Call for Papers

(Version française sur le site: http://www.acc-cca.ca/fr/node/397)

Canadian Communication Association
Annual Conference, 2010 (CCA)
June 1-3, Concordia University, Montréal

“Connected Understanding” is the theme of the 
Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social 
Sciences (CFHSS) 2010 Congress within which the 
Canadian Communication Association (CCA) will 
hold its Annual Conference from June 1 - 3 at 
Concordia University. We are calling for 
proposals that explore, critique and extend this 
theme as well as for proposals on any other 
relevant themes to Communication Studies.

History Group:
For the first time this year, we will be hosting 
a day of panels (June 1) focusing on the 
historical study of communications. Proposals 
concerning all topics pertinent to the historical 
study of communication(s), media, technology and 
key thinkers in communication studies are 
welcome. These sessions will be jointly hosted by 
the CCA and the Media and Communication History 
group of the Canadian Historical Association.
During the conference, we will host a meeting to 
gauge interest in establishing a more formal 
History Interest Group (HIG) within the CCA.
Please send queries regarding the History Group 
to Sandra Gabriele [gabriele at uwindsor.ca]

We invite scholars and professionals to submit 
proposals that develop the range and depth of 
scholarship in communication studies. Proposals may take the form of:

Single-paper presentations
Multi-paper panels
Roundtables or Workshops
Performances or Screenings
Graduate Masters Sessions (GMS - for MA students only).

Please note that Masters students interested in 
taking part in the conference must submit through 
the Graduate Masters Sessions. See the GMS terms
