NCA Internationalization Initiatives

Introducing New NCA Internationalization Initiatives

December 6, 2017

Under the guidance of NCA President Stephen J. Hartnett and the Task Force on Fostering International Collaboration in the Age of Globalization, the association has recently released a number of new internationalization initiatives.

A new Internationalizing the Communication Discipline brochure provides Communication scholars, educators, and administrators with information about the rationale for “internationalization,” current efforts in this regard, and possible future directions.

As one way to encourage internationalization of the discipline, NCA has partnered with the Communication University of China (CUC) to create the new Visiting Fellows Program for Communication and Media Research (VFP). The program will provide a unique space for collaboration, wherein NCA members and our Chinese colleagues will work alongside, study with, and learn from one another. VFP fellows will spend one semester on the CUC campus. See the full call for more information, and to apply. Note that the deadline to apply for the inaugural class of Fellows is February 1, 2018.

Also in partnership with the CUC, NCA announces the second biennial conference on Communication, Media, and Governance in the Age of Globalization, to be held June 22-23, 2018, in Beijing, China. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2018. View the full call for submission information.

Finally, NCA is offering Fostering Education in the Age of Globalization, a two-day, on-campus experience that provides customized guidance and assistance to campuses seeking to create a more inclusive, international educational environment. See our flyer for more information on this immersive opportunity.
