New Research in Communication Theory: A Summary.
Haun, Martha J.
Recent studies in communication theory are outlined and briefly discussed. Categories of research included are information systems, interpersonal communication, mass communication, organizational communication, intercultural communication, political communication, instructional communication, and health communication. Except for the area of health communication, all of these areas seem to be expanding. A trend was found toward attempts to build meaningful theories of communication, rather than borrowing theories from other disciplines. (AA)
