Hello Everyone,

Below are a few reminders of all of the approaching deadlines:


Reminder ASA 2015 in Chicago: ASA’s submission deadline is *January 7th* at
3:00 pm EST.

This year the CITASA section has two open sessions on any aspect of
Communication, Media, and/or Information Technologies. We also have our
section round tables.

In addition, members may be interested in regular sessions that are being
held on Media Sociology, Internet and Society, and Technology.

Also, please renew your ASA and section memberships if you haven’t already.


Please see the updated call for submissions to Emerald Studies in Media and
Communication <http://www.emeraldmediastudies.com/Calls---Volumes.html>
(also attached at the end of this email).


We have been working on a new website <http://citasa.info/>! It is not
quite finished yet but all of the important and up-to-date information can
be located there. We'll have more info about the site out soon. Most
recently, the "Awards" page has been updated to reflect the 2014 winners.
You can also find the current *call for nominations* there (and attached at
the end of this email).


The upcoming Spring CITASA newsletter will include a section for
announcements and other timely information. Announcements can include (but
aren't limited to) upcoming grant or fellowship applications,
good news (e.g. getting tenure or promotion to full professor), upcoming
conferences of interest, and job announcements (as long as they have
already appeared in the ASA job bank).

If you are interested in sharing an announcement for the newsletter, please
send your announcements and other timely information to Robyn Keith at
robynakeith at utexas.edu no later than Wednesday, January 7, 2015
