media in Journalism Practice: A Typology,” published with Journalism PhD student Fahad Humayun.
