Call for KACA-NCA 2023 Reviewers

Thanks for submitting your research paper to the KACA division to be presented at the NCA this year! Below is the CFP for this year.

The KACA Division seeks submissions that advance the mission of KACA and engage the 2023 NCA Convention Theme “Freedom.” We invite individuals to reflect on the critical role of human communication in understanding what it means to be free, who is free, and the ideals of freedom. What are racial, cultural, social, and intersectional systems of oppression that limit our freedoms? What are historical and future challenges we face that enable and constrain our freedoms? What does freedom, real or imagined, look like for Korean and Korean Americans? We appreciate a diversity of theoretical, methodological, and creative approaches to communication research. 

The KACA Division accepts three types of submissions: (1) individual papers, (2) paper sessions, and (3) panel discussions. We do not accept extended abstracts. All submissions must be made via NCA Convention Central. Emailed or mailed submissions will not be accepted.

  1. Individual Papers: Submissions must include a max 30-page, double-spaced uploaded copy of the paper. Copies must be uploaded into NCA Convention Central and must not include identifying information. Instructions on how to prepare an unidentifiable copy are provided in the Convention Library. Submitters should NOT upload a separate cover page, or an identifying information in the document text or properties. Submissions should include title, abstract (250-word max), keywords, and author information in the appropriate sections of the electronic submission form. AV requests must be made at the time of submission. We recognize the Top Faculty Paper and the Top Student Paper in our division. To be considered as a student submission, all authors must be students and must select student in the electronic form. Submitters interested in being considered for Scholar to Scholar session (poster session) should indicate their interest in the electronic submission form. 
  2. Paper Sessions: Submissions must include a title, overall description (75 words max), and panel rationale (400-500 words). For each paper on the panel, include the title, description (abstract of 150 words or less), and author(s) with contact information. A session chair is required, although respondent is optional. Please provide a clear rationale for the importance of the panel with respect to the mission of KACA and/or the NCA Convention Theme. Paper sessions should avoid single institution representation. AV requests must be made at the time of submission. 
  3. Panel Discussions: Submissions must include a title and session description. Submissions must include a list of each presenter involved. A session chair is required. Please provide a rationale (400-500 words) for acceptance, outlining the importance of the submission. AV requests must be made at the time of submission. 

Deadline for all submissions is March 29, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific.

You do not need to be a member of the NCA or the KACA to submit an individual paper, paper session, or panel discussion. However, if accepted, at least one author will need to (1) register for the NCA convention and (2) attend the convention to present the work. For additional inquiries, please contact the KACA Division Planner: Dr. JongHwa Lee
