Exploring the Shifting Contours of Communication
Edited By Patricia Moy and Donald Matheson
This edited volume on voices arose from the 2018 International Communication Association conference in Prague, Czech Republic. The contributions examine the conference’s central theme from multiple epistemological approaches, a host of methodologies, and numerous levels of analysis. They reveal how studying voice—or the plurality of voices—illuminates the process by which it is fostered and/or constrained as well as the conditions under which it is expressed and/or stifled. More important, the study of voice sheds light on the process by which it impacts behaviors, defines relationships, influences policies, and shapes the world in which we live. In other words, studies of voice are not relegated to a few domains, but interface with myriad discourses, actors, processes, and outcomes.
This volume is the product of numerous individuals whose names appear as contributors, those whose intellectual legacy has shaped the scholarship presented herein, and those whose experiences have informed our understanding of what voice means and/or can mean. We are immensely grateful for the sustained efforts of Rico Neumann, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Communication at the University of Washington, whose keen eye for detail and dedication provided peace of mind. Throughout this project, we are especially grateful for the support of our respective families, friends, and colleagues who continuously remind us of the importance of living among a plurality of voices.
