Call for Participation: 6th International Doctoral Consortium in CMS
We are now planning for the 6th International Doctoral Consortium (IDC), which will be held from June 8 -10, 2016 at the Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. We are certain that the IDC 2016 will be a most rewarding and meaningful experience for both doctoral students and staff, so we encourage you to register before March 16, 2016 by submitting a 250-500 word preliminary abstract!
Karen Ashcraft and Peter Simonson will give a keynote at the IDC 2016! Karen is a professor of Organizational Communication at the University of Colorado Boulder and her research is focused on organizational and occupational formations (identity, culture and mode of governance). Peter is an associate professor at the University of Colorado Boulder and his research is focused on rhetoric, media and the history of communication from historical, cultural and philosophical perspectives.
There are many more reasons to attend, for example:
The consortium is: 1) generally critical, 2) broadly qualitative, 3) highly developmental, 4) very supportive, 5) intimate, 6) international, 7) involves leading scholars, and 8) run and developed by doctoral students.
A small number of bursaries (CAD$400) are available for participating students.
