Calls for Papers

The Editor of the NYSCA Proceedings issues the following Calls for Papers:

(Please note that there are TWO (2) calls this year for the NYSCA Proceedings.)

CFP #1:
Research papers presented at the 72nd Annual Conference (2014) of the New York State Communication Association: Alone Together – Communication and Communities (or not) are being accepted for blind peer review for the conference Proceedings beginning immediately after the conference. We urge you to contribute your work.

CFP #2:
As we are coming up to our 75th anniversary, we wish to create a retrospective edition of work presented at our annual conferences. We invite those who have presented in the past but perhaps did not submit that work for publication in the Proceedings, to share that work with us in this special edition. Please indicate in the running head AND under the Title of the paper, the year in which it was presented.

Deadline for submissions to both the 2014 Conference and the Retrospective Edition: May 1, 2015.
