THE RCA'S PARTICIPATION AT THE 2003 NCA CONVENTION IN MIAMI

The time is coming for the annual communication convention, held by our affiliate partner, the (American) National Communication Association (NCA). This year the convention will be held in Miami Beach, Florida (USA) on November 19-23. The RCA's participation will be expanded from last year. We will hold a Business Meeting and two discussion panels with the participants both from Russia and the US (see the schedule with the list of papers and the names of presenters below). Those listed Russian participants who won't be able to attend the conference in person, should send their paper to oimatyas@ori.net so that a copy of it can be distributed at the panel(s).

Considering the broad scope of the event, it is difficult to give a brief, yet comprehensive, overview of what it is like. For example, it would take dozens of pages to describe just one day's activities at the convention (the entire convention Program constitutes a book of about 500 pages). For those of you who might be interested to know more, I recommend visiting the convention site and exploring it for things that accord with your research interests:

From my point of view, it might be of interest for Russian scholars and educators to see not only the great variety panel themes (of which there are hundreds), but also a list of preconvention thematic conferences, workshops, and short courses. The latter can be particularly important to those who would like to develop and teach a new course. The courses offered range widely across communication discipline(s) from organizational, small group, mass-media to intercultural, instructional, gender, etc. By simply looking through the topics of those short courses one can make an outline of the scope of Western communication discipline and communication curriculum, as well as get a sense of the dynamics of their development (which may show which of the courses may be more in demand) and then, in turn, productively compare those dynamics with one's own home schools in Russia.
