ECA 2022 Convention - Intercultural Communication Interest Group Call for Papers
INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION INTEREST GROUP CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
113th Annual Eastern Communication Association (ECA) Convention
Philadelphia, PA; April 7 to 9, 2022
Submission Deadline: October 15, 2021, 11:59 PM ET
The Intercultural Communication Interest Group is requesting paper and panel submissions for the 113th Annual ECA Convention. The 2022 ECA convention will be an opportunity for (re)union! If all goes well, the 2022 convention will be our first “in person” ECA after two years of being unable to gather our community together. We seek to make ECA 2022 an occasion of joyous reconnection and opportunity to build new connections among our community members. We also seek to make ECA 2022 a location of reflection, deliberation, and learning as we emerge from the global pandemic and consider how we as Communication educators and scholars will contribute to a post-pandemic world.
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 Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 11:59 PM ET.
ECA uses 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, 2021 at 11:59 PM ET. You will be prompted to create a new User ID and Password to submit your work.
