2016 Call

Call for Papers and Panels

2016 Central States Communication Association (CSCA)
Annual Convention in Grand Rapids, Michigan
April 13-17, 2016


The Kenneth Burke Society Interest Group invites the submission of competitive papers, panels, roundtable discussions, and innovative programming for the 2016 CSCA convention in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The purpose of the Kenneth Burke Society Interest Group is to promote the ideas and work of Kenneth Burke. A range of topics encompassing Burke’s work are welcome, and we especially encourage members to address issues related to the convention theme of Foundation. In terms of panels, preference will be given to those with panelists representing multiple institutions rather than representing a single institution. Both student and non-student top paper awards can be awarded given the amount and quality of submissions.

Papers: Only completed papers will be accepted. Papers must include a title and a brief abstract. The word “Student” should be marked on all papers written by student authors. Student authored papers do not include those co-authored with faculty members. Author names and any identifying information must be removed prior to submission. A Competitive Paper Submission Form must be submitted along with the paper. This form is located on the CSCA website: www.csca-net.org.

Panels: Discussion panels and paper panels must be submitted using the respective forms located on the CSCA website: www.csca-net.org.

All technology requests must be made at the time of submission.
