C. Edwin Baker Award for the Advancement of Scholarship on Media, Markets and Democracy

Communication Law & Policy and Philosophy of Communication Divisions

The Baker Award recognizes work that has made significant contributions to the development, reach and influence of such scholarship. While the awards committee favors research that consists of multiple projects and publications that have made a clear, coherent and sustained contribution to the advancement of such scholarship over time, single works and/or activities which have been highly influential in the field may also qualify someone for nomination. More specifically, nominees for this award will have accomplished one or more of the following:

·         opened up new theoretical and/or methodological territory in research on any aspect of the interrelations between media, markets and democracy;

·         made other important contributions to the advancement of scholarship on these inter-relations;

·         engaged in activism that advanced scholarship on these inter-relations.

The Baker Award was established in 2010 through an endowed fund created from the estate of Professor C Edwin Baker (1947-2009), who was the Nicholas F. Gallichio Professor of Law and Communication at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and is intended to honor the enormous contribution made by Professor Baker to communications scholarship. The Divisions gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Professor Baker's sister Dr Nancy Baker.
