Eun Young Lee (, Chair, Intercultural Communication Interest Group

Central States Communication Association (CSCA)
Annual Convention-Madison, Wisconsin
March 30-April 3, 2022

The Intercultural Communication Interest Group invites the submission of competitive papers, panels, roundtable discussions, and innovative programming for the 2022 CSCA convention in Madison, Wisconsin. The purpose of the Intercultural Communication Interest Group is to promote the interests of faculty and students, as well as others, interested in examining intercultural communication research, theory, and pedagogy.

We call for submissions that examine, critique, and reflect upon ways in which we connect to each other across different cultural backgrounds. Especially this year, we welcome submissions that explore how we as individuals, communities, and societies re-connect when our lives are disrupted and disconnected for various reasons on a local and global scale. A range of topics encompassing the significance between and among diverse U.S. and international constituencies, communities, and scholars and students, as well as intercultural pedagogy, mentorship, social justice, conflict, peace, and globalization are welcome. We encourage members to engage the theme of the 2022 CSCA convention, Re-Connect, regarding issues that highlight highly contested and divided political and cultural climates locally and globally. We also look for works that offer best pedagogical practices and propose new directions in intercultural communication scholarship. We welcome a variety of research, including interpretive, critical, and social scientific approaches, as well as papers that apply, extend or develop theoretical approaches. For panel proposals, preference will be given to panels whose panelists represent multiple institutions rather than a single institution.

Awards: The Intercultural Communication Interest Group presents two awards with cash prizes: 1) top paper award and 2) top student paper award. The awards for top paper and top student paper will be recognized during the Intercultural Communication Business Meeting.
