Call for Papers
Louisiana Communication Association 12th Annual Conference
Saturday, September 25, 2010
Student Life Center
Delgado Community College
615 City Park Avenue
New Orleans, LA
The conference theme for 2010 is "Who Dat?: Heroes, Hardship and the Power of Narrative." The role of communication in personal transformation transcends barriers of distance, class, race and gender, and a post-Katrina New Orleans is experiencing a sea-change after electing a new mayor and winning the Superbowl.
This call for papers asks for research on media coverage of these events, rhetorical analysis, narrative or other communication-related research of this or similar phenomenon in which identity is shaped and or transformed through a powerful event or series of events.
Submitters are encouraged to embrace the conference theme expressly, but presentations on all communication matters are welcome.
Submissions are due June 30, 2010.
