Presentations will be eligible for submission to the 2015 Volume IV of Emerald Studies in Media and Communication entitled [New] Media Cultures (see www.emeraldmediastudies.com/).

Space is limited. The deadline for submitting an abstract is March 1, 2014 (notification by March 15). Please send submissions including your name, email, and an abstract of 200-750 words outlining your research to: citasasymposium at gmail.com by March 1st.
