Communication for Survival

The NCA Annual Convention theme for 2019 is “Communication for Survival.” This theme seeks to inspire us to evaluate the ways communication improves lives, helps build relationships, sustains communities, improves society, and provides peace of mind. The conference session invites attendees to consider the ways communication can help people and the planet to survive.

Conference sessions will be discussing important change topics such as; the Black Lives Matter movement; the #MeToo movement; international relations; apocalyptic rhetoric; race; homo sacer; the prison industrial complex; terrorism; economic crisis; natural and man-made disasters; gun violence; health care; as well as utilitarian and pragmatic approaches to communication. Further to those key subjects of debate, sessions may address engagement on the innovation of current theoretical scholarship (i.e. social movement theory, theories of social change, neoliberalism, racial microaggressions, biopolitics and necropolitics, racial battle fatigue, queer futurity, integrated communication, negotiation, etc.).
