MSU at ICA 2023

In late May, faculty and staff of MSU’s College of Communication Arts and Sciences will travel to Toronto, Canada to discuss their research at the 73rd Annual International Communication Association Conference.

The conference theme this year is Reclaiming Authenticity in Communication. Research contributions from ComArts faculty examine how "authenticity has become a variable, rather than a constant, in public discourses and popular culture across the globe, and with what relational, social, political, and cultural implications."

The ICA Conference will take place May 25–29, 2023 in a hybrid capacity with sessions taking place virtually as well as in person. The in-person portion of the conference will be at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto.

Thursday, May 25 | Friday, May 26 | Saturday, May 27 | Sunday, May 28 | Monday, May 29 | Tuesday, May 30 | Wednesday, May 31

ComArtSci presenters are italicized.
