CMF's Dawn Johnston and Lisa Stowe were featured in CBC News Calgary - Food and The City for their work in creating the Communal Table Project, which was inspired by the success of their Food Culture course and subsequent Study Abroad Program.
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.”
