The International Communication Association has over 4,000 members globally and aims to advance the scholarly study of human communication by encouraging and facility in excellence in academic research worldwide. According to the ICA Conference website, the theme, “Reclaiming Authenticity in Communication,” invites communication scholars to examine how authenticity has become a variable, rather than a constant, in public discourses and popular culture across the globe, and with what relational, social, political, and cultural implications.
