CMF @ CMC – Academic Connections 

CMF Executive Member Colin Ward reports:

The Children’s Media Conference provided an excellent opportunity for the second meeting of the Children's Media Foundation's Academic Advisory Board, with Professor Jackie MarshProfessor Lydia PlowmanProfessor Jeanette Steemers, and children’s media analyst David Kleeman all in Sheffield for the conference. The group discussed the role of the AAB and how it will function, with Jayne Kirkham from the CMF Board joining the meeting to explain how the AAB can help to inform the CMF’s political campaigning. There was some lively debate around how the CMF can, in turn, support academic research into children and their media, which included an idea for a ‘Research Slam’ event at CMC sponsored by the CMF.

All the more reason to give some serious thought to donating now to help us make things happen!
