"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
National Communication Association Mini-Conference, November 14-16, 2010 
12th-Nov-2010 12:18 pm
Next week in San Francisco I will be presenting at the NCA Mini-Conference: "International Opportunities for Scholars in Communication and Related Disciplines" convened by Grant Hannis. My talk will focus upon opportunities available for Communication study and research in the United Kingdom.

An international perspective is much-needed at NCA, and I'm looking forward to this tremendously. If you'll be at the conference, please join us!

Over recent years, there has been a dramatic rise in the number of universities outside the US offering Communication and Journalism courses. This growth has taken place, for instance, in the Middle East, South East Asia, Australasia, South America and Canada. Such internationalization presents opportunities for US Communication scholars to seek funding to travel overseas to teach and conduct research, and for overseas Communication scholars to do likewise in the US. The mini-conference invites contributions from scholars who have already undertaken such travel - including the benefits derived, any pitfalls to avoid, what advice they would offer others thinking of embarking on such visits, etc.
