      Public lectures on Communication, Ethics, and Conflict in the Middle East

      San Jose State University and the International Colloquium on Communication
      will host two public lectures on Communication and Ethics dealing with
      issues resulting from the conflict in the Middle East.  Dr. Edith Slembek,
      University of Lausanne (Switzerland) will discuss "The conflict around the
      Muslim headscarf;" and Dr. Gary Selnow, San Francisco State University,
      will present "When Communication Takes a Holiday: The Ethical Implications
      of a Communication Kibosh in Iraq."  Slembek is a founder of the
      International Colloquium on Communication begun in Heidelberg, Germany in
      1968.  Selnow is the founder of WiRED International, a non-profit
      organization which has recently provided information and communication
      resources to the people of Iraq. Selnow won the 2004 President's Medal for
      Service at SFSU. Each short lecture will be followed by a forum allowing
      ample audience participation and will be presented Tuesday, July 27, 2004
      from 2:00-3:30 PM in room 225 of the new King Library. This will be the
      public session of the bi-annual International Colloquium on Communication.
      Everyone is welcome.  Free of charge.

      On the Colloquium

       The International Colloquium on Communication is a consortium of American
      and European professors of communication.  It was founded
      thirty-six years ago through the cooperative efforts of the National
      Communication Association and the Gesellschaft fur Sprechwissenschaft und
      Sprecherziehung for the purpose of fostering the exchange of ideas and
      theories between American and European communication scholars.  The
      Colloquium meets biennially, alternating between Europe and the United
      States for conference locations.  Recent meetings have been held in Berlin,
      Germany (2002), Boston, Massachusetts (2000), Budapest, Hungary (1998), and
      San Francisco, California (1996).

       Each conference is dedicated to a research issue in communicationstudies.
      Papers represent many research perspectives and the emphasis
      of the colloquium is on bringing together scholars from different areas of
      the discipline to share ideas on the common theme of the conference.
      To facilitate this common theme, participation is limited to approximately
      thirty scholars who present academic papers over a five day period.

      This year's Colloquium is being held at San Jose State University from
      July25-30, 2004.  The Tuesday afternoon plenary session of the colloquium
      is free of charge and open to the public.  Two presentations in this public
      session will deal with issues arising from conflict in the Middle East.
      The remainder of the Colloquium will treat the larger topic "Communication
      and Ethics in Conflicts."  The various papers will examine the role and
      interaction of communication and ethics in conflicts from a variety of
      methodological perspectives; will provide conceptual explorations of the
      relationships among communication, ethics, and conflicts; will present
      contemporary or historical case studies of the place of communication and
      ethics in the generation, prevention, conduct, or resolution of conflicts;
      or they will link descriptive and theoretical
      approaches in various ways.  Local hosts for the conference are:
