With the goal of exploring new, disciplined approaches to communication
studies, The Communication Review seeks a synthesis of concerns traditional
to the field of communication and humane studies scholarship. The journal's
heuristic division of the field into three analytical perspectives provide a
natural structure for creating new knowledge across conventional
disciplinary boundaries:

* Communication and Culture - exploring questions of meaning and
interpretation in the interdisciplinary tradition of cultural studies and
critical social science.

* Communication as a Social Force - focusing on the historical evolution and
contemporary transformation of mass communications, telecommunications, and
information systems, emphasizing their political-economic, technological,
and institutional dynamics.

* Communication and Individual Consciousness - examining the individual
socially constituted through language and other media in their cultural and
economic contexts.

The editors view these as different theoretical perspectives on the study of
communication processes. The journal is interested in a variety of
theoretical challenges to, and perspectives on, orthodox categories in our
field. We invite submissions from those employing critical theoretical,
historical, and other empirical approaches to a range of topics under the
general rubric of communication research.
