gnovis, Georgetown University’s Journal of Communication, Culture & Technology – Press Release

The Car Barn – The spring 2011 issue of gnovis, Georgetown University’s peer-reviewed Journal of Communication, Culture & Technology, is now live. The issue, available exclusively in digital form at, was the journal’s most selective to date. In total, more than sixty authors from around the world submitted work; ultimately, only twelve were selected for publication.

The works contained within the issue are as diverse and interesting as they are relevant, featuring studies on Facebook’s memorialization policy for newly deceased users, “the myth of safe spectatorship in post-9/11 America,” and the role of SMS text messaging in fostering international development. The authors hail from three countries across two continents and represent such diverse institutions as the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, New York University, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Toronto. The issue also features the work of Georgetown students in both the English and CCT master’s programs.

“To say we are thrilled with this issue would be a tremendous understatement,” said incoming Editor-in-Chief Lauren Barnett. “So much work and so much passion went into this issue, and it shows on every page. I am thrilled that we can finally share this creation with our friends and family here on the Hilltop, and with people everywhere.”

The Spring 2011 issue of gnovis is available now.
