NU-Q presents research projects at US journalism conference

NU-Q faculty, staff, and a student are presenting a series of research projects at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) conference, which is held annually in the US.
“As the largest and most prestigious organisation for journalism and mass communication scholars, the AEJMC provides NU-Q with an opportunity to present the work being done by our faculty, staff, and students to a global audience,” said Everette E. Dennis, dean and CEO. “Each year, we also have the opportunity to present our annual study on the use of media in the Middle East.”
Dennis will address a session at the conference on “The Life and Legacy of Melvin L DeFleur,” discussing his longtime collaboration with DeFleur, a renowned media scholar. Dennis and DeFleur co-authored a leading text titled Understanding Mass Communication for more than 30 years.
This year’s session on the media study - Five Years of Media Use & Public Opinion in the Arab Region: Findings and Reflections from a Multinational Longitudinal Survey – will be moderated by NU-Q’s Senior Associate Dean Klaus Schoenbach and will feature NU-Q Professor Justin D Martin and Marium Saeed, research study coordinator.
The study, which will be released in September, examines media use patterns, content preferences, and attitudes toward issues such as censorship, freedom of speech, and cultural preservation across the region. Over the years, the studies have achieved widespread recognition.
