CALL FOR PAPERS AND PROPOSALS
“Communicating the Possible”
April 2 – April 7th, 2013
Kansas City Marriott Downtown
The CSCA Women's Caucus invites submissions of competitive papers and panel proposals examining the role of gender in communication studies. We are particularly interested in submissions that examine feminist topics and/or use feminist methods. Our caucus has a long history of community engagement and activism, and we welcome submissions that address civic concerns. Topics of interest include women’s roles/challenges in professional organizations, interpersonal relationships, the political arena, popular culture, women and freedom of expression.
We strongly encourage undergraduate and graduate student papers. Co-sponsorship between other CSCA divisions and interest groups is strongly encouraged. Our caucus issues a top paper and top student paper, both of which receive a monetary stipend. Our caucus also issues a top panel award designed to connect with our conference communities. The top panel receives a monetary award of $50 to be donated to a local Kansas City charity of the panel’s choice.
