Communication Studies. The conference is sponsored by a consortium of
universities: the University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University,
Ohio University, Southern Illinois University, University of Virginia,
and Temple University.
We invite original, non-published research submissions on any aspect of
global media and international aspects of mediated communication. Any
theoretical or methodological approach appropriate to communication and
media studies research is acceptable and encouraged. These approaches
may include research on social justice and media, issues of new
technologies and communities or social movements, representation of
global or transnational issues, qualitative or quantitative studies of
global media flows, media audiences and reception, the connections
between communication and immigrant or diasporic populations, the
comparative or international role of social media in political systems
and institutions, messaging techniques and strategies for health
communication in global settings, investigations on media policy and law
in global or international settings, infrastructural challenges for
media and development, research concerning the philosophy of
globalization and media, and approaches engaging the rise of
anti-globalization around the world and in the United States. In order

international communication broadly defined.
