CALL FOR PAPERS
The Center for C-SPAN Scholarship & Engagement (CCSE) in the Brian Lamb School of Communication announces the call for papers for its 2022 Fall Research Conference to be held at Purdue University on October 17-18, 2022. Each year, we host a conference at which ten scholars or groups of scholars’ present papers using the C-SPAN Archives. This year the theme is Communication in Transition. There are so many new ways that political leaders are using communication techniques that we invite papers that emphasize this theme. All projects chosen for presentation must utilize the C-SPAN Video Library for analysis.
To submit a proposal, go to docs.lib.purdue.edu/ccse and use the submission tool. Proposals must be submitted by May 1, 2022. Each accepted paper will receive a stipend of $2000. Participants also are encouraged to use the C-SPAN Archives Application Programming Interface (API) to extract text and data from the Archives.
Edited papers from this conference will be published in The Year in C-SPAN Archives Research. Papers from the seven previous conferences are available for free downloading at the submission site, docs.lib.purdue.edu/ccse. Participants are encouraged to consult previous volumes and papers for ideas and citations.
The conference will be held in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Protect Purdue guidelines. Information on in-person, hybrid, and online options for this conference will be announced at a later date.
For questions about paper submission, please contact Professor Robert X. Browning, firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about the 2022 Conference, please contact CCSE Managing Director Andrea Langrish, email@example.com
