The Intercultural Interest Group is requesting paper and panel submissions for the 110th Annual ECA Convention in Providence, RI. The convention theme, Creating Our Future, calls for transforming lives, communities, and organizations through managing resources stemming from our research and scholarly activities. The Intercultural Communication Interest Group is devoted to the study and practice of representing, performing, and negotiating cultural identities in face-to-face interaction and mediated communication in cross-cultural and international contexts. The interest group welcomes submissions from scholars at all stages in their academic career, especially those interested in integrating theory and practice in intercultural communication research.
Papers and panel/program proposals must be submitted electronically by Monday, October 15, 2018.
ECA will now be using Attendee Interactive to manage submissions and reviews. This is the same system used by the National Communication Association so you may be familiar with it. The deadline for submissions remains the same, October 15, 2018 at 11:59 PM. You will be prompted to create a new User ID and Password to submit your work. An email will be sent to the membership in the next couple of months to announce when Attendee Interactive will be open for submission.
