The 99th Annual Convention of the National Communication Association
Preconference: November 20, 2013
Conference: November 21-24, 2013
PC06: Applied Semantics and Practical Communication across the Disciplines
November 20, 2013
8:00am – 12:00pm
Location: McKinley, Mezzanine Level, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
This preconference session identifies and explores core concepts that span the field of communication and commonly reach across the curriculum of general education. It emphasizes the centrality of discourse and language, and it will provide attendees with resources for thinking about and teaching broad-based theory fundamental courses or communication theory-based courses across disciplines.
It is designed for both graduate students and professors who would like to deepen their command over fundamental communication concepts and theories and/or are seeking to expand their repertoire of teaching resources.
By bringing together communication scholars whose work integrates various fields and disciplines and by asking them to provide vital materials for attendees, this half-day session promises to make connections that reach across all courses within the discipline of communication and/or across multiple disciplines.
