Call for Papers and Panels

2015 Central States Communication Association (CSCA)
Annual Convention in Madison, Wisconsin
April 15-19, 2015


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. A range of topics are welcome and we especially encourage members to address issues related to the convention theme of Convergence. Topics of interest include women’s roles/challenges in professional organizations, interpersonal relationships, the political arena, popular culture, women and freedom of expression. In terms of panels, preference will be given to those with panelists representing multiple institutions rather than representing a single institution.

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, top student paper, and top panel all of which receive a monetary award.
