Synopsis

This edited collection provides a forum for communication scholars whose efforts are directed toward social change. Originating from theme sessions at the 2008 convention of the International Communication Association (ICA), this volume engages communication theory to enlarge communication practices. Chapters address perennial issues of interest to communication scholars as experienced in contemporary terrains: how can scholarship weave its way more fully into the lives of people residing outside of the academy; what counts as social impact; what are the epistemological and ontological debates that play out in the realm of communication scholarship that seeks to redress lived inequities; ans, what ethical demands accompany scholarship and activism in international landscapes characterized by globalization, neo-colonialism, and rapid technological shifts. Each chapter makes a distinctive contribution to communication theory and practice.

Collectively, contributors' work reveals the eclectic nature of theoretical and methodological work pursued by communication scholars and practitioners, and focuses on meaning-making as it evolves, changes, adapts, and is sustained in conversation, mediated communication, distributed organizing, and other venues. This collection seeks to foster edifying dialogue about social injustices, and move people to meaningful reflection and action.
