3rd Biennial Philosophy of Communication Conference: The Catholic Intellectual Tradition

Welcome to the 3rd Biennial Philosophy of Communication conference, sponsored by the Department of Communication & Rhetorical Studies and the Communication Ethics Institute.

The conference will be held June 5-7, 2017, at the Duquesne University Power Center in Pittsburgh, PA.

The theme for this year's conference centers on the Catholic Intellectual Tradition with keynote speakers addressing four content areas: (1) Philosophy of Communication and Narrative Ground, (2) Philosophy of Communication, History, and Institutions, (3) Philosophy of Communication and Community, and (4) Philosophy of Communication, Culture, and Mission.

As always, we also welcome papers outside of these content themes that address philosophy of communication.

The conference features an invited speaker for each area:

  • Christopher Lutz: Philosophy of Communication and Narrative Ground
  • Fr. Francis Njoku: Philosophy of Communication, Culture, and Mission
  • Janie Harden Fritz: Philosophy of Communication, History, and Institutions
  • Algis Mickunas: Philosophy of Communication and Community

All individuals with a philosophy of communication interest are encouraged to submit.
