The Louisiana Communication Journal

Dr. C. Turner Steckline has been working with guest editor Dr. Claire Procopio to produce a special volume 11 of the journal dedicated to Hurricane Studies/Discourse.


Researchers from inside and outside of the state have contributed thoughtful pieces on disaster discourse.


Look for articles on successful public relations strategies for local restaurants, and analyses of visual rhetoric and headline news following Hurricane Katrina. Look for lessons from both Gustav and Ike on crisis management rhetoric, and enjoy your colleagues' Stories of the Storm as they reflect on their own communication experiences in the wake of the most recent hurricane to delay an LCA convention, Gustav.


As always, find a little something on pedagogy in the Teaching Matters section Editor Steckline has implemented.
