2019 Call for Submissions 


Omaha, NE
April 3 – April 6, 2019 

The leadership of the Central States Communication Association (CSCA) invites competitive papers, panel discussions, and performance sessions for the 88th Annual Convention in Omaha, NE. Members are urged to reflect on the theme of Dialogue and how we might create spaces of dialogue about research, teaching, and service and creative collaboration between our members, conference attendees, and communities. We encourage you to think outside of the parameters and structures that often limit our interactions at conferences—such as interest groups, methodologies, sub-disciplinary silos, teaching interests, and professional foci. When you are planning your panels and programs for 2019, consider ways that we can construct authentic dialogue in communication situations where we talk with rather than to each other.

Faculty, students, independent researchers, and community members are all encouraged to submit and attend the convention. University and community partnerships are particularly welcome. Submissions inclusive of all methodological perspectives in the communication discipline are expected and embraced.

Look for specific calls and submission information from each of the 20+ CSCA interest groups, caucuses, and sections. For questions about the general call or the 2019 annual convention, please contact Chad McBride, 2019 program planner, at CSCAomaha@gmail.com.

Deadline for Submissions: October 10, 2018

Primary Program Planner: Dr. Chad McBride (CSCAomaha@gmail.com)
