The Community Communication Section focuses on communication that originates, circulates and resonates with communities, broadly defined. It seeks to advance research on the objectives, practices and dynamics of community communication expressed across all types of media and symbol systems and formed around locality, politics, socio-economics, language, ethnicity, gender, or other interests and intersections. This Section welcomes both theoretical and applied research, as well as research conducted at both micro and macro levels of analysis.
