VAKKI Symposium 2022

XLII International VAKKI Symposium

February 10-11, 2022 in Vaasa, Finland

1st Call for Papers

VAKKI Communication Research Association arranges a Symposium on February 10-11, 2022 under the theme of Responsible Communication.

Rapid global changes and the challenges they create have increased the significance of responsibility in working life and society as a whole. Responsible communication can be understood as communicating responsibility or as communicating in a responsible manner.

We welcome you to discuss questions of responsibility, power, and communication in the symposium held in February. We will gather together scholars from different fields of research to think about what constitutes responsible communication in society and how we can create communicational cultures that support responsibility.

We call for presentations and workshops, which can focus for example on corporate social responsibility communication, accessibility and diversity, communication practices of work and leadership, responsible science communication, responsibility issues in terminology work, political publicity and journalism, and social media cultures.

The symposium continues the series of VAKKI symposia focusing on workplace communication, expanding the perspective to the domains of science, politics and public discussion.

Given that the pandemic situation allows, the symposium will be held on site in Vaasa. We will however also be prepared to arrange a hybrid symposium. The plenary speakers and a more detailed call for papers will be published in the fall.
