International Communication as a Field of Study.
Markhan, James W., Ed.
This collection of reports and papers critically examines the state of education in international and comparative communication studies in American universities. The papers grew from a symposium on the study of international communication held in 1969. The interaction and play of mass communication in international affairs, a relatively new phenomenon, was the prime concern of the symposium. The symposium traced the development and growth of international studies from data gathered by three different surveys at intervals over a 15-year period. It attempted to assess theory, philosophy, method, course organization, curriculum content, sources, and data collection. It analyzed the problem of integrating international orientations into the professional curriculum. Comparative studies were seen as an interdisciplinary field. The symposium looked at what was right and wrong in present practice, and it suggested changes and research problems for the future. (JK)
