Media, War and Conflict Resolution

This exciting scholarly event features renowned keynote speakers and involves our faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, conference participants from the U.S. and abroad, and members of our local, state, and regional community. 

The Conference on War, Media and Conflict Resolution (CWMCR) is affiliated with the newly established Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) minor at BGSU, and is being presented by the Department of Journalism and also coordinated by faculty from the School of Communication Studies and PACS.    

Conference Themes
Our presenters will discuss subjects from interdisciplinary perspectives to explore and contest themes about the media’s role in the current geopolitical context.  Accomplished faculty members, graduate students and professionals from the media will explore the relationship among media, war, and conflict resolution historically and as they relate to current events nationally and internationally. The goal of this conference is to question the paradigms and practices associated with the study of media as it relates to wars, conflicts and the processes involved in ending or resolving wars and other conflicts.   

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors, without whom this conference would not have been possible!
