Symbolic Convergence and Special Communication Theories: Sensing and Examining Dis/Enchantment with the Theoretical Robustness of Critical Autoethnography.
Shields, Donald C.
Communication Monographs, v67 n4 p392-421 Dec 2000
Demonstrates that the concept of rhetorical vision yields insight into the creation, rise, and potential demise of a special theory--the critical autoethnography special theory (CAST). Explicates the Symbolic Convergence Theory's ability to explain how special communication theories come into being as the product of rhetorical visions containing norms, conventions, and customs for exemplar participation in a specific communication style.
