Communication professors present papers at international conferences in China

Two professors in the Department of Communication Studies at Fort Hays State University recently presented papers at two international conferences.

Dr. Margaret Butcher, assistant professor, and Dr. Carrol Haggard, associate professor, presented "Adapting Sino and U.S. Global Communication: Ethnocentrism and Intercultural Willingness to Communicate" at the 16th International Association of Intercultural Communication Studies convention in Guangzhou, China.

"Communication that Matters: A Comparison of Ethnocentrism and Willingness to Communicate in Chinese and U.S. Students" was presented to the Intercultural Communication Division of the International Communication Association convention in Singapore.

Both papers were part of their ongoing research program, which examines the linkage between ethnocentrism and intercultural willingness to communicate.
