VAKKI Symposium 2022

January 10, 2022: Due to the pandemic situation and restrictions on public gatherings, VAKKI Symposium 2022 has been moved to be held entirely online.


Welcome to the XLII VAKKI Symposium!

VAKKI Communication Research Association arranges a Symposium on February 10–11, 2022 under the theme of Responsible Communication. 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. The symposium continues the series of VAKKI symposia focusing on workplace communication, expanding the perspective to the domains of science, politics and public discussion.

The plenary speakers are:

  • Associate Professor Martin Hultman (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden): Three decades of obstruction. How to analyze, understand and change communication patterns to avoid being stuck in the knowledge-action gap of climate change?
  • Professor Nina Janich (Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany): Science Communication under the Condition of Uncertainty from the Perspective of Applied Linguistics
