The Journalism Studies Graduate Student Colloquium brings together PhD candidates working in journalism studies with experienced scholars in the field. The Colloquium is part of the Journalism Studies Division’s commitment to academic mentorship and will be held as a preconference in conjunction with the ICA 2019 Annual Conference in Washington D.C., USA. Its goal is to contribute actively to the professional development of young scholars by giving them an opportunity to present and discuss their research in a constructive and international atmosphere. Participating graduate students will receive project-specific feedback from recognized experts in the field, as well as general career development advice. The Colloquium will thus provide the opportunity to meet experts as well as fellow PhD candidates from different backgrounds working on related topics.

The Colloquium will be based on thesis-related work submitted by the participant PhD candidates. Each participating graduate student will have an experienced scholar responding to her or his paper. In addition, the Colloquium will feature a discussion with senior scholars about one of the topics related to publishing in international journals and career strategies, grant applications and career development.

The Colloquium is open to PhD candidates working on topics concerned with theory, research, and professional education in journalism.
