Jennifer E. Moore's research interests include journalism history, visual communication, digital news preservation and participatory news practices. My work on the nineteenth century illustrated press appears in issues of Journalism History, and I have several chapters in media history collections, including Sensationalism: Murder, Mayhem, Mudslinging, Scandals, and Disasters in 19th-Century Reporting and After the War: The Press in a Changing America, 1865–1900. I am passionate about teaching my students about journalism and media history and help them make connections to our current media environment. I currently serve as the treasurer for the Symposium on the 19th Century Press, the Civil War, and Free Expression, held annually at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. My past national service includes serving as a co-organizer of the Joint Journalism and Communication History Conference (JJCHC) that meets annually in New York City. Michael J.
