Synopsis:

Theorizing Communication: Readings Across Traditions is the first collection of primary-source readings built around seven traditions of communication theory― rhetorical, semiotic, phenomenological, cybernetic, sociopsychological, sociocultural, and critical.. The selected readings illustrate the history of each tradition and current trends. Enhancing the readings are introductory essays and sets of projects for theorizing through which the editors highlight contemporary interpretations, new directions, and/or hybrid approaches to studying communication theory.

Key Features:

  • Includes key primary source readings that have helped to define the field of Communication Theory: This collection of readings is not available elsewhere and frees instructors from having to design their own course packs.
  • Offers a comprehensive view of communication theory by not limiting content to a single approach: This book is the first collection of readings on communication theory based on Robert T. Craig′s seven traditions of communication theory.
  • Provides much more than just readings: Original introductions help to explain, locate, and explore complexities surrounding each of the readings. The concluding chapter suggests future directions for the field.
  • Allows students to engage and interact with each tradition: Each unit ends with suggested future readings as well as projects to help students apply and extend the unit′s key ideas.

Intended Audience:

This volume is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in Communication Theory. It can be used as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with other books.

Review: "The editors questions invite readers to connect to the theoretical arguments and assumptions within and across units and move toward connecting communication theory with lived experiences. The connection of communication to lived experiences and the ability of these experiences to inform communication theory are at the heart of Craig and Muller s text."

--David R. Novak (04/14/2010)"

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Theorizing Communication: Reading Across Traditions is the first collection of primary-source readings built around the idea that communication theory is a field with an identifiable history and has developed within seven main traditions of thought-the rhetorical, semiotic, phenomenological, cybernetic, sociopsychological, sociocultural, and critical traditions. These seven traditions are seen as such when looking at the works of communication theorists within the larger idea that conceptions of communication are socially and historically situated and that theories arise when scholars work to make sense of problems or difficulties that are encountered with their sociocultural environments. The readings have been chosen so as to stimulate discussion about the idea of traditions as well as to provide grounding in key concepts necessary to the exploration of particular traditions. This collection is designed to move student readers beyond thinking that theories are something that simply exist and can or cannot be applied. In addition to showing the history of each tradition, the selected readings also highlight contemporary interpretations, new directions, and/or hybrid approaches. Significant original introductions help to explain, locate, and complexity the readings. Each unit ends with suggested further readings as well as in-depth projects that help students apply and extend the unit s key ideas. The volume is designed for a masters or an upper division undergraduate level communication theory class, but also has relevance for others who are interested in understanding the history and diversity of approaches taken to theory in the communication discipline. It can be used as a stand-alone text or to supplement a standard textbook. Bookseller Inventory # AAX9781412952378
