The Department of Communication Research of the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication is holding the 2nd Communication Research International Conference (CRIC) at the Film Center of UP Diliman on 17 and 18 October 2019.
CRIC 2019 provides a venue for students, faculty, and media professionals across the country to share and disseminate their studies in the field of communication and media. First organized by the Department of Communication Research in 2016, CRIC is the geographic expansion of the National Communication Research Conference, which started in 2012, and the Communication Research Student Conference, which began in 2008.
This year’s theme, “Crossroads and Off-roads in Online Worlds,” explores how the expansion of online communities within and across borders help mainstream or marginalize various ideas, issues, and sectors. The conference thus examines how mediated and non-mediated human communication adopts, appropriates, or disrupts digital inclusions and exclusions. The conference involves plenary sessions with invited speakers and parallel sessions featuring competitive papers. Details are available at https://www.facebook.com/upcmcCRIC/.
The conference is open to everyone, including those who will not present a paper. The registration fee covers the book of abstracts, conference badge, and certificate of participation.
