March 22, 2017, 11:30am-1:00pm

University Place Conference Center, Room 200

Ulf Jonas Bjork, Ph.D., Department of Journalism and Public Relations

This study presents a general history of how journalism as an emerging profession became internationally organized over the past 120 years, seen mainly through the associations founded to promote the interests of journalists around the world.

The annual Reading at the Table series provides an opportunity for members of the IUPUI community to celebrate published books written by IUPUI faculty or staff. During each luncheon, the featured author/editor will read from his or her work and open the floor to discussion. Seating is limited; registration is encouraged and can be completed on the campus Events Page. Walk-ins will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis—if space is available. Purchase of a buffet-style lunch for $13.00 (dessert and soft drinks not included) is required to attend this event.
