Columbia, Mo. (April 30, 2007) — Missouri School of Journalism researchers will present 31 scholarly papers next month at the 2007 conference of the International Communication Association, one of the leading communication-related academic organizations.

The 57th annual ICA conference will take place May 24-28 in San Francisco, Calif. With topics ranging from corporate social responsibility to online citizen journalism, the papers Missouri Journalism faculty and students will showcase at ICA represent the School’s year-round commitment to research on important mass media and communication issues.

Two of Missouri’s student-produced papers earned recognition as top studies in their divisions. Doctoral student Kyle Heim received the Top Student Paper award in the journalism studies division for his paper, “Editor’s Notes and Transparency: What Do Major Newspapers Deem Newsworthy?” In the public relations division, Jiyang Bae, PhD ’06, now at Ewha Womans University in South Korea, and master’s student Sun-A Park will present “Corporate Social Responsibility as a Crisis Communication Strategy: Korean Journalists’ One-Way Metaperception Toward Samsung’s $847.6 Million Donation” during the Public Relations Top Student Papers session.

Another highlight of Missouri’s 2007 ICA delegation is senior Rachel Bailey, an undergraduate strategic communication major from Iberia, Mo. Bailey will present “Individual Differences in Motivated Processing of Highly Arousing, Positive TV Advertisements,” a paper she coauthored with faculty members Kevin Wise and Glenn Leshner. She will be one of the few undergraduates presenting at the conference.

In addition to those presenting scholarly papers, several Missouri Journalism faculty members will participate in the conference as session organizers, chairs or respondents. Assistant Professor Paul Bolls organized 13 sessions for ICA’s Information Systems division and will chair two sessions. Other faculty members chairing sessions include Stephanie Craft, Leshner, Wayne Wanta and Wise. Wanta also will serve as respondent for a session in the political communication division.

The International Communication Association was formed in 1950 to bring together academicians and other professionals with a shared interest in human communication. The Association maintains an active membership of more than 3,400 individuals, of which some two-thirds are teaching and conducting research in colleges, universities and schools around the world. Other members work in government, the media, communication technology, business, law, medicine and other professions.
