MEDIA ETHICS COLLOQUIUM FELLOWSHIPS

Fellowships are available for the media ethics colloquium on "Caring and the Media," to be held in May 2005 at the University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon. The Colloquium is the sixth in a decade-long series, the goal of which is to enhance scholarship in media ethics. It is sponsored by the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication, Brigham Young University, the Journal of Mass Media Ethics, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Inc., and others. Previous colloquia in the series have dealt with the ethics of persuasion, the search for a global information ethic, the ethics of virtual reality, the state of ethics across the professions, and ethics and politics. Selected scholars will receive an honorarium and all expenses. Papers will be published in the Journal of Mass Media Ethics in 2006. Proposals should address the application of theories of care and compassion to media practices Examples might be the potential for the use of the Ethic of care in various media (news journalism, advertising, public relations, etc.); the Feminist debate over objectivity versus subjectivity in reporting; the idea of reflexivity applied to media practices; Religious applications of compassion and love in media, etc. Applicants may suggest other topics as well. Fellows will be asked to work in two-person teams, and a total of six teams will be selected. Applicants may apply as individuals (in which case Colloquium organizers will pair them with another applicant) or as part of already formed teams. In the selection process, preference will be given to teams that either combine disciplines or include a junior scholar working with a more senior scholar. These guidelines are general and should not be construed as exhaustive or exclusive. Applications for fellowships should include a brief (500 word) abstract of a paper proposal, a curriculum vitae and, if appropriate, a notation of the desired team member.
