Conference 2023 Information Pack

Dear all, 

Ola and I are looking forward to welcoming you at the 2023 JETREG symposium, hosted by the Department of Journalism Studies, University of Sheffield, UK taking place on 15-16 June 2023.

It’s great to see that the majority of speakers will be joining us in person. A map and directions and address of the venue can be found here. For everyone who is not able to join us on campus and is presenting online, I will send a separate email with instructions on how to present on the day. If your plans change in any way, please contact me as soon as possible so I can make adjustments to the programme. Most of you have already made your travel and accommodation arrangements but if you need any help or guidance, please let me know. 

We will provide refreshments and lunch on both days and you have noted your dietary requirements at registration. If you haven’t, please let me know as I will need to amend the catering order. 

As you have seen from the programme, we have a tightly packed schedule with lots of interesting presentations. We request that you present for 10-12 minutes maximum to allow time for questions and discussion, and to ensure that we stay on time. This is really important because we have our keynote, special issue launch and the theatre performance on Thursday evening. This is going to be a professional performance with press attending and we are very excited about it! (See attached press release)

Please bring your presentations on a USB stick and upload them in this folder no later than June 10. I will grant you access as soon as you request it. 

Finally, one of our PhD students, Tom Parkin, will be making a podcast about the JETREG work presented at the symposium and he will be recording some of the proceedings, and asking you for very short interviews about your work. We hope that’s OK with you but if you have any questions, do let me know. 

That’s it for now and we look forward to seeing you in Sheffield in June! 

Sincerely yours, 

Lada and Ola
