Comparative Communication Study International Symposium
 
1-3 October 2018
 Location: Deakin University - Burwood campus (BCC)


Purpose
The study of communication has advanced under different traditions. Its connection to professional practices that have become scholarly disciplines such as media studies, public relations, and journalism has sometimes led to particular applied directions that are drawing on sometimes distinctive aspects of communication theory.  Moreover, communication as the overarching field that links these approaches has also developed in equally distinctive traditions as it emerged as an area of study in different parts of the world.


Organizers
This international symposium is designed to investigate these different traditions in the study of communication and provide a platform for both comparison and exchange.  At its core, The International Comparative Communication Study International Symposium is jointly sponsored for this intellectual exchange by:
