VACAS 2020 represents a great opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students, and communication faculty—especially those based in Virginia—to share their latest work in the field of communication. We encourage submissions across the whole range of the communication field, including, but not limited to: media studies, journalism, political communication and campaigns, film studies, communication and advocacy, public relations, communication theory and rhetorical criticism, critical/cultural studies, science and environmental communication, intercultural communication, interpersonal/small group communication, health and risk communication, and communication education/pedagogy. We welcome submissions from undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty. Panels, papers, and posters can present completed work or work-in-progress.
Undergraduate students (and their faculty advisors) are especially encouraged to submit their work. In short, we envision VACAS 2020 as a positive and supportive venue for undergraduate students to present their exemplary work in communication research and critical analysis. A full discussion of this year’s conference theme—Communication and Identity—can be found at vacas.gmu.edu.
