NCA 102nd Annual Convention
Communication’s Civic Callings
Thank you so much to
everyone who submitted papers, panel discussions, roundtables, short courses,
preconferences, social justice films, and other contributions via NCA
Convention Central over the past weeks—your creative energies will drive our
convention in November.
And thank you as well
to all the colleagues who are acting as reviewers; your careful consideration
of our submissions furthers NCA's commitment to intellectual rigor, pedagogical
excellence, and civic engagement.
Please remember that NCA
is proud to host our first-ever Social Justice Exchange (SJE), a three-hour
event wherein scholars and activists come together to share best practices. We
hope to advance the common good by enabling scholars and teachers to hear from
grassroots practitioners and community leaders; at the same time, we hope our
invited guests' civic engagements will benefit from our scholarship. If you
would like to participate in the SJE, or to recommend local practitioners to
invite, please contact Bryan Crable,
Villanova University, SJE planner.
