Abstract:

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, this volume engages communication theory to enlarge communication practices. Each chapter makes a distinctive contribution to communication theory and practice. Collectively, contributors’ work reveals the ecletic 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.
