International Communicology Institute

ICI COLLOQUIUM


  ⌘ ICI COLLOQUIUM 


The Colloquium is usually a one or two day roundtable meeting hosted by an ICI Fellow(s) at a university or research center. Colloquia are organized on an occasional basis with no fixed schedule per year. Because attendance is typically limited to ten (10) or fewer presentations, participation is strictly by invitation only from the colloquium organizer. 

 

Colloquia are intended to stimulate a research initiative which will, in time, result in the presentation of a topical panel of papers at an academic conference, in a special issue of a journal, or as an edited book collection of essays. The sequence of Colloquia is designated by number, year,  theme, department, institution, and country, e.g., “First ICI Colloquium, 2014, The Cultural Matrix of Communicology, Department of Communication Studies, Eastern Washington University (USA)”. 

 

Suggestions for colloquia are proposed to, and approved by, the ICI Director on behalf of the Collegium of Fellows.
