Research

The School of Professional Communication applies interdisciplinary, collaborative research that recognizes traditional scholarship, applied projects, and creative achievements.  Seven RFA faculty members are holding or have held SSHRC grants, reflecting the diversity of our research. In the last two years, faculty members have published 30 peer reviewed articles, 2 books reporting research, 6 chapters in books, and 2 textbooks, and collectively they have presented at 40 conferences.

We would like to invite you to read more about our research by following the links below. You will notice that one of ProCom’s strengths lies in its research conducted with entrepreneurial, societal, and artistic connections: Gregory Levey has co-created a company that facilitates the sharing of digital images between medical professionals; Joanne DiNova is investigating ways of visualizing sound in Aboriginal languages; and Frauke Zeller has co-initiated an art and science project entitled hitchBOT, which has attracted media attention internationally.
