Intercom is an opportunity for anyone (students, faculty, professionals) from the communication community to gather over lunch, present papers, get feedback, network, and exchange ideas. Organized by a group of graduate students from the Department of Communication, Intercom is an excellent opportunity for students and professionals doing interdisciplinary communication research to discuss new ideas while giving feedback on others’ work.

Intercom’s call for papers


Are you doing Communication related research?

Graduate students at the Department of Communication are organizing a colloquia series, Intercom, and are looking for individuals interested in presenting their ideas and receiving feedback. If you are a professor or student from any faculty or department, or private sector researcher, doing interdisciplinary communication research and are interested in participating, let us know!

What is Intercom?

Intercom will be an informal opportunity for students, faculty, and professionals from the communication community in Ottawa to gather over lunch, present papers, and get feedback, network, and exchange ideas. Intercom convenes the third Wednesday of the month starting on November 25, 2009.

What’s in it for ME!?

Intercom will be an excellent opportunity for individuals doing interdisciplinary communication research to expand their academic skill set both as presenters and as an active audience. The series will be focused on new and ongoing research by students, faculty, and private sector researchers alike, so everyone can benefit from feedback on their own theses, research papers, books, or other ongoing work. What’s more, it will be fun!


If you are interested in presenting at Intercom on Novermber 25, 2009, please send us a copy of the paper/manuscript/whatever you would like to discuss,  with an abstract of no more than one page, to before November 7, 2009.
