ConferencesCall for Submissions, 2018 Communicating Diversity ConferenceMarch 22-23, 2018, Texas A&M University

The Department of Communication at Texas A&M University invites submissions from undergraduate and graduate students to our annual Communicating Diversity Conference, which provides a forum to showcase, share, and engage in discussions about scholarship on communication and diversity.

This two-day conference begins on Thursday evening with a workshop facilitated by our conference Co-Directors. On Friday, talented undergraduate and graduate students will present scholarship engaging diversity in a variety of contexts and through different theoretical lenses. The day will culminate with Dr. Tomeka Robinson’s keynote address concerning her current research on the intersections between health, culture, and policy.

We invite submissions related to, though not limited to, social justice, cultural diversity in “old” and “new” media, mass media, global technology, civic discourse, leadership, health communication, organizational communication, rhetoric and public address, visual communication, interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, public relations, political communication, and mass communication.

We especially encourage submissions that highlight voices of minoritized and marginalized groups based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, class, ability, and age.
