Community Initiative: CSCM Research Talks
The Center for Sports Communication & Media is excited to announce a new initiative. The Center is launching the Center for Sports Communication & Media Research Brownbag Series. Center Director Dr. Michael Butterworth has enthusiasm for what the Center can achieve for the scholarly community within the Center. He believes that “Sharing our research is one of the ways the Center for Sports Communication & Media can cultivate collaboration between the departments and schools in the Moody College of Communication. It also helps us build a foundation for making our work more visible in our various scholarly organizations and communities."
The purpose, scope and schedule for the series follows.
Purpose and Aim: The Center for Sports Communication & Media’s Research Brownbag Series has a purpose that is largely scholarly. The aim of our research brownbag series is threefold. The brownbag series will provide:
- A way for researchers, namely center affiliates to connect and create community,
- A platform to disseminate research to an intimate yet interdisciplinary audience who can provide constructive feedback,
- A a way to showcase the important research our center affiliates are doing and providing content for the Center for communication and public relations
Scope: The scope of this series, at least in its inaugural year is primarily internal; largely to bring together scholars across the college and university. The series is especially welcoming to graduate students who have any interest in sport-related research as pertaining to communication, media, and related aspects of sport.
