The International Association for Media and Communication Research – 
IAMCR – invites applications from graduate students and early-career 
scholars for a prize in memory of Herbert I. Schiller, to be awarded at 
the IAMCR annual conference (July 7-11 2019) in Madrid, Spain 
<https://iamcr.org/madrid2019/>. Applicants must be current members of 

The IAMCR prize in memory of Herbert I. Schiller was established at 
IAMCR's Singapore Conference in 2000 to celebrate his lasting 
contribution to communications scholarship and to remember his work in 
helping to establish IAMCR as a open, hospitable and vital space of 
debate, as one of the founders of the Political Economy Section and as 
Vice President of the Association.

Herbert embodied the very best traditions of intellectual life, as a 
scholar, as an influential writer, as an engaged critic and public 
orator, and above all, as an inspirational teacher who encouraged 
younger scholars to develop work that challenges accepted orthodoxies 
and centers of power and opens up new questions for analysis and debate.

The deadline for submission is 7 April 2019.
