CSCA 2013 Convention - Media Studies Interest Group Reminders

Dear Media Studies Interest Group folks,

Our annual meeting is almost here! Pre-registration is now open for the CSCA conference in Kansas City. You can register here:
You can also make hotel reservations here:
I hope that you will make time to attend some of MSIG’s panels this year. We will have a special program honoring Samuel Becker, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of Iowa, who passed away in November 2012. The session will be on Friday, April 5 at 4-5:15 PM. Several of his former colleagues and students will be sharing memories and reflecting on his contributions to the discipline and our interest group. I hope you can attend – and if you wish, wear a “bow tie for Becker.”

Our Top Papers panel will be held on Saturday April 6 at 9:30 AM, with the MSIG business meeting immediately after.

Many thanks to all of you for submitting, reviewing, and agreeing to chair or respond. I look forward to seeing you in Kansas City!
