Media researchers from all over the world will travel to Toronto from May 25th to 29th to share their current studies at the largest conference for communication studies, the annual conference of the International Communication Association (ICA)
. Several members of the HBI will also be there to present their work.
This year's theme is "Reclaiming Authenticity in Communication." It is intended to stimulate reflection on "authenticity" in public discourse and why it is a variable rather than a constant these days.
