Traditionally, journalism history has been studied from a national perspective. However, journalism has never truly been bounded by geography. Practices, technologies, and journalists have moved around the globe, bringing new ideas with them and taking more new ideas along when they move on. Practices have emerged in one place and spread around the globe since before Gutenberg invented movable type.

This inaugural conference on Transnational Journalism History is seeking papers that deal with any aspect of the subject; however, they are particularly interested in work that examines the flow of those journalistic developments, people, and phenomena between Ireland and the United States. The work from this conference, and a second one anticipated for 2017, will form the basis of at least two volumes, one of which will deal with the flow of news, news personnel, and news developments between Ireland and the United States. The second conference and volume will be more global in scope.

The conference will be held on February 25–27, 2016 at Georgia Regents University in Augusta, Ga.
