This panel will present three scholars' perspectives on the role of "life writing" (auto/biography) in communications studies. The investigation of life writing complicates and challenges the master-narratives of many communication theories and research methodologies. Considering "who" is writing about "whom," as well as how auto/biography is crafted, challenges us to think differently about communication. Life writing narrates important social, ideological, and cultural issues from an individual's point of view over time.

Student Spotlight


The Department of Communication, Media and Film would like to congratulate our graduate students on the success of their conference in Banff this past weekend. Presentations were of high quality: some detailing accomplished research, some explaining research in progress and some explaining possible future interests and areas of investigation. Their passion for their research was clearly displayed!  

Spectacular Instability Graduate Conference

Sponsored by Communication and Media Studies Graduate Program, University of Calgary

“The theme of our first interdisciplinary graduate student conference is ‘spectacular instability.’ From changes in the practice of journalism, the proliferation of social movements, growing concern over climate change, to the price of oil as a paramount indicator of Canadian prosperity, this inaugural conference seeks to promote discussion regarding the notion of instability in our times. Graduate student papers from all relevant disciplines welcome.”
