2006 Conference Tour - Part II

After a very successful conference double-hitter with Anil Narine last April--where we presented at both the PCA in Atlanta and at the CSA in Arlington, VA over a two week period--I'm attempting a solo-mission of back-to-back conference presentations in Montreal, Quebec.

My first stop will be the Converging in Parallel: Linking Communications Research and Policy in Emerging Canadian Scholarship, from Nov. 9-10 at McGill University. The conference is organized by the The Montreal Media Policy Group, with support from the Beaverbrook Fund for Media@McGill (Mark Raboy) and the SSHRC Strategic Research Cluster on Media Governance. Here, I'll be talking about the use of interdisciplinary research in child-specific communications policy, and participating on a panel about "reconfiguring regulation" in the age of media convergence.

The second (overlapping) is the Trials and Tribulations: Negotiating research methods in cyberspace conference, from Nov. 10-11 at Concordia. I've written about this conference in a previous post, but you can now access the program online. Here, I'll have a chance to meet two of the other participants of the Feminist Media Studies "Gender and Games" debate I participated in earlier this month!

I'm also in discussions to present a guest lecture about video game violence and the surrounding debates at Dawson College...Details to follow.
