Communication Theory conference in Madeira University

The Portuguese Association of Communication Sciences (SOPCOM) visits the Madeira University with a conference on different aspects on Communication Theory.


Communication theory is a multidisciplinar and complex domain.
In "Communication Theory as a Field" , for example, Robert T Craig proposes seven traditions of communication theory with their own way of understanding communication:
  1. Rhetorical: views communication as the practical art of discourse.
  2. Semiotic: views communication as the mediation by signs.
  3. Phenomenological: communication is the experience of dialogue with others.
  4. Cybernetic: communication is the flow of information.
  5. Socio-psychological: communication is the interaction of individuals.
  6. Socio-cultural: communication is the production and reproduction of the social order.
  7. Critical: communication is the process in which all assumptions can be challenged
Craig, Robert T.  (1999). "Communication Theory as a Field" (PDF). Communication Theory. Blackwell Publishing Ltd.; International Communication Association. 9 (2): 119–161. doi:10.1111/j.1468-2885.1999.tb00355.

I am sure many of these traditions will be present in the speaker's presentations.
