The International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) is profoundly saddened by the death of Jesús Martín-Barbero, a leading communication scholar who made his home in Colombia since 1963. Our 2017 conference in Cartagena featured a plenary session dedicated to his work. Our condolences to his friends, family and colleagues.
IAMCR is pleased to announce that the 2021 Prize in memory of Stuart Hall will be awarded to Hanna E. Morris for her paper Constructing ‘Rights’ and ‘Wrongs’ in Climate Media Discourse Through the Prism of American Exceptionalism. An honourable mention was also granted to Dr Wunpini Fatimata Mohammed.
IAMCR emphatically rejects threats that unknown persons have made publicly in Barranquilla, Colombia to various individuals and their families committed to building peace and coexistence, and working with people and communities to reach social agreements and promote the development of their city and region.
Several of IAMCR's sections and working groups will be holding online elections for their leadership teams from 16 June until 14 September, 2021. Current members of IAMCR who are also registered as members of the section or working group, are eligible to stand for a position and to vote. The deadline to submit candidacies is 16 May.
