Moments of meeting : Buber, Rogers, and the potential for public dialogue by Kenneth N Cissna( )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moments of Meeting tells the story of a uniquely important event in twentieth-century intellectual history, the 1957 public dialogue of philosopher Martin Buber and psychotherapist Carl Rogers, and explores the practical implications of that event for contemporary social and cultural theory. Supported by original historical research, close textual analysis, and a variety of interviews, the book illuminates the careers, theories, and practices of two of the last century's foremost scholars of dialogue, while it clarifies what they shared in common. Following a careful case study of the Buber-Rogers public conversation about the dynamics of dialogue itself, the authors conclude that public dialogue cannot be built primarily upon skillful technique
Dialogue : theorizing difference in communication studies by Rob Anderson( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors consider a wide range of settings--interpersonal, organizational, societal, and political--and look at the methodology as well as the research underpinning dialogic approaches to the study of communication. The core texts of dialogue studies, including Buber, Gadamer, Habermas, and Bakhtin, set the foundation in Part I, Exploring the Territories of Dialogue. In Part II, Personal Voices in Dialogue, the contributors survey one-on-one, small group, and organization dialogue. Part III, Public Voices in Dialogue, examines the spaces for discourse in more expansive public, intercultural, and mediated settings. The editors pull together disparate implications, connections, and new directions in a dialogue-inspired conclusion

Applied communication in the 21st century by Kenneth N Cissna( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The future of the field of communication lies in the ability to produce a socially relevant scholarship, without which the field is unlikely to attract the best students, command significant societal resources, or make its greatest contributions to the world's store of knowledge. This volume presents a report of the first discipline-wide, nationally sponsored communication research conference in 20 years--the Tampa Conference on Applied Communication. As the next millennium approaches, the communication field will be challenged to take its place among the disciplines whose research makes a sub

Communication perspectives on popular culture by Andrew F Herrmann( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular culture helps construct, define, and impact our everyday realities and must be taken seriously because popular culture is, simply, popular. Communication Perspectives on Popular Culture brings together communication experts with diverse backgrounds, from interpersonal communication, business and organizational communication, mass communication, media studies, narrative, rhetoric, gender studies, autoethnography, popular culture studies, and journalism. The contributors tackle such topics as music, broadcast and Netflix television shows, movies, the Internet, video games, and more, as they connect popular culture to personal concerns as well as larger political and societal issues. The variety of approaches in these chapters are simultaneously situated in the present while building a foundation for the future, as contributors explore new and emerging ways to approach popular culture. From case studies to emerging theories, the contributors examine how popular culture, media, and communication influence our everyday lives.--Publisher website
Interpersonal Confirmation A Review of Current Theory, Measurement, and Research by Kenneth N Cissna( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of interpersonal confirmation has been explored at the University of Denver during the past five years. The resultant body of literature--research and theory--remains largely unpublished and is summarized here. The paper briefly reviews the origin of the interpersonal use of the term "confirmation" and offers an initial definition of the phenomenon. The first section of the paper describes a number of empirical investigations which suggest the pervasiveness of interpersonal confirmation. The second section outlines two theories of interpersonal confirmation, one by Evelyn Sieburg and one by Carl Larson. The third section reviews two procedures for measuring interpersonal confirmation. The fourth section discusses completed research using the confirmation paradigm and mentions current research projects. The paper concludes by suggesting that perhaps the concept of confirming communication can bring unity to the discrepant definitions of the term "interpersonal communication." (Author/JM)
Communication and Values An Axiological Reinterpretation of I.A. Richards's Theory of Communication by Michael G Garko( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing that rhetorical theorist I.A. Richards has a significant contribution to make to the continuing dialogue regarding communication and values, this paper examines Richards' thinking concerning the communication-values relationship. The paper notes that the neglect of Richards' work by communication theorists is due largely to a misunderstanding of his perspective--often seen as a narrow positivism holding that values and communication are separate. A reanalysis is proposed, based on the view that Richards was an axiologically oriented theorist concerned with links among choices, values, and communication. The analysis proceeds in three steps: (1) an outline of Richards' theory of value, which synthesizes ideas found in a number of works; (2) a discussion that relates his theory of values to his ideas regarding communication, especially as they appear in his "theory of comprehending" and the associated idea of "feedforward"; and (3) a demonstration of the practical utility of the analysis, conducted by looking at the research on compliance and compliance-gaining, to show how Richards' scheme for understanding the communication-value relationship can inform contemporary communication scholarship.

An Economic Model of Interpersonal Communication by Linda Surbaugh Cissna( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Marxian economic analysis of interpersonal communication within a capitalist system finds that capitalism, with its attendant stress on wholly economic values, produces a commodity-oriented society. Mass media advertising is the primary vehicle through which the capitalist culture indoctrinates the ideas of competition for the intangibles (love, friendship, etc.) as well as the tangible things of the culture. Thus intangibles become commodities. The counter-culture (flower children, purposive dropouts, etc.), community action groups (school liberation, free medical clinics, etc.), and women's liberation offer promise of improvement and rejection of society's consumer-oriented value system.

Crisis Communication Sensemaking and Decision-making by the CDC Under Conditions of Uncertainty and Ambiguity During the 2009-2010 H1N1 Pandemic by Barbara Bennington( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This study focuses on the process of communication between government agencies and the public during crisis situations, and the development of an effective response strategy when a significant threat to public health and/or safety is believed to exist. My specific research interests are (1) the nature of the decision-making process that influences the communicative choices made during such events, and (2) how decision-makers make sense of an evolving, ambiguous, and unpredictable situation, in order to establish credibility with the public, determine the appropriate response strategy, and gain the public's trust in order to influence its behavior. This is a qualitative research study based on a series of in-depth interviews conducted with key staff members of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the CDC's organizational response to the 2009-2010 H1N1 influenza pandemic. As global public health threats have the potential to significantly affect critical areas of the U.S. economy, national security policies are evolving to include strategic planning for issues related to global public health threats. However, despite having faced several serious public health threats during the past decade, governments worldwide and the global public health community continue to struggle with developing sufficient contingency plans and effective response strategies to meet the challenges of unexpected, highly unpredictable, and potentially devastating public health crises. My research addresses gaps identified in exploring the experience of crisis response participants in order to understand the process of response development. Additionally, I identify practices, processes, and recommendations that will be useful for future response teams confronted with equally challenging emerging threat and/or crisis scenarios
