Gender at the Forefront: Feminist Perspectives on Action Theoretical Approaches in Communication Research DAFNA LEMISH Abstract Feminist research is inherently linked to action, since it integrates scholar- ship with activism and seeks a fundamental social change. As such, it studies communciation processes as action-oriented on two complimentary levels: (a) action within the perpsective of meanings created as a result of active negotiations with texts by specifically socially-situated audiences; and (b) social action the perspective that understandings of

DE GRUYTER MOUTON DOI 10.1515/commun-2013-0017 Communications 2013; 38(3): 289–313 Stefanie Averbeck-Lietz Pathways of intercultural communication research. How different research communities of communication scholars deal with the topic of intercultural communication Abstract: The following article deals with intercultural communication research as a (potential) subfield of communication studies. The broader aim is to con- tribute to the history as well as to the systematization of the field of intercul- tural communication research. The author is mapping three

natural modes of communication, useful for designing good user interfaces and natural interactions with robotic systems; linguists gain the knowledge of tools and methods from computer vision, audio signal processing and machine learning to analyze large amounts of data. We see an opportunity to create a collaborative and distributed social and physical infrastructure for data-driven multimodal communication research. We can draw inspiration from other sciences in which cooperatives of researchers with diverse backgrounds were established to share the gathering of data

Systems approaches and communication research: The age of entropy SHELTON GUNARATNE Abstract This essay examines the contemporary approaches to systems theory, the strengths and limitations of these approaches, and how communication re- searchers can apply them creatively. It points out that using system ap- proaches requires communication scholars to study the mutual interaction of both information inputs and matter/energy inputs. Overloads of these inputs coupled with storage problems could engender positive feedback loops and move the system away from the

Martina Franzen 28  Reconfigurations of science communication research in the digital age Abstract: This article is dedicated to the sociological problem of what digital change means for science communication. Without giving definitive answers, at least relevant questions should be generated to explore the extent and depth of digitalisation as a sociotechnical process. One of the central effects of the digital shift is the emergence of large amounts of data. This fact still has to be taken into account in research on the digital transformation of science

Perspectives for Research and Academic Training in Europe's Changing Media Reality Everette E. Dennis 2  Beginnings: Origins of Mediated Communication Research Abstract: Considerable work has been done to retrieve the history of mass communi- cation research over several decades, but the history of mediated communication has no such legacy since the term is of relatively recent origin. However, understanding the trajectory of research on mediated communication benefits from a review of the history of mass communication and media research. Since there is no unified field theory that fully explains
