The 2011 DHS, "Communication in Action: Disciplinary Applications for the 21st Century," was held July 26-29 on the campus of North Dakota State University in Fargo.   

Thirty doctoral students were selected to participate in the 2011 DHS. They are placed into one of three work groups, each of which will be lead by three faculty members. Working together, the three faculty members and the 10 students will discuss the submitted papers as well as engage in discussions of the theoretical, methodological, ethical, and practical issues involved in conducting research that might come to define the next century of communication scholarship.
