ECA 2016 Short Course Submission Template

ECA’s invites submissions for short courses to be included in its 2016 annual convention program.  The convention will take place at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore from March 30 – April 3, 2016.   As a convention theme, [R]evolution provides an opportunity for communication studies scholars and practitioners to address the theme from a variety of perspectives, theories, and applications.  Short Course submissions are encouraged to consider the question posed Jason Wrench, ECA Vice President: Are the field, our scholarship, and our teaching best served by a series of slow, incremental changes, or is it time to promote radical, pervasive overthrow of the status quo? Short courses should be formatted as a workshop that encourages participate interaction. Presenters are required to supply all material for the course.
