March 31, 2020
Caitlin Cieslik-Miskimen, an assistant professor of journalism and mass media in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, was recognized for her scholarship by the International Communication Association (ICA), an international organization advancing the scholarly study of human communication. Her paper, “Navigating the Urban-Rural Divide: The Small-City Newspaper in the American Historical Narrative,” was named a top paper in the communication history division. Cieslik-Miskimen will virtually present her paper at the 70th Annual ICA Conference in May. Her article provides a historical case study of 20th century small-city newspapers, and how these papers created a unique print product to the needs of places eager to shed their provincial pasts and embrace a metropolitan future.
