UTC Hosts Symposium on Civil War and the 19th Century Press
CHATTANOOGA - UTC will host the seventh annual "Symposium on the 19th Century Press, the Civil War, and Free Expression" Nov. 11-13.
The conference is sponsored by the UTC West Chair of Excellence and the UTC Department of Communication.
"When I organized this conference I was looking for a journalism conference that would be a perfect fit for Chattanooga. Throughout the years scholars from across the country have come to recognize this conference as a fully legitimate, refereed research conference that they can submit their best work to. To have people on this level coming to Chattanooga and giving us their best work in a competitive research environment is wonderful," said David Sachsman, West Chair of Excellence and Professor of Communications at UTC.
According to Sachsman, The Civil War and the Press, a book of selected papers from the first five symposiums will be published this winter.
All paper sessions are free and open to the public. Parking at UTC is
available in the Fifth Street garage at no charge.
