1.4 Panel Session

Jamming for Justice: Social Justice Research in Communication

9:15-10:30 a.m. Room 203

Many different forms of research fall under the umbrella of social justice; communication researchers who perform this type of research may work in many settings and with many populations. Since this sort of work often involves both improvisation and flexible collaboration between academics and other groups, it can be seen as a form of “jamming” – a group of partners engrossed in exploration and invention that is social rather than musical, but equally experimental and profound.

1.6 Panel Session

Knowledge Management as Communication: A Theoretical Exploration

9:15-10:30 a.m. Room 301

Chair: Claire McInerney, Rutgers University

“A field of study is defined by the problems it addresses” (Saracevic, 1991, p. 61). 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.

2.3 Panel Session

Jazz Goes (Back) To College: Investigating the American Experience

10:45 a.m.- noon Room 201

The 1950s saw jazz emerge as a popular (but alternative) art form on college campuses around the United States. During the 1970s, jazz began penetrating mainstream college music programs. Today, jazz serves—at least potentially—as a major subject of interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary studies of American culture although it is still approached, primarily, from historical or musicological perspectives. One recent pedagogical experiment at Fairleigh Dickinson University identifies jazz as a reflection on the realities encompassed under the “American Experience.”

Lunch Panel Session

Gender and All that Jazz: The Everyday Experiences of Men and Women

This collection of student-authored papers explores the ever-present issues that arise in today’s society when engaging in the performance of gender in our culture. 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.

The three panelists have each coded more than 30 videotaped parent-toddler interactions using the Dyadic Parent-Child Interaction Coding System (DPICS--Eyeberg & Robinson, 1981, rev. 1992), a systematic approach to coding verbal and nonverbal acts of children and parents across a variety of situations. Based on experience coding these interactions, the panelists discuss how this experience influences their development as communication researchers.

Orchestrating the Student Organization: PRSSA as a Case Study

3:30 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. Room 101

Compared with Exxon or the American Red Cross, a student extracurricular organization may at first seem a relatively simple communicative proposition. Yet a group like the Rutgers University chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) faces a complex array of relationship issues in order to provide value and meaning for its members and others--and to thrive and survive from one academic year to the next. 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. The discussion will be informed by communicative insights from Social Interaction Theories, General Systems and Network Theories, and Public Relation Theory.

Theme Session

Communication and Jazz: Two Improvisations on the Metaphoric Opportunities that Communication and All that Jazz Invites

The conference theme is the focus of this session. Communication and All that Jazz invites varied associations, that from the perspective of communication scholarship encourages attention to the interplay of improvisation, participatory space and the existential angst of everydayness through empirical study and for theoretically grounding communication. Two presentations are featured in this session.

Jazz as Communicative Praxis and Cultural Archive: African American Protest and the Avant-Garde

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.

Marc Leverette, Rutgers University

 

How Jazz Musician’s Communicate

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 "standards" and blues and not "free jazz" 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.

             Jennifer Lehr, President, NJCA, Fairleigh Dickinson University

The restructuring of higher education in New Jersey proposed in the initial Report of the Commission on Higher Education in the State of New Jersey, also known as the Vagelos report (September 2002) along with Governor McGreevey’s recent announcement of massive cutbacks in funding for higher education (January 28, 2003) present two highly significant challenges for colleges and universities in the state of New Jersey.  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. 

 

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.  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. 

 

Announcements of the magnitude of the Vagelos Report and Budget Cutbacks typically lead to faculty discussions that are grounded in anxiety, fear and resentment.  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.  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.  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.  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.

Making a Difference:

How Communication Changes Lives

NJCA 7th Annual Conference

This Year’s Theme

 

The theme for annual conference of the New Jersey Communication Association, held at The College of New Jersey, poses a question both so simple that it is addressed at the inception of freshman courses, and yet so complex that it deserves the attention of advanced teacher/scholars. The theme “Making a Difference: How Communication Changes Lives” invites communication scholars, teachers and students to re-examine the differences our efforts make in the lives of others. 

 

Acknowledgments

The officers of the NJCA for their generous support of this conference.

Students, Amanda Botti and Kristin Hassey for their assistance with this conference.

SESSION I. 9:00-10:15 AM

Finding the Canon

Can we identify specific readings that are so germinal, seminal, foundational, or key to our field that every undergraduate communication major ought to have read them, or at least have been introduced to them? Panelists will engage in a moderated round-table discussion among themselves and with audience members to identify key readings for undergraduate communication curricula. Audience members are encouraged to participate by bringing citations and copies of specific readings.

Situating FDU: The Global Challenge

FDU is embracing the global through two key initiatives introduced by President J. 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.

Strengthening the Content of Student Informational Television: A Curricular Experiment

For four semesters now, the Department of Broadcasting at Montclair State University has run a theory/criticism/history elective course in conjunction with its capstone course in television production. 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.

SESSION II. 10:30 - 11:45am

Wired Cities: Communication Infrastructure Then and Now

Cities exist to connect people who live in communities. Infrastructures have always provided the web of connections needed for community life. Developments grounded in telecommunication can reconnect people to cities by recreating urban life through the virtual city or by revitalizing the connection to the physical city but it must be emphasized that that relationship, that connection, has been changed. The infrastructure supplied by media technology is not new but the infrastructure has changed the relationship of the individual to his/her immediate environment (both physical and virtual). The nexus of the infrastructures of the physical and the media worlds were both shaken in lower Manhattan by the events of September 11, 2001. This presentation will examine how the communication infrastructure shapes communication patterns and the lessons learned in the aftermath of the attack on America.

Revealing the Invisible Web: Strategies for Research in Communication

Some of the best Web sources for research are "invisible" when sought through Web search engines like Google or portals like Yahoo! It has been estimated that the numbers of "invisible" resources are enormous, encompassing two to fifty times the number of visible Web sites. Authoritative and current resources, not indexed by search engines, are accessible if you know where to look for them. This panel reveals the invisible Web focusing on successful strategies for finding hidden resources in communication and the social sciences.

Liberal Learning Spaces: Advancing the Tenets of Liberal Education Through Communication Courses

In October 1998, the Board of Directors of the American Association of Colleges and Universities approved a statement that set forth the aims of liberal education for the 21st century. These aims include: (a) Developing intellectual and ethical judgment; (b) Expanding cultural, societal, and scientific horizons; (c) Cultivating democratic and global knowledge and engagement; and (d) Preparation for work in a dynamic and rapidly evolving economy. This panel will initiate an open dialogue with the audience about the ways in which these principles are currently advanced in communication classrooms. The panelists represent divergent areas within communication studies and will offer examples of successful implementation of these values from their own classroom experiences.

Intellectual Property on the Net: Digital Rights Management versus a Community's Right to Share

Digital production and distribution disrupt much of what we have assumed about intellectual property. The exchange that happens between publisher and audience, between producer and consumer, is being redefined in the digital realm. From the music industry's attack on Napster and similar networks, to Microsoft'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.
