This year’s Convention theme, “Communication for Survival,” is designed to help inspire us to think about the ways communication improves lives, helps people build relationships, sustains communities, changes society for the better, and provides peace of mind. The theme invites submitters to consider engagement with and innovation of current theoretical scholarship (e.g., social movement theory, theories of social change, neoliberalism, racial microaggressions, biopolitics and necropolitics, racial battle fatigue, queer futurity, integrated communication, negotiation, etc.) and challenge our community to think about the many ways in which Communication can help improve our lives and our communities.
