In addition, 41 Missouri journalism scholars served as moderators, discussants, panelists and workshop leaders during the four-day conference attended by more than 2,500 scholars from the U.S. and abroad.

The annual paper competition attracted 1,801 submissions from some of the top educators and students in journalism and mass communication from around the world. Of this number, 899, about half, were accepted for presentation at the conference. Roughly 12.7 percent of all accepted papers had a Missouri School of Journalism connection.

Eleven top paper awards were earned 10 divisions: Cultural and Critical Studies Division, Electronic News Division, Korean American Communication Association, Law and Policy Division, Magazine Division, Mass Communication and Society Division, Media Ethics Division, Minorities and Communication Division, Newspaper and Online News Division, and the Visual Communication Division.

Of the 95 Missouri journalism faculty, students and alumni who authored papers, 44 are current faculty and students. This is a level of participation that Associate Dean for Graduate Studies Esther Thorson calls “very impressive.” Thorson added that in the last 20 years Missouri journalism has gone from almost no presence at AEJMC to the dominant one.

“Our faculty, alumni, and students should feel proud of themselves for all they contribute to social science research,” she said.

Founded in 1912 in Chicago, AEJMC is an international nonprofit organization composed of more than 3,700 faculty, students and administrators at journalism and mass communication schools from more than 30 different countries. AEJMC is dedicated to providing the means necessary to journalism and mass communication educators and students to foster generations of practitioners and educators dedicated to better professional practices and a more informed public.

Current faculty, students and alumni are identified in bold face. Missouri journalism degrees are listed for alumni.
