BEA continues to expand its research presence by sponsoring a Mini-Symposium at BEA On Location in Boulder this coming October. The theme of the Mini-Symposium is political communication, mirroring the topic of the national BEA Symposium in April 2020. Our goals for the Mini-Symposium include promoting the national Symposium and expanding research opportunities about media literacy at the regional level.
In addition to research and production competitions, this conference will include a series of field trips and hands-on training sessions on research techniques and the latest software.

BEA Members: $125 (Non-Members: $175)
