School of Communication Grad Student Presents at Media Communication Conference

The Third International Conference on Communication & Media Studies took place from October 18-19, 2018 at the University of California at Berkeley. The attendees include leaders in the field, as well as emerging scholars, who travel to the conference from all corners of the globe and represent a broad range of disciplines and perspectives. A variety of presentation options and session types offer opportunities for attendees to share their work, discuss key issues in the field, and build relationships with attendees.

For Steven Pope, this was the perfect place for him to give his first conference presentation. “As a Master’s student it was certainly a learning experience that I will not take for granted.” Pope says. “I had the pleasure to give a short 5 minute pitch-presentation before 40 people and my main 20 minute presentation before 20 people who were interested in my topic.”

Pope presented his work on the Critical Political Economy of the Media piece regarding the documentary TIME: the Kalief Browder Story. “I am endlessly grateful that Dr. Jennifer Proffitt helped me conduct my research and grateful that the School of Communication and Congress of Graduate Students were able to support me as I traveled across the country.”
