GENERAL INFORMATIONThe purpose of the Association for Chinese Communication Studies (ACCS) is to promote research and teaching that highlights communicative behavior pertaining to Chinese culture. Members are concerned with understanding Chinese communication, exploring how Chinese communication is similar to and different from communication practices in other cultures, building theoretical paradigms of Chinese communication, and embracing similarities and bridging differences of communication between Chinese and people around the globe.

Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the theoretical, empirical, and practical research that is related to Chinese communication in the following areas: intercultural communication, cross-cultural communication, cultural adaptation and health-related consequences, intercultural communication competence, globalization/localization, identity development and dynamism/intersectionality, media flows, issues of representation, new media across/within Chinese communities, and activism. Submissions that cut across disciplines and utilize various methodologies and theoretical perspectives are also encouraged.
