CFP IICD of NCA 2019

ConferencesCall for submissions: International & Intercultural Communication Division, National Communication Association, November 14-17, 2019, Baltimore, Maryland. Deadline: March 27, 2019.

The International and Intercultural Communication Division of the National Communication Association invites submissions that examine communication in cultural, intercultural, and international contexts. Four kinds of submissions will be considered this year: (1) individual papers, (2) paper sessions, (3) panel discussions, and (4) performance sessions.

NCA’s convention theme is “Communication for Survival.” The theme invites us to engage in bold and cutting-edge approaches and perspectives in examining how communication plays important roles in survivals of various contexts. NCA Second Vice President Ono explains, “Communication for Survival can help inspire us to think about the quotidian ways communication improves lives, helping people build relationships, sustaining communities, changing society for the better, and providing peace of mind.” IICD invites rigorous and engaging submissions that examine various aspects of and topics related to communication for survival within international and intercultural contexts. Submissions that discuss international and intercultural communication research, teaching, practices, and service are strongly encouraged. The Division welcomes all theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches.

Miike reflection on international/cultural communication

On Inheriting the Fields of International and Intercultural Communication: A Personal Reflection*
Yoshitaka Miike (University of Hawai‘i at Hilo)

To inherit is to receive as legacy, place adequate value on and make a part of one’s life. But to be a custodian of a great legacy is to guard, preserve, expand and promote it. It is to honor it by building on and expanding it and, in turn, leaving it as an enriched legacy for future generations.

Maulana Karenga (1996, p. 551)

The International and Intercultural Communication Division (IICD) of the National Communication Association (NCA) was founded as a commission in 1971 and later formed as a division in 1984. I am thus the 42nd incoming chair of this flourishing division. When I think about the history of the IICD and its critical role in advocating diversity and advancing internationalization within the NCA, I feel the heavy weight of the gavel that Dr. S. Lily Mendoza at Oakland University passed to me in Washington, D.C. With an eye on the 100th Anniversary of the NCA next year, I would like to offer a personal year-end reflection on how we may inherit the fields of international and intercultural communication. More specifically, I wish to suggest that we (1) “create a community of a larger memory” of our fields (to borrow Dr. Ronald Takaki’s [1998] words), (2) clarify our theoretical ideas  and practical issues without sacrificing their complexities, and (3) generate knowledge that bridges differences especially from non-U.S. and non-elite perspectives.

IICD NCA call for papers

CALL FOR PAPERS

The International and Intercultural Division of the National Communication Association is ready to receive submissions relevant to cultural or intercultural contexts. Three kinds of submissions will be considered: individually submitted competitive papers (individual paper), pre-arranged thematic paper panels (paper session), and roundtable discussion panels (panel discussion) on intercultural topics. The theme for the 2011 conference in New Orleans is Voice (see official NCA Convention call) which emphasizes the National Communication Association as a community of engagement in issues affecting New Orleans and the Gulf Region. In addition to the three kinds of submissions described above, papers and panels which more fully explore and develop the conference theme as this relates to cultural issues are strongly encouraged. The deadline for submission of all materials is Wednesday, March 16th 2011 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

Please indicate whether you want your individual paper submission to be considered as a student paper selection or for the Scholar-to-Scholar sessions. Individual paper submissions should include a 100-word abstract and are limited to 25 pages. Only complete papers will be considered. Individual paper submissions should not contain identifying information (author name, university affiliation). Student papers should be clearly marked to be eligible for top student honors in the division, as well as the Donald P. Cushman Award for top student paper in NCA; to be eligible for either award, all authors must be students. Only one paper per author will be accepted, with one additional co-authored paper permitted for the division; if two sole-authored papers are submitted, the highest ranking will be accepted. The same paper may not be submitted to more than one division. Submissions should be original work, by the authors named, not previously presented at this or other conferences, and not previously published.

All materials must be submitted online through NCA Submission Central. Proposals for short courses, preconferences, seminars, or GIFTS (Great Ideas for Teaching Students) should be submitted directly to program planners for those areas. All submissions must list any A/V requirements. Check your email address listed in NCA Submission Central before or after submission as all correspondence goes there. Deadline: Wednesday, March 16th, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. PST
