Incoherence: Failure, Futures, and Forgotten Messages

The Communication and Technology Interest Group invites submissions of competitive papers, extended abstracts, and panel proposals for the 2024 CSCA Convention. The purpose of the Communication and Technology Interest Group is to promote dialogue and scholarship on the role of technology in communication. In conjunction with the convention theme, we are seeking innovative and insightful research that explores how we use technology to narrate our identities, as well as the use of technology in perpetuating or rectifying inequalities. We also welcome submissions exploring how technology can inspire communicative breakthroughs as they pertain to all aspects of our field. 

We welcome submissions that deal with a variety of technology platforms/types (e.g., AI, robots, VR, AR, mobile phone, social media). We also welcome a diverse range of topics/contexts concerning technology including but not limited to the following: CMC (Computer-Mediated Communication), HMC (Human-Machine Communication), and technology in diverse communication contexts (e.g., health, interpersonal, organizational, education). All methodological approaches and perspectives are welcome, and we strongly encourage work addressing the uses and effects of communication technology within the conference theme (Incoherence: Failure, Futures, and Forgotten Messages).

The Communication & Technology Interest Group will accept the following submission types:
