Behind the Curtain: Creating Dialogue in and about the Academic Publishing Process
Thursday, April 4, 2 – 3:15pm
Doubletree Hilton Omaha, Nebraska Room

This interactive panel provides an important look “behind the curtain” of journal and book publishing. In keeping with the conference theme, this panel will create a space for editors and authors to dialogue. In addition, graduate students will have an opportunity to learn how to get involved in reviewing. This panel was created with the hope of gaining a deeper understanding the potential dialogic opportunities available to lessen uncertainty in the publishing process and strengthen scholarship.

Short Course: Communication Is… An Introduction to the Text and Discussion
Saturday, April 6, 3:30 – 4:45pm
Doubletree Hilton Omaha, Washington Room

Communication Is … was started as a response to both the Communication As … Perspectives on Theory (2006) collection from 2004 and the renewed concerns regarding the position of the discipline within the larger academy. Once the original panel was conceived for CSCA 2018 and presented within the Communication Theory Interest Group, the contributing presenters began scratching the surface at the evolution of the discipline that has occurred during the past ten to twenty years. The book itself has become a collection of these evolutions across all aspects of teaching and study within Communication. This short course will offer attendees an opportunity to ask questions about the book, the process of taking a book from panel to publication, the pedagogical uses for the text (contributors will provide teaching ideas for their chapters), and to speak with attending contributors about their ideas in particular. Attendees will receive hard copies of the book upon publication.
