Blue Sky Workshop: Doing Communication History: A Methodological Roundtable

Mon, May 28, 14:00 to 15:15, Hilton Old Town, Floor: M, Mozart II

Session Submission Type: Meeting


Far from being the sole provenance of historians, work in communication history has long been found across the divisions and interest groups of ICA. This Blue Sky Workshop brings together scholars interested in historical research on any topic for a roundtable discussion on methodological approaches to interrogating the past. This discussion will be framed by a panel of established scholars who utilize a variety of historical research methods, including but not limited to archival work, interviews and oral history, visual methods, material culture, and digital methods. Participants will leave the workshop with a sense of the breadth and depth of communication history research, as well as a preliminary methodological toolkit that can be utilized in their own endeavors.
