Turkish, American scholars
meet at Elon and UNC


Turkish and American communications scholars gathered at Elon University and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill May 11-13 at a conference titled "Communication in the Millennium."

Leading U.S. scholars Max McCombs and Werner Severin of the University of Texas-Austin, David Weaver of Indiana University and Donald Shaw of UNC joined 35 Turkish scholars at the events at Elon. Topics covered included cinema/radio/TV, marketing communications, advertising, public relations, media and communication theory and agenda-setting.

The Turkish-American exchange of information has been taking place in a series of conferences over recent years. The next meeting will take place at Anadolu University in Turkey in 2006. The symposium is held to encourage a dialogue between the two countries' communication scholars and make stronger already established dialogues.

Dean Paul Parsons and Associate Dean Brad Hamm welcomed the international scholars and served as hosts. Professors Kelli Burns, Jessica Gisclair and Glenn Scott served as session moderators, and Gerald Gibson served as the technology resource person during the symposium at Elon.
