This year’s theme of the annual meeting of the International Communication Association (ICA)
, the world's largest conference for communication studies, is "Engaging the Essential Work of Care: Communication, Connectedness, and Social Justice."
As in the previous year, the 2021 ICA will be held virtually on a digital conference platform. Participants have recorded their presentations and group discussions in advance, and from 27 to 31 May 2021 these will be available to all conference participants. Everyone who has registered for ICA 2021 will be able to watch and comment on videos around the clock.
As in every year, the HBI will also participate with some contributions.
