In addition to the connections between home life, social life and professional activities, Cynthia Stohl says we must pay attention to the linkages that individuals develop and maintain within their organizational contexts. Organizational Communication illustrates the ways in which today's changing social patterns, the increasing diversity of the workforce, the introduction of new communication technologies, and the challenges of global integration and competition, create organizational and interpersonal networks that are intricately interwoven. By reframing the network metaphor, the author challenges readers to examine the ways in which organizational communication is always embedded in, and influenced by, overlappi

Including the work of top sports communication researchers, Examining Identity in Sports Media explores identity issues, including gender, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, and (dis)ability, as well as the intersections within these various identity issues. This co-edited, twelve-chapter book investigates how various identity groups are framed, treated, affected, and shaped by a ubiquitous sports media, including television, magazines, film, the Internet, and newspapers. While other books may devote a chapter or section to issues of identity in sports media, this book offers a complete examination of identity from cover to cover, allowing identity variables to be both isolated and intermingled to capture how identity is negotiated within sports media platforms. Far more than a series of case studies, this book surveys the current state of the field while providing insight on future directions for identity scholarship in sports communication. Examining Identity in Sports Media is ideal for undergraduate or graduate-level courses in Sports Communication, Sports Media, Media Criticism, Sports Sociology, Gender Communication, and Identity Politics.

For almost four decades, Theories of Human Communication has offered readers an engaging and informative guide to the rich array of theories that influence our understanding of communication. The first edition broke new ground with its comprehensive discussion of theorizing by communication scholars. Since that time, the field has expanded tremendously from a small cluster of explanations and relatively unconnected theories to a huge body of work from numerous traditions or communities of scholarship. The tenth edition covers both classic and recent theories created by communication scholars and informed by scholars in other fields. Littlejohn and Foss organize communication theory around two intersecting elementscontexts and theoretical traditionsand emphasize the connections, trajectories, and relationships among the theories. They provide clear, accessible explanations that synthesize without oversimplifying. Their extensive use of examples presents theorizing as a natural process and invites readers to reflect on their own experiences and to become active participants in continuing the conversation. In addition to the authors lucid explanations of theories, the text includes From the Source boxes in which the theorists share their perspectives on communication. The extensive bibliography (almost 1,200 entries) and chapter citations are invaluable resources for more in-depth study.

Organizational communication as a discipline grew tremendously over the latter part of the twentieth century, but accompanying that growth has been a struggle to establish a clear identity for the field. The ongoing evolution of complex organizations in an equally complex global environment has scholars continuing to define and redefine the focus, boundaries, and future of the field. The New Handbook of Organizational Communication is a landmark volume that weaves together the various threads of this interdisciplinary area of scholarship.

Intended to provide a “century's end” overview of where the entire field of communication is heading, the speeches reprinted here were given at the 1996 national convention of the Speech Communication Association. Some of the most prominent researchers active in the discipline were asked to review the state of the art in their area of specialization, to limn new areas promising for study, and to help chart the course for the further study into the next century. Commissioned by Judith S. Trent, president of the National Communication Association, the speeches reprinted here include valuable and insightful overviews from such diverse areas as interpersonal communication studies, to examinations of the volatile realms of politics and organizations, to discussions of emerging issues like gender, health, and education, to descriptions of the contributions provided by critical lenses like social theory and cultural studies. All provide a broad look at where the field is, where it has emerged from, and, most importantly, where it is going. A joint venture of the National Communication Association and Allyn & Bacon, this volume will serve both as a text for graduate and undergraduate students taking courses like Communication Theory, Communication Education, and Introduction to Communication Studies and as a valuable resource for scholars and teachers in the field. While Allyn & Bacon will make this volume broadly available to its customers and to interested members of the profession free of charge, the text will also be available for course adoption at a reasonable price. Proceeds from sales of the text for class adoption will be placed in a special fund, administered by the National Communication Association, and used to sponsor professional activities for graduate students at future annual national conventions.

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies, or taking an introductory MA course as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. Exploring Intercultural Communication investigates the role of language in intercultural communication, paying particular attention to the interplay between cultural diversity and language practice. This book brings together current or emerging strands and themes in the field by examining how intercultural communication permeates our everyday life, what we can do to achieve effective and appropriate intercultural communication, and why we study language, culture and identity together. The focus is on interactions between people from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and regards intercultural communication as a process of negotiating meaning, cultural identities, and – above all – differences between ourselves and others. Including global examples from a range of genres, this book is an essential read for students taking language and intercultural communication modules within Applied Linguistics, TESOL, Education or Communication Studies courses.

Mobile communication has become mainstream and even omnipresent. It is arguably the most successful and certainly the most rapidly adopted new technology in the world: more than one of every three people worldwide possesses a mobile phone. This volume offers a comprehensive view of the cultural, family, and interpersonal consequences of mobile communication across the globe. Leading scholars analyze the effect of mobile communication on all parts of life, from the relationship between literacy and the textual features of mobile phones to the use of ringtones as a form of social exchange, from the "aspirational consumption" of middle class families in India to the belief in parts of Africa and Asia that mobile phones can communicate with the dead. The contributors explore the ways mobile communication profoundly affects the tempo, structure, and process of daily life around the world. They discuss the impact of mobile communication on social networks, other communication strategies, traditional forms of social organization, and political activities. They consider how quickly miraculous technologies come to seem ordinary and even necessary--and how ordinary technology comes to seem mysterious and even miraculous. The chapters cut across social issues and geographical regions; they highlight use by the elite and the masses, utilitarian and expressive functions, and political and operational consequences. Taken together, the chapters demonstrate how mobile communication has affected the quality of life in both exotic and humdrum settings, and how it increasingly occupies center stage in people's lives around the world.James E. Katz is Chair of the Department of Communication at Rutgers University and director of the Center for Mobile Communication Studies. He is the author of Magic in the Air: Mobile Communication and the Transformation of Social Life and coauthor of Social Consequences of Internet Use (MIT Press, 2002).

The field of organizational communication has mushroomed in the past three decades. Originally viewed as a spin-off from management and organizational psychology, organizational communication is now a major area of research, education, and practice. Studies in organizational communication focus on the messages, meanings, patterns of communication, discourse, and symbols as they aid in defining the nature of organizations. In effect, organizational communication scholars study the dynamic interplay between communication processes and human organizing. This volume assembles in one collection the major works that form the building blocks of organizational communication studies. It chronicles the development of the field through articles that were influential in setting agendas and charting the course of research. Focusing on both mainstream and innovative topics, these volumes contain major works that cross five main arenas of the field, divided as follows: Volume 1: History and Theoretical Perspectives-- covering articles that review the history of the field and formative studies on communication systems; Volume 2: Communication Patterns, Structures, and Images -featuring articles that center on communication networks, media, technology, and organizational images; Volume 3: Relational and Identity Issues-focusing on communication studies of leadership, socialization, identity, and organizational change; Volume 4: Participation, Power, and Gender-centering on issues of democracy, control, resistance, and diversity; and Volume 5: Cultures, Globalization, and Discourse-including studies of communication and culture, discourse, and emotions. No other collection contains such classic and field defining works that represent the central currents of the field. This set is an essential reference volume for students, researchers and scholars in organizational communication, management, organizational sociology, administration, and organizational behavior.
