Carl J. Couch Internet Research Award 2008

Sponsored by the Carl Couch Center for Social and Internet Research

The Carl Couch Center issues an annual call for student-authored papers to be considered for Carl J. Couch Internet Research Award. The Couch Center welcomes both theoretical and empirical papers that (1) apply symbolic interactionist approaches to Internet studies, (2) demonstrate interactive relationships between social interaction and communication technologies as advocated by Couch, and/or (3) develop symbolic interactionist concepts in new directions. Papers will be evaluated based on the quality of (1) mastery of Symbolic Interactionist approaches and concepts and Couch's theses, (2) originality, (3) organization, (4) presentation, and (5) advancement of knowledge.

Evaluation will be administered by a Review Committee of four:

Dr. Mark D. Johns, Luther College, Decorah, Iowa
Dr. Lori Kendall, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Dr. Annette Markham, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
Dr. Dennis Waskul, Minnesota State University, Mankato

Competition is open to graduate or undergraduate students of all disciplines. Works that are published or accepted for publication are not eligible for award consideration. Entries should not exceed 30 pages (approximately 7500 words) in length, including references and appendices. Limit of one entry per student per year.

The top three papers will receive Couch Awards to be presented at the 2008 meeting of the Association of Internet Researchers (aoir.org) at the IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The top paper will be awarded a certificate and a cash prize of $500 US, runner up will receive a certificate and a cash prize of $300 US, and a third paper will receive a certificate and a cash prize of $100 US. All three authors will be invited to present their work at a session of the AoIR conference, October 15-19, 2008 in Copenhagen.

Those interested should send a copy of their paper, with a 100-word abstract, electronically to Mark D. Johns at [email protected] Application deadline is April 28, 2008. Notification of award will be sent by June 16.
