Submission DEADLINE: October 11, 2019 11:59 p.m. CST
Call for Papers and Panels
Central States Communication Association (CSCA)
Annual Convention Chicago O'Hare, Loews Hotel (Rosemont, IL)
April 14-19, 2020
Borders & Breakthroughs
The Graduate Student Caucus invites all graduate student members of CSCA to submit competitive papers, programs, and interactive panels to be considered for programming at the 2020 CSCA conference to be held in Chicago, Illinois. Our interest group focuses on celebrating graduate student work and providing development opportunities in relation to teaching, service, and scholarship. We encourage graduate students to embrace the convention theme, Borders & Breakthroughs. A border is a demarcation – geographic, political, conceptual, linguistic, etc. that separates one thing from something else. Breakthroughs transcend borders and create new possibilities for inquiry, teaching, learning, relating, and serving.
In addition to submitting work relating to borders and breakthroughs on research and teaching, this convention theme also extends to foundation in regard to service, collaboration, and conversation. Quality scholarship and creative ideas are our main goal. In an effort to encourage collaboration among graduate students, we have developed a Facebook page to create space for brainstorming, planning, and networking. Please visit, join, and participate in the conversations about the upcoming convention at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cscagradcaucus/
