In honor of the National Communication Association‘s Centennial, COMM 365, a project celebrating 100 years of communication research, begins this week. Five times per week brief, accessible write-ups of impactful concepts, theories, and research findings from our discipline will appear. The entries began on January 13, 2014 and run throughout the year.
The daily entries were created by NCA interest groups and represent the breadth of our discipline. Entries on topics related to intercultural communication were posted between January 27 and February 4.
The entries will be interesting for NCA members to read and can serve as a resource for undergraduate students enrolled in basic theory and research methods courses. For example, instructors may assign students to review the findings, which will be posted daily and neatly archived by topic, to generate research ideas for papers or extra credit projects. The entries have been written and edited in such a way as to be useful to teachers in secondary educational settings who have an interest in drawing from the discipline for class instruction or related activities.
COMM 365 is Chaired by Zac Gershberg of California State University Stanislaus and sponsored by the Centennial Committee.
The National Communication Association (NCA) is one of the member organizations of the Council of Communication Associations, the parent organization of CID.
