ALL FOR PAPERS AND PANELS ON COMMUNICATION THEORY AND PRACTICE IN EASTERN EUROPE, RUSSIA, CIS and FORMER SOVIET REPUBLICS AT NATIONAL COMMUNICATION ASSOCIATION CONVENTION
Sunday, November 14 - Wednesday, November 17, 2010 in San Francisco, California
DEADLINE: 9 p.m. EST February 17, 2010
The North American Russian Communication Association (NARCA) invites the submission of panels, completed papers or extended abstracts that focus on various aspects of communication theory and practice in Russian Federation, Eastern Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and former Soviet republics for the National Communication Association Convention in San Francisco.
Following the official theme for the NCA 96th Annual Convention “Building Bridges”, NARCA will encourage submissions that focus on your experience related to the benefits of making intercultural connections and the struggle to do so. We seek submissions that feature international collaborations in research, teaching or business encounters. When considering your potential participation with NARCA/RCA activities, please keep the convention theme in mind.
We welcome any methodological approach, theoretical perspective, or situation that may advance our understanding of communication discipline. For example, papers about communicative or rhetorical behavior, social interaction, theoretical contributions, any form of mediated or face-to-face form of communication or interaction between people from the above countries and cultures would be appropriate. However, submissions should not be limited to these areas as long as they are related to the above-mentioned regions in some way. In addition to the traditional types of submissions, we encourage innovative methods to involve scholars that may not use traditional presentational formats or require the literal presence of such participants. Superior submissions may be programmed in the Scholar to Scholar Interactive Media Series, which provides a format especially appropriate for visual and aural work, multimedia projects, and interactive presentations.
All submissions must be submitted online using the All Academic system, which can be accessed via the NCA homepage. Specifically, authors will enter their submission information to include a list of author(s) or panelists, author(s)/panelists contact information, paper/proposal title and abstracts.
All paper submissions must be uploaded to All Academic in order to be considered. Please note that you must strip ALL identifying information from your paper prior to submission. If you are not a member of NCA, you will be able to create a user name and password for All Academic. Submissions should not exceed 25 pages of primary text [excluding abstract, title page and works cited page(s)]. The best student and faculty submissions will be recognized and top papers will be considered for publication in the RCA-sponsored journals Vestnik and Russian Journal of Communication. Those who submit extended abstracts should note that if their paper is selected for the convention, they will be expected to upload a copy of their full, completed paper during the September period for submitting revised papers.
