This seminar brings together scholars and professionals from multiple areas within the communication disciplines, and also from other related fields such architecture, design, and urban, planning, Our purpose is to explore and discuss theoretical perspectives, new and ongoing field research findings, as well as case studies aimed at enhancing our understanding of: (a) communication patterns in urban communities, (b) how these patterns are shaped by and shape the physical, built, and social environment of the places we live in, (c) how the communication ecologies we construct in the process of our everyday lives impact our well-being, and (d) the positive and negative ways in which policy interventions influence the communication environment of cities. In addition, this seminar offers an opportunity for researchers interested in urban communication to explore possibilities for collaboration that can lead to the development of research grants, new books and other publications, new courses, and conferences. Within the framework of the conference theme, "Communication and Community," the research papers and field projects selected for presentation and discussion will that bridge traditional disciplinary boundaries and seek to connect individuals and groups in community settings.
