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.


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.

Request for Proposals

The National Communication Association requests proposals for projects and events that will advance the discipline of communication. While there are many funding outlets for communication scholars to seek support for academic disciplinary research, NCA is uniquely positioned to support work that is focused on the discipline itself.  All funded activities should align with the goals of NCA’s strategic plan and should have widespread impact that reaches beyond a single department, campus, or NCA unit.  For information about projects and events that have been funded by NCA in the past, please click here.

Funding proposals submitted through this request for proposals should be for one-time funding not to exceed $5,000.[1]  Preference is given to stand-alone projects/events, but partial funding of larger projects/events will be considered provided that the funding is allocated to a specific piece of the larger endeavor.
