TWO good news for In Press Global!
On 8 November 2017, the In Press Global group was honoured to have Datuk Seri Dr. Salleh Said Keruak, Minister of Communication and Multimedia officiate the website, as the first official research website managed by post graduate students from the Faculty of Communication and Media Studies.
The In Press Global group accomplished a double achievement as the website has been endorsed by the Faculty of Communication and Media Studies on an earlier date. This led to a greater milestone whereby the event, “The Way Forward Towards Research Excellence” received permission to be held in the Parliament House of Kuala Lumpur.
According to the founder and advisor of In Press Global, Associate Professor Dr. Sara Chinnasamy, this event was conducted with the aim of grooming post-graduate students to excel in research culture.
This event also serves as a platform for academics and post graduate students alike to exchange innovative ideas pertaining social media, an objective in the International Communication’s (COM 733) course. Additionally, the public could benefit from reading articles published in the website as there are analyses of various current issues.
Besides the officiation of the website, the event witnessed a book launch authored by Associate Professor Dr. Sara Chinnasamy herself, entitled “New Media Political Engagement and Participation in Malaysia” published by the renowned academic publisher, Routledge.
