Proceedings of the Summer Conference of the Speech Association of America (4th, Chicago, Ill., July 13-14, 1968).
Work, William, Ed.
The 1968 summer conference of the Speech Association of America (now the Speech Communication Association) was concerned with developments in speech communication research, with primary focus on the recommendations of the February New Orleans conference (ED 028 164), cosponsored by SAA and the U. S. Office of Education. The summer conference opened with a summary of SAA research activities, followed by reports on development in federally sponsored projects and opportunities for use of foundation fund resources. The proceedings include an address on research and the capacity to meet current social changes. There are reports from three SAA groups: the planning committee for the forthcoming National Developmental Project on Rhetoric, the committee on research information retrieval, and the educational policies board. Implications of the New Orleans conference are presented and reviewed from the perspectives of historical, critical, and behavioral scholarship. The proceedings also include reviews of research and instructional development projects in progress, followed by the transcript of a forum discussion on implications of these projects. The document concludes with a bibliography of sources for research materials. (Author/RN)
