Games for Social Connectedness - Games For Change

“As our isolation grows by the day in response to the global crisis of COVID-19, games could be key in reducing loneliness and fostering a sense of connection whilst physically isolated in our homes.” This is a guest blog post written by Rachel Kowert, PhD and Raffael Boccamazzo, PsyD and Take This Online gamers have been historically portrayed as awkward or loners, riddled with social anxiety, and drawn to lives of social isolation from the rest of society. Part of this is due to the fact tha....

NCA 105th Annual Convention: Communication for Survival NCA 105th Annual Convention: Communication for Survival

[01/21/19]   Baltimore, Maryland, is an ideal location for the 105th Annual Convention, “Communication for Survival.” Baltimore, also known as the “Monumental City,” is near the early hunting grounds of the Susquehannocks and mere miles from both NCA’s headquarters and the United States Capitol. The largest city in Maryland, Baltimore is a city rich with abundant cultural opportunities, educational resources, and a thriving urban space. These spaces include the Mount Vernon neighborhood, just north of downtown, featuring fine dining and an exuberant nightlife, as well as the Hampden and Canton neighborhoods. Baltimore is home to Fort McHenry, whose defense during the Battle of Baltimore inspired The Star-Spangled Banner. Finally, the city is the former home of Freddie Gray, who lost his life while in police custody in April 2015, an event that helped spark a national movement.

The convention theme, “Communication for Survival,” is designed to help inspire us to think about the ways communication improves lives, helps people build relationships, sustain communities, change society for the better, and provide peace of mind. As scholars, teachers, students, leaders, and community members, I hope I can count on you to consider the ways communication can help people and the planet to survive. I imagine that convention attendees will be discussing change: the Black Lives Matter movement; the #metoo movement; international relations; apocalyptic rhetoric; driving while black or brown; homo sacer; the prison industrial complex; terrorism; economic crisis; natural and man-made disasters; gun violence; health care; and/or utilitarian and pragmatic approaches to communication. Additionally, the theme might inspire engagement with and innovation of current theoretical scholarship (e.g., social movement theory, theories of social change, neoliberalism, racial microaggressions, biopolitics and necropolitics, racial battle fatigue, queer futurity, integrated communication, negotiation, etc.).The theme is meant to challenge our community to think about the many ways in which communication can help improve our lives and our communities.

I look forward to your submissions and engaging in intelligent and transformative dialogue during our 105th Annual Convention in Baltimore.
