The African American Communication and Culture Division (AACCD) invites your competitive papers and paper session for the NCA 98th Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida on November 15-18, 2012. The theme for the 98th Annual Convention is “Celebrate COMMunity.”
Appropriate for a convention theme that seeks to “affirm the ideas that unify the communication discipline, as well as celebrate the diverse community of scholars, educators, and practitioners that constitutes the National Communication Association,” the AACCD feels particularly at “home” because much of what we teach, study, and research revolves around building, sustaining and empowering “community” across diverse audiences. Therefore, AACCD encourages you to submit competitive papers addressing issues that significantly contribute to our convention call but also ones that further the understanding of communication practices, processes, methods, discourse, and strategies involving and/or affect descendants of the African Diaspora.
You must submit all papers and panel sessions electronically to NCA Submission Central linked at www.natcom.org/convention. In order to avoid unnecessary problems with submission and review, please carefully read the following guidelines:
SUBMITTING A COMPETITIVE PAPER
We will only consider fully completed papers. Each paper should include:
• A title
• An abstract (no more than 250 words)
• Maximum length of paper is 25, double-spaced pages, excluding references, tables, charts, and appendices.
• No information identifying the author(s) may appear in the body of your abstract or your paper.
SUBMITTING A PAPER SESSION
Submitted paper sessions should include:
• A title for the session
• A list of presenters, their institutional addresses, and their email addresses
• The names of the chair and respondent, their institutional addresses, and their email addresses
• Titles and abstracts (350 words maximum) for EACH presentation or paper
• A session abstract (75 words maximum)
• A session abstract (250 words maximum)
If you wish to submit a Panel Discussion that deals with issues related to African American Communication or descendants of the African Diaspora, you are encouraged to submit those proposals directly to the Black Caucus. Please specify any audiovisual needs at the time of submission.
