72nd Annual Conference of the ICA in Paris

72nd Annual Conference of the ICA in Paris

At the end of May, some HBI staff members will travel to Paris, where the International Communication Association (ICA) will hold its annual conference from 26 to 30 May. It is the world's largest conference for communication studies. After two years of online conferences due to the pandemic, it will now be held mostly in person again. However, some selected presentations can also be followed online.
The theme "One World, One Network‽" is intended to stimulate a rethinking of communication research on globalisation and networks. The special sign in the form of the superimposed question and exclamation marks is an attempt to both appreciate and problematise the suggested unity of the world or of one network.
