The precise nature of Knowledge Management (KM) and its potential to make contributions to society has been subject to lively debate in the last two decades. The current body of literature concerning KM demonstrates the difficulty in clearly articulating the distinction between KM and Information Management (IM). The goal of this panel is to explore these issues and bring into question whether or not KM practices can be usefully implemented as mediated communication processes. We will draw upon the work of McInerney (2002) and Weick (1995, 2002) for our theoretical underpinning.</p><p>Panel: <strong>Michael Cole</strong>, <em>Rutgers University</em><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Stewart Mohr</strong>, <em>Rutgers University</em><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Dawn M.

First, some historical perspective is offered by examining how images of women in World War II propaganda began to shape our understanding of the role of the woman in the family and the workplace. Second, theoretical and pragmatic examinations of print advertisements and contemporary film are offered to examine how these performances of gender have moved forward in time to constrain the roles of both women and men. Finally, the panel concludes by looking at the family structure and the ways in which parent-child relations affect romantic relationships later in life. </p></blockquote></blockquote><p>Chair: <strong>Jennifer K.

This panel employs PRSSA as an organizational case study, and presents an analysis of relationship issues through the personal perspectives of PRSSA leaders who have been active in the organization for at least a year.

Two presentations are featured in this session. </p><em><p>Jazz as Communicative Praxis and Cultural Archive: African American Protest and the Avant-Garde</p></em><p>Marc Leverette a doctoral student in the Communication, Information and Library Studies doctoral program at Rutgers-New Brunswick examines the political improvisations performed by pioneering jazz practitioners in reaction to the everyday conditions of socially reproduced injustice that characterize the public sphere in which they found themselves thrown.</p><p><strong>Marc Leverette</strong>, <em>Rutgers University</em></p><em><p>&nbsp;</p><p>How Jazz Musician&rsquo;s Communicate</p></em><p>In various jazz history courses Professor Ed Berger has taught through the years, he has always included a segment on how jazz musicians communicate among themselves. It always amazes those unfamiliar with jazz performance how several musicians who may never have played together (or even met each other) can come together and give an entire concert with no rehearsal and no written music. This covers primarily the performance of &quot;standards&quot; and blues and not &quot;free jazz&quot; which has its own dynamic. Together with colleague Vincent Pelote, Professor Berger examines forms of the music itself (i.e. proscribed chord changes and song forms) which permit this type of improvisation within a set of universally accepted conventions by taking a typical recorded performance and diagramming it from start to finish as the students listen to it. Ed Berger and Vincent Pelote, members of the esteemed Institute for Jazz Studies at Rutgers-Newark, also consider on-stage communication, such as visual and spoken cues, in this invited presentation.</p><p><strong>Ed Berger</strong>. <em>Rutgers University-Newark</em></p><p><strong>Vincent Pelote,</strong> <em>Rutgers University-Newark</em></p></font></font><font size="2"><p>&nbsp;</p></font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"><p>4.6 Lambda Pi Eta Meeting (See 1.7)</p></font><font size="2"><p>9:15 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. Room 303 </p></font> <p align="center">The New Jersey Communication Association 8th Annual Conference<br /><br />Communication and All That Jazz<br /><br />Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey<br />School of Communication, Information and Library Studies<br />4 Huntington Street<br />New Brunswick, New Jersey</p><font face="Arial Black" size="2">Get <a href="http://njca.rutgers.edu/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id=27">directions to the conference</a>.<br /><br />Saturday, March 27, 2004, 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.</font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"> <p>REGISTRATION &amp; BREAKFAST</p></font><p><font face="Times New Roman">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Registration<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2nd Floor Lobby, SCILS Building.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Breakfast<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; SCILS Student Lounge (2nd Floor) and SCILS Faculty Lounge (3rd Floor).</font></p><p><font face="Arial Black" size="2">CONFERENCE WELCOME</font></p><font face="Times New Roman"><p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 9:00 a.m. - 9:10 a.m.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Room 212</p></font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"><p><a href="http://njca.rutgers.edu/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id=26#MORNING">MORNING SESSIONS OF THE 8TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE</a></p><p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 9:15 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 10:45 a.m. - noon <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; All Sessions are Scheduled in the SCILS Building</font></p></font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"><p><a href="http://njca.rutgers.edu/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id=26#LUNCHEON">CONFERENCE LUNCHEON &amp; NJCA BUSINESS MEETING</a></p></font><font face="Times New Roman"><p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 12:15 p.m. -1:45 p.m.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; NJCA Business Meeting<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Brower Commons, College Avenue<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Lunch also available <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2nd Floor, SCILS Building</p></font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"><p><a href="http://njca.rutgers.edu/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id=26#AFTERNOON">AFTERNOON SESSIONS OF THE 8TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE</a></p></font><font face="Times New Roman"><p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2:00 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 3:30 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; All Sessions are Scheduled in the SCILS Building</p></font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"><p>CONFERENCE RECEPTION AT THE ZIMMERLI MUSEUM</p></font><p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 5:00 p.m. - 7 p.m. <br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Conference Reception featuring the music of the New Jersey-based jazz group <strong><em>JazzSquad</em></strong>. &nbsp;<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Zimmerli Museum, Corner of George Street &amp; Hamilton Avenue </p><font size="2"><p>&nbsp;</p></font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"><p align="center"><a name="MORNING" title="MORNING"></a>MORNING SESSIONS OF THE 8TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE</p><p align="center">9a.m - 10:30 a.m.</p><p align="center">&nbsp;</p><p>1.1 Panel Session</p><p>Symphony of Synchronicity?

The precise nature of Knowledge Management (KM) and its potential to make contributions to society has been subject to lively debate in the last two decades. The current body of literature concerning KM demonstrates the difficulty in clearly articulating the distinction between KM and Information Management (IM). The goal of this panel is to explore these issues and bring into question whether or not KM practices can be usefully implemented as mediated communication processes. We will draw upon the work of McInerney (2002) and Weick (1995, 2002) for our theoretical underpinning.</p><p>Panel: <strong>Michael Cole</strong>, <em>Rutgers University</em><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Stewart Mohr</strong>, <em>Rutgers University</em><br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>Dawn M.

Second, theoretical and pragmatic examinations of print advertisements and contemporary film are offered to examine how these performances of gender have moved forward in time to constrain the roles of both women and men.

Two presentations are featured in this session. </p><em><p>Jazz as Communicative Praxis and Cultural Archive: African American Protest and the Avant-Garde</p></em><p>Marc Leverette a doctoral student in the Communication, Information and Library Studies doctoral program at Rutgers-New Brunswick examines the political improvisations performed by pioneering jazz practitioners in reaction to the everyday conditions of socially reproduced injustice that characterize the public sphere in which they found themselves thrown.</p><p><strong>Marc Leverette</strong>, <em>Rutgers University</em></p><em><p>&nbsp;</p><p>How Jazz Musician&rsquo;s Communicate</p></em><p>In various jazz history courses Professor Ed Berger has taught through the years, he has always included a segment on how jazz musicians communicate among themselves. It always amazes those unfamiliar with jazz performance how several musicians who may never have played together (or even met each other) can come together and give an entire concert with no rehearsal and no written music. This covers primarily the performance of &quot;standards&quot; and blues and not &quot;free jazz&quot; which has its own dynamic. Together with colleague Vincent Pelote, Professor Berger examines forms of the music itself (i.e. proscribed chord changes and song forms) which permit this type of improvisation within a set of universally accepted conventions by taking a typical recorded performance and diagramming it from start to finish as the students listen to it. Ed Berger and Vincent Pelote, members of the esteemed Institute for Jazz Studies at Rutgers-Newark, also consider on-stage communication, such as visual and spoken cues, in this invited presentation.</p><p><strong>Ed Berger</strong>. <em>Rutgers University-Newark</em></p><p><strong>Vincent Pelote,</strong> <em>Rutgers University-Newark</em></p></font></font><font size="2"><p>&nbsp;</p></font><font face="Arial Black" size="2"><p>4.6 Lambda Pi Eta Meeting (See 1.7)</p></font><font size="2"><p>9:15 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. Room 303 </p></font> 8th Annual Conference - Papers and Working Session 2008-12-13T12:41:32Z 2008-12-13T12:41:32Z http://njca.rutgers.edu/conference/past-conferences/25-8th-annual-conference-papers-and-working-session.html Andy Mudrak do_not_reply@njca.rutgers.edu <h1 align="center">2004 Conference of the NEW JERSEY COMMUNICATION ASSOCIATION</h1><p align="center">Saturday, MARCH 27, 2004,<br />8am-7pm Communication and All that Jazz</p><p>The 8th Annual NJCA Conference offers scholars, students and professionals from academia, industry and government a forum for the open exchange of ideas, information and research about communication. <br />The School of Communication, Information and Library Studies (SCILS) at Rutgers University is host to the 2004 conference whose theme is Communication and All that Jazz.

The challenges presented by the Vagelos Report and the apparent inevitability of Budget Cutbacks have not only short-term but long-term implications for the future of higher education in our state.&nbsp; </p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">The goals of this panel are to (1) encourage a disciplinary based appreciation of the implications of these two recent developments and (2) motivate a climate of participation among faculty and departments of communication across institutions in the state that contributes to planning the Future of Higher Education in New Jersey.&nbsp; These goals seek to encourage faculty in Communication and its allied disciplines across institutions to develop a collective voice in assessing and adapting to the the impact of these developments, and to foster commitment to proactive engagement in planning the Future of Communication in Higher Education within New Jersey.&nbsp; </p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">Announcements of the magnitude of the Vagelos Report and Budget Cutbacks typically lead to faculty discussions that are grounded in anxiety, fear and resentment.&nbsp; While such reactions are understandable, as they reflect what people generally do when change appears inevitable (and yet is also ill-defined in its qualities), the impact of such reaction destabilizes individual and collective investment.&nbsp; Such reactions also have the clear potential to increase the divide between administrative/planning bodies and faculty at large as the former continues to face the need to develop pragmatic and strategic responses institutionally.&nbsp; It is our goal most generally to steer the panel and audience discussion in a direction that encourages future thinking and planning across communication programs in New Jersey, as to Mission, Goals and Collaborative Opportunities.&nbsp; That is to say, our goal is to encourage a climate of proactive participation in planning the role of communication in the future of higher education in the State of New Jersey.</p><p style="text-indent: 0.5in" class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt">The Role of Communication in Health Issues: An Interactive Simulation of<br />College Drinking-Related Decisions, <em>Social Science 129</em></span></strong></p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal">Co-chairs: Linda Lederman and Lea Stewart, Rutgers University</p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt">Roundtable: The Joys &amp;

The challenges presented by the Vagelos Report and the apparent inevitability of Budget Cutbacks have not only short-term but long-term implications for the future of higher education in our state.&nbsp; </p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">The goals of this panel are to (1) encourage a disciplinary based appreciation of the implications of these two recent developments and (2) motivate a climate of participation among faculty and departments of communication across institutions in the state that contributes to planning the Future of Higher Education in New Jersey.&nbsp; These goals seek to encourage faculty in Communication and its allied disciplines across institutions to develop a collective voice in assessing and adapting to the the impact of these developments, and to foster commitment to proactive engagement in planning the Future of Communication in Higher Education within New Jersey.&nbsp; </p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p style="line-height: 12pt" class="MsoNormal">Announcements of the magnitude of the Vagelos Report and Budget Cutbacks typically lead to faculty discussions that are grounded in anxiety, fear and resentment.&nbsp; While such reactions are understandable, as they reflect what people generally do when change appears inevitable (and yet is also ill-defined in its qualities), the impact of such reaction destabilizes individual and collective investment.&nbsp; Such reactions also have the clear potential to increase the divide between administrative/planning bodies and faculty at large as the former continues to face the need to develop pragmatic and strategic responses institutionally.&nbsp; It is our goal most generally to steer the panel and audience discussion in a direction that encourages future thinking and planning across communication programs in New Jersey, as to Mission, Goals and Collaborative Opportunities.&nbsp; That is to say, our goal is to encourage a climate of proactive participation in planning the role of communication in the future of higher education in the State of New Jersey.</p><p style="text-indent: 0.5in" class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt">The Role of Communication in Health Issues: An Interactive Simulation of<br />College Drinking-Related Decisions, <em>Social Science 129</em></span></strong></p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal">Co-chairs: Linda Lederman and Lea Stewart, Rutgers University</p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p><p class="MsoNormal"><strong><span style="font-size: 12pt">Roundtable: The Joys &amp;

Michael Adams in the second year of his presidency: a distance learning initiative and a global education initiative. Both of these missions come together in a class that all first-year students take called the Global Challenge. Taught by faculty of all disciplines, this course investigates challenges to humankind, such as those raised by environmental degradation, modern warfare and deadly infectious diseases. In addition to using the wealth of information available on the Internet, students also have the opportunity to interact with experts from around the globe as well as classmates and faculty members. As such, not only are students learning how to use the Internet as a communication tool, they are gaining experience with intercultural communication as well, all while learning to become global citizens.</p><p>Chair: Jennifer K.

Michael Adams in the second year of his presidency: a distance learning initiative and a global education initiative. Both of these missions come together in a class that all first-year students take called the Global Challenge. Taught by faculty of all disciplines, this course investigates challenges to humankind, such as those raised by environmental degradation, modern warfare and deadly infectious diseases. In addition to using the wealth of information available on the Internet, students also have the opportunity to interact with experts from around the globe as well as classmates and faculty members. As such, not only are students learning how to use the Internet as a communication tool, they are gaining experience with intercultural communication as well, all while learning to become global citizens.</p><p>Chair: Jennifer K.

The purpose of this collaborative effort has been: (a) to use the research component of the elective course as the basis for the content of student work in the production course; and (b) to strengthen the conceptualization, research, and writing of projects in an otherwise fast-paced, demanding, and professionally-oriented production course. This panel presents a discussion of the thinking behind this curricular experiment, including its successes, modifications along the way, and remaining questions. It also includes short excerpts from some of the student productions.</p><p>Chair: Thomas Gencarelli, Montclair State University</p><dl><dt>Participants: </dt><dd>Thomas Gencarelli, Montclair State University </dd><dd>Valarie Harper, Montclair State University </dd><dd>Rachel Iovine, Montclair State University </dd><dd>Larry Londino, Montclair State University </dd></dl><p><strong>Media Reflections: Studies of Media Influence and Portrayal.

The exchange that happens between publisher and audience, between producer and consumer, is being redefined in the digital realm. From the music industry&#39;s attack on Napster and similar networks, to Microsoft&#39;s recent sly changes to its licensing policies, to the worldwide market in pirated digital products, this is a crucial and completely unresolved communication issue.</p><p>Chair: James Irwin, Okazo Corporation</p><dl><dt>Participants: </dt><dd>Daniel Agatino, Monmouth University </dd><dd>Steven Cameron, Fairleigh Dickinson University </dd><dd>James Irwin, Okazo Corporation </dd><dd>David Milley, Corporate Communication Institute at FDU </dd></dl><p><strong>Newspaper Coverage of Controversial Issues: Spatial Considerations.
