For the past 55 years, the International Communication Association (ICA) has provided a venue for scholars and researchers to share ideas and findings in all aspects of the field of communication through its expanding publications program and its annual conference. The Association also works to increase visibility for communication scholarship and to foster research internationally. Communication Yearbook 29 centers on the theme of Communication and the Future. Authors in this volume address the future as they review 12 diverse areas of communication research. There have been many changes in the world, and this volume addresses questions such as: Has the discipline of communication kept up with change? Have we adapted to new technology and moved forward in our thinking? What do we as a discipline have to say about the future? Are there new areas in which we should be making a contribution? And are there new ways of looking at long-standing lines of communication research? The focus of this volume is on what we can do as communication scholars to make a difference in everyday life and in the future. Communication Yearbook 29 is an important reference for scholars and graduate students across the field of communication.

Strategic Communication for Non Profit Organisations

Communication in the public sphere as well as within organizational contexts has attracted the interest of researchers over the past century. Current forms of citizen engagement and community development, partly enabled through digital communication, have further enhanced the visibility and relevance of non-profit communication. These are performed by the civil society, which is 'the organized expression of the values and interests of society' (Castells, 2008) in the public sphere. Non-profit communication feeds the public sphere as 'the discursive processes in a complex network of persons, institutionalized associations and organizations,' whereas those 'discourses are a civilized way of disagreeing openly about essential matters of common concern' (Jensen, 2002). Despite the relevance in the public sphere, non-profit communication was never properly defined within communication research. The aim of the present book is to offer an overview and report on Strategic Communication for Non-Profit-Organisations and the Challenges and Alternative Approaches. Considering the assumption that a key principle of strategic communication is the achievement of organisational goals, the majority of research developed in the field has used business environments to develop theories, models, empirical insights and case studies. Here, we take a step towards new approaches centred on the concept of non-profit in various dimensions and from various perspectives, showing the diversity and complexity around this subject and at the same time the need of further theoretical and empirical work that provides frameworks and also tools for further understanding of the phenomena.

Die in diesem Band versammelten Beiträge entstanden im Rahmen des Forschungsprojekts "Massenmedien und Wähler". Täglich erhobene Daten über das gesamte Jahr 1994 ermöglichten es, die Dynamik der Entwicklungen von politischen Einstellungen und Wahlabsichten detailliert nachzuzeichnen, deren Einbindung in Problemsichten herauszuarbeiten und den Einfluß von massenmedial vermittelten Ereignissen auf die längerfristigen politischen Konzepte der Wähler zu untersuchen. Daraus ergaben sich neue Antworten auf verschiedene zentrale Fragen der Wahlsoziologie und der Medienwirkungsforschung. Der Kern besteht in der Erkenntnis, daß der Einfluß der Medienberichterstattung und tagespolitischer Erkenntnisse auf die politische Meinungsbildung geringer einzuschätzen ist, als in den letzten Jahrzehnten in der Regel angenommen wurde. Das Wahlverhalten ist bei den meisten Wählern nach wie vor in kognitive, evaluative und soziale Strukturen eingebunden, die nicht kurzfristig veränderbar sind und die sich noch immer machtvoll auswirken.
