Amsterdam, the Netherlands

July 2, 2018

The recent movement of people from one place to another due to precarious circumstances furnishes a decisive, contemporary subject for inquiry.

What are the dialogical capacities, apparatus, and ties of migrants, refugees, diasporatic groups, displaced persons, specious document holders, extended visa holders, temporary workers, and students? After what scholars call the mobility turn, the history of movement provides new language to understand the ambit of everyday, informal reasoning, as the new “normal”: exile, exodus, migration, expatriation, place-less-ness, multiple identities, and anonymity often without the option of returning “home.”

The Communication University of China (CUC) and the U.S.-based National Communication Association (NCA) are pleased to announce a co-sponsored summer conference to be held in Beijing, China, June 17-19, 2016. The conference will be held at the CUC International Convention Center, creating public space for scholars, media practitioners, government officials, and students to participate in open discussions and dialogue. Presentations will be made in English and Chinese, with simultaneous translations available via headsets.

Rationale

China and the United States are positioned to influence notions of democracy, nationalism, citizenship, human rights, environmental priorities, and public health for the foreseeable future.

This international conference will address these broad issues as questions about communication; about how our two nations envision each other and how our interlinked imaginaries create both opportunities and obstacles for greater understanding and strengthened relations. Within the overarching theme of “Communication, Media, and Governance in the Age of Globalization,” the conference will address eight key topics, each to be explored in panel sessions, workshops,graduate student panel sessions, and poster sessions.
