Communicating about Communication: Fostering the Development of the Communication Discipline in Russia.
Mast, Yulia; Keyton, Joann
Despite American domination of the social science study of communication, communication instruction is growing throughout the world. After the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991, American scholars initiated activities to introduce Russian scholars to the communication discipline. This paper explores that journey by describing the history of the study of communication in Russia prior to its American introduction, and the current state of communication as a discipline in Russia. The exploration is completed with a review of contemporary studies of Russian-American intercultural communication and what is known of Russian communication practices through studies conducted by scholars of communication-related disciplines. The paper concludes with an agenda for research and teaching of communication in Russia and the role of American scholars in its development. (Contains 34 references.) (RS)
