History Book Award Nominations

AEJMC’s History Division is soliciting entries for its annual award for the best journalism and mass communication history book of 2017.

The winning author will receive a plaque and a $500 prize at the August 2018 AEJMC conference at the Renaissance in Washington, D.C., where the author will give a short talk about the experience of research and discovery during the book’s composition.

The competition is open to any author of a media history book regardless of whether he or she belongs to AEJMC or the History Division.

Only first editions with a 2017 copyright date will be accepted. Edited volumes, articles and monographs will be excluded because they qualify for the Covert Award, another AEJMC History Division competition.

Entries must be received by Feb. 2, 2018. Submit four copies of each book — along with the author’s mailing address, telephone number and email address — to John P. Ferré, AEJMC History Book Award Chair, Department of Communication, 310 Strickler Hall, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY 40292.

Please contact John Ferré at 502-852-8167 or ferre@louisville.edu with any questions.
