Dialogue : theorizing difference in communication studies by Rob Anderson( )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,474 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 )

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

Facilitative communication and interpersonal relationships : an empirical test of a theory of interpersonal communication by Kenneth N Cissna( )

3 editions published between 1975 and 1982 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to test a theory of interpersonal communication in non-therapeutic relationships. The theory was derived primarily from the work of Carl Rogers and Robert Carkhuff in psychology and from Evelyn Sieburg's theory of interpersonal confirmation in speech communication. In order to test the three generated hypotheses, a sample of 30 couples was randomly selected from University of Denver married student housing. Data were collected in the couples' homes in two sessions. One session involved each person completing three instruments which provided measures of perceived confirmation, personal growth, and intimacy. The couples were asked to have a twenty minute discussion with one another during the other session. Some of the findings were that there is a moderate relationship between the facilitative communication of each person and the extent to which the other feels confirmed; there is no significant relationship between the level of personal growth exhibited and the degree to which the person communicates in facilitative and self-disclosing ways to the other; and there were important and significant differences between the sexes regarding these results.

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

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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.

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 1 WorldCat member library 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 1 WorldCat member library 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.
