NCA IICD HONORS GRADUATE STUDENT SEMINAR
The International and Intercultural Communication Division (IICD) of the National Communication Association, in partnership with Sage Publications, proudly announces the first IICD Honors Graduate Student Seminar to be held at the 2014 NCA conference in Chicago. The theme of the seminar is Intercultural Communication and New Media and will feature competitively selected papers of currently enrolled MA and Ph.D students in communication and allied fields. Intercultural new media research is an emerging and important new area of intercultural communication and consists of multiple dimensions including ( but not limited to) how new media impact intercultural communication theory (i.e acculturation/dialogue/competence/identity), how culture influences the social uses of new media, and in what ways new media affect culture. Papers will be reviewed and selected by top scholars who will also serve as research respondents during the honors seminar. The honors seminar will be conducted on Saturday, November 22. 2014 from 3:30-7:00 PM at the NCA conference in the Conrad Hilton, Chicago. The seminar will be followed by an IICD reception honoring the participants. Graduate students selected for participation will receive a monetary award as well as IICD honors graduate student certificates. To be considered, full papers (APA including 200 word abstract) are due no later than June 9, 2015. Finalists will be contacted and announced by August 29, 2014.
Papers should be sent electronically to the Coordinator of the IICD Honors Graduate Student Seminar: Robert Shuter, Professor, Marquette University, Diederich College of Communication and Visiting Professor, Arizona State University, Hugh Downs School of Communication.
