Venue Changed for Joint Journalism History Conference: JJCHC Set for University of Maryland, College Park, on March 15, 2024

Heavy Construction at New York University Forces Conference Move to Washington, D.C., Area

The 2024 Joint Journalism and Communication History Conference, previously scheduled at New York University, has been moved to the University of Maryland in College Park. The conference date remains the same – March 15.

New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute recently informed conference organizers it just learned that loud, heavy construction would be taking place in the venue on the conference date, and that, unfortunately, the construction could not be canceled or changed.

The University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism has stepped up to ensure that the conference can be held this year. College Park, just outside Washington, D.C., is also home to National Archives II, a key research site for historians.
