2021 AEJMC Conference

Dear MMME Members,

I hope everyone is safe and healthy. This message shares some important information for the upcoming 2021 AEJMC conference.

The 2021 AEJMC Conference will be held as a virtual event.

The AEJMC Board of Directors has carefully evaluated the climate related to the COVID-19 pandemic. After studying all possible data, the Board of Directors has decided to hold the 2021 AEJMC Conference in a virtual format. AEJMC has heard all of your wonderful suggestions for virtual modality; many of those will be implemented in order to make this year’s virtual conference a truly enriching and rewarding experience.

If you were hesitant to submit papers because of the pandemic and travel restrictions, please feel free to submit your papers to the AEJMC conference. The following links show the paper call and guidelines:

Media Management, Economics, and Entrepreneurship Division Paper Call
2021 AEJMC Uniform Paper Guideline
2021 AEJMC Extended Abstract Call

The Media Management, Economics, and Entrepreneurship Division will exploit the virtual modality to enrich our conference experience and engage more scholars.

Our division members and I greatly miss seeing everyone face-to-face, but our safety and health are top priorities. Although this year’s AEJMC conference is virtual, we know that virtual modality can provide us an opportunity to enrich our conference experience. The MMEE Division will exploit the virtual conference modality to engage more scholars without geographical restrictions. As media industries are becoming more globalized, it is important for us to understand global perspectives by interacting with scholars from varying cultures and backgrounds. The MMEE Division plans to reach out to media management, economics, and entrepreneurship scholars in the U.S., nearly 200 scholars outside the U.S., and other regional and international conferences to engage media scholars around the world.

Social media can help us keep up-to-date about developments in our field.

Face-to-face communications have been reduced due to the pandemic; we all miss in-person interactions with colleagues and students, and sometimes feel isolated. The MMEE Division believes that we can keep our conversation going by using social media platforms to engage our division members. Recently, the division launched a LinkedIn Group called AEJMC Media Management, Economics & Entrepreneurship. Compared to other social media platforms, this LinkedIn Group is advantageous in that it enables our members to share long-form content with other scholars in the same field. Please join the MMEE Division’s LinkedIn Group to share conference paper calls, journal special calls, job openings, your research findings, and the materials that will be helpful for teaching. The Division welcomes posts from our members as long as the information benefits our members. If you know students, faculty, and industry professionals who are interested in media managements, economics and entrepreneurship, please invite them to join our LinkedIn Group.

For the 2021 AEJMC conference, the MMEE Division will offer panels that touch upon timely and important issues.

The MMEE Division will hold two preconference workshops; one of the workshops will provide you with a Python data analytics training opportunity, and the other focuses on remote teaching. Also, the Division will organize the following research, teaching, and PF&R panels with our members:

  • News in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
  • Textual Data Analysis and Mining in an Era of Big Data
  • Global Video Streaming War: Competition, Business Models, Consumer Behavior and Local OTTs
  • How to Prepare Students for Cross-platform Media Sales Careers
  • Integrating Product Management into a Media Curriculum
  • Audience is King: Audiences and Analytics in Class Practice
  • Building the Walls: Paywalls and Reduced Print Schedules as Means to Maintain Profitability
  • Newsroom Workers Unite

If you have any questions about the 2021 AEJMC conference or the MMEE Division, please contact Jiyoung Cha at jycha(at)sfsu.edu or Miao Guo at mmguo(at)bsu.edu

Please stay healthy and safe.

Best regards,

Jiyoung Cha, Ph.D.
Head, Media Management, Economics and Entrepreneurship Division
