In anticipation of the 2023 AEJMC conference in Washington, DC this August, we would like to invite you to save 40% on the recent books on journalism history, media studies, and communications featured here—including the inaugural titles from our new series, Journalism and Democracy, edited by Kathy Roberts Forde and Sid Bedingfield.

If you have projects underway that seem like a good match for our list, we would encourage you to connect with editor in chief, Matt Becker ([email protected]), to schedule an in-person or virtual meeting.

Fine print: promo code MAS084 expires on September 30, 2023.
