The 2021 edition of IPCC – Interdisciplinary PhD Communication
Conference, realised by a group of young scholars within the PhD in
Communication Program at Istanbul Bilgi University, Turkey, will be held
online on 7-8 May 2021 under the theme “Collaborations“. Participants
will be expected to provide 15-minute presentations, followed by
roundtable discussions, which encourage further inquiry into the related
topics of discussion, with the audience and fellow presenters. In line
with the mission of the PhD in Communication Program of Istanbul Bilgi
University, IPCC prioritises solidarity. Thus, the conference promotes a
platform for the co-creation of knowledge, facilitated by free-form
All PhD students or candidates, as well as early-career researchers with
PhDs earned in the last 5 years, who are interested in examining,
expressing and exploring the current and possible implications of
collaborations within their field of interest, are welcome to submit
their proposal and join the discussion. Contributions may include but
are not limited to the topics provided.
How are we attentive to collaborations?
In a time marked by biological, political, social and economic crises,
the IPCC shifts its focus towards practices of solidarity, of labouring
together and building new communities within the scope of communication
Acknowledging that it is a period of “necessary interdependence”
(Kenneth Bruffee, 1999) we are living in, IPCC 2021 calls for
participation to discuss new ways to diversify research methodologies,
communication techniques, co-authorship practices, shared dialogical
spaces and the public value of research. As the paradigms upon which
scientific knowledge and inquiry is built are constantly shifting, the
conference also aims to question the implications of collaboration for
the transformative process of constructing self as a researcher.
Furthermore, the new opportunities that have arisen following the
increased use of online communication tools sensitize us to consider
collaboration from new perspectives.
In order to reach out beyond the confines of academia and build on the
legacy of the previous two IPCC conferences on rethinking methodologies
and intersectionalities within the scholarly endeavour of communication,
the necessity of challenging dichotomies among theory and practice,
natural and social sciences, intellectuals and the public, and producers
and audiences is emphasised. By offering to expand horizons towards
including diverse voices and involving non-academic research agents as a
means to redefine scholarship, a “community of inquiry” is favoured
against a Cartesian model of science. This is a space that promotes and
celebrates all forms of collaboration, be it based on distance or proximity.
