“I am putting together a panel for the 2013 WSCA [Western Speech Communication Association] conference. This panel seeks to create space to dialogue about strategies for teaching intercultural communication that will prepare students to understand, respond to, and potentially address emerging ethnic, racial, and religious conflicts manifesting both globally and locally. I seek teacher-scholars willing to share creative pedagogical and theoretical leaps you are making in your intercultural communication courses to engage students and to equip them to effectively and pragmatically negotiate this 21st century moment that is characterized by instability, conflict, and sociocultural shifts. Interested parties are welcome to submit a 150 word abstract for consideration by August 20, 2012.”
