Introduction to Communication Studies
What is Communication? Why study it?

Communication: the collaborative construction and negotiation of meaning between the self and others

Communication as Representative
Communication stands in for reality
Communication as Constitutive
Communication shapes reality

What are the differences?
Studying Communication
Communication:
A (very brief) History
The Rhetorical Tradition
The Elocutionists
The Move to Science
Social Construction
The Critical/Cultural Turn

The Critical Perspective
Explores power and privilege
Public Advocacy
Considers cultural differences
How does communication construct ideas of these differences?
How are power and privilege perpetuated through communication?
Critical Thinking
"Put investigations of communication within the context of power… to see any interaction as imbued with cultural consequences" (p. 32).
Reflexivity, Praxis, and Advocacy
Reflexivity is the process of thinking about how we act, why we act, who it enables, who it hurts, and what that means.

Awareness of our own positions within positions of privilege and oppression
“Reflection and action on the world in order to transform it” (Freire).

Even the most basic communication is action -
language shapes and defines our reality

Is critical awareness resistance? Or by participating in oppressive systems, are we consenting?

Praxis
Reflexivity
Advocacy
In what ways are we in positions of power or privilege?
In what ways are we oppressed?
How do we participate?
What do we do/say that encourages/challenges these things?
"To advocate means to engage with others in lasting, meaningful change" (p. 40)

Engaging the public through careful, responsible communication toward an end that seeks a better world for our communities.
