The communication is the powerful basis of all human contact. The verbal and nonverbal symbols that we utilize might sound and look different, but the purpose we have for communicating is universal .We may choose to interact in face-to-face, or via EMC and CMC, however, we employ the same activity to understand context and conduct, explore relationship between symbolic action and other forms of human behaviors, and address fundamentals of right and wrong, permitted and prohibited, persuasion and propaganda in relation to debates taking place in our interconnected global village.
The 78th annual conference of the New York Communication Association (NYSCA) invites a wider range of interdisciplinary scholarship that rethink dimensions of conduct and pragmatic interplay beyond media, examine convergence and divergence in both national and international contexts, explore potential outcomes contributing to both micro-and macro-level political changes including the implementation of new legislation, and address the opportunities and the challenges associated with the transformation of public policy and the public sphere, freedom of speech and civil discourse, and research innovation.
