Jerry Falwell was one of the first Christian televangelists in the United States. The purpose of this teaching panel is on how to prepare students reporting issues that interact between science and religion.
Sometimes, the reporting of science and religion is harmonious. Prophetic figures are often seen as healers, and so religious figures may inspire health practitioners and health communities. This perspective manifests itself in religiously affiliated hospitals, as demonstrated in Missouri with both the Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Christian Hospital in St.
Other times, religious groups are targeted with misinformation, as demonstrated in a New York Times story about Russian bots spreading misinformation about vaccines. Some religious groups also make headlines because their beliefs about health issues like breastfeeding, circumcision and birth control may conflict with current scientific practices and norms. The purpose of this proposal is to involve individuals from the Communicating Science, Health, Environment, Risk Division and the Religion and Media Interest Group on a panel that shares various perspectives.
Panelists will share their experience with classroom activities and case studies that prepare students to address the challenges of reporting on the conflict between science and religion. The Religion and Media Interest Group invites submission of research papers on topics that incorporate themes related to religion and media. The interest group promotes the study of media and religion within the context of the overall mission of AEJMC, which emphasizes scholarship, teaching and professional freedom and responsibility.
RMIG will consider papers using quantitative, qualitative or historical research methods and accepts any recognized citation style, although APA is preferred. The maximum length for research papers is 25 pages, excluding endnotes and tables. To be considered for the Top Paper competition, please specify on the cover page of the paper whether it is a faculty or student submission.
All AEJMC divisions, interest groups and commission paper submissions must abide by this rule without exception. Paper submitters should try to submit at least 48 hours before the deadline so they can check to make sure that the uploaded document does not contain any self-identifying information in its properties.

For fellow workers stuck behind the same computer terminal in the same stuffy office every day while you jaunt the world, city or county? Submissions should discuss exemplary teaching practices, their success in the classroom, along with an explanation of observed student outcomes.

Welcome to the fall Newsletter. By Paul Glader. Are your students ready for a journalism experience in New York City with a religion and media studies component? NYCJ has been an amazing springboard for young journalists from our 32 partner schools, with students landing internships and jobs at outlets such as Newsweek, American Banker and Fox News in NYC after the program.
And students from any college can attend even if their school is not a partner. Journalism students from religious backgrounds Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, other often appreciate the semester that gives them a supercharged journalism internship and studying experience in NYC. It provides this in a context that helps the students think about their religion and faith and how that relates to their work in media and journalism.
