Asian/Pacific American Communication Studies Division

Asian/Pacific American Communication Studies Division logo

The purpose of the Asian/Pacific American Communication Studies Division is to explore various cultural issues, politics, and strategies of engagement within Asian/Pacific American culture and examine power relationships among cultural communities. It encourages scholarship that explores ways to create dialogue on diasporic/transnational challenges and how diverse cultural identities intersect in the context of inter-Asia/Americas. The division works with the Asian/Pacific American Caucus to cultivate connections among these scholars and sponsor a business meeting, panels, and paper presentations at the NCA’s Annual Convention.
