Apply for the ICOMM ISA 2016 Preconference

Please join the International Communication Section of ISA for a special one-day pre-conference to ISA 2016 in Atlanta, GA:
Conference Title: Communication, Peace and Security in the 21st Century
Date: March 15, 2016
Location: Georgia State University, Atlanta GA, USA
Abstract Submission Deadline: November 1, 2015

Two overlapping trends highlight the first decade and a half of the 21st Century: information abundance and the growing ubiquity of mobile communication devices. While it is often claimed that these developments have facilitated political uprisings and revolutions, there is much debate over whether they have increased the world’s peace and security.  This pre-conference will explore this important question at the international, state and individual levels.

Speakers include: Professors Robert Entman (George Washington University), Lene Hansen (University of Copenhagen), Steven Livingston (George Washington University) and Phil Seib (University of Southern California)

3) Abstract (300-word limit for both panels and individual papers)
