Meetings of the (Peaceful) Minds: A Survey of Convention Opportunities for Peace Communication Researchers.
Smith, Michael
A study was conducted to ascertain what speech communication convention outlets might be available to peace communication researchers. Seven issues of the Consortium for Peace Research Education and Development's (COPRED) "Peace Chronicle," a publication which offers one of the more comprehensive listings of conventions, events, and other peace resources available, were examined. Information was classified according to the following schema: communication related, educational training and peace studies, dispute resolution and mediation, personal and professional development, activism, talks and exhibits, science, international, and unrelated or unclear. The most frequently occurring conferences were those dealing with dispute resolution, peace studies, science, and international. Results indicated that very few outlets exist specifically for "peace communication" research. But the field is fertile for sharing research and expertise with professionals from other fields. The study did not consider the role of the regional speech communication conventions, yet the evidence shows that these conventions, too, offer peace communication conference opportunities. (Two tables of data are included.) (MG)
