International Association for Literary Journalism Studies (Minneapolis, USA)

May 7, 2015 @ 8:00 am - May 9, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

“Literary Journalism: Media, Meaning, Memory”

The Tenth International Conference for Literary Journalism Studies (IALJS-10)

The University of St. Thomas

Department of Communication and Journalism

Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.

7-9 May 2015

The conference will be held at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, U.S.A.

The conference hopes to be a forum for scholarly work of both breadth and depth in the field of literary journalism, and all research methodologies are welcome, as are research on all aspects of literary journalism and/or literary reportage. For the purpose of scholarly delineation, our definition of literary journalism is “journalism as literature” rather than “journalism about literature.”

The International Association for Literary Journalism Studies is a multi-disciplinary learned society whose essential purpose is the encouragement and improvement of scholarly research and education in Literary Journalism. As an association in a relatively recently defined field of academic study, it is our agreed intent to be both explicitly inclusive and warmly supportive of a variety of scholarly approaches.
