The ICA Handbook Series is a joint venture between the International Communication Association and Routledge. It is a series of scholarly handbooks that represent the interests of ICA members and help to further the association’s goals of promoting theory and research in the communication discipline.
These handbooks serve as benchmark summaries of current communication scholarship and set the agenda for future theory and research in the communication discipline. The series includes handbooks that consider content areas in communication research, methodological approaches to communication research, and theoretical lenses for scholarship in communication. The series volumes attempt to cross sub-disciplinary boundaries to address timely problems of international scope, not just representing different areas of the field but bringing them together to focus on intersecting problems and research interests. Such problems may be formulated as topical concerns (globalization; democracy; gaming and virtual environments; gender and sexuality), theoretical approaches (social cognition; critical studies), or matters of communication in general (communication theory across cultures; communication history).
