CMJ 202: Communication Theory

This page introduces you to a range of communication theories and paradigms. First, in this video, San José State University professors Kathleen McConnell and Andrew F. Wood present three perspectives to help you distinguish between various theories of communication.

Second, University of Hawaii professor Yoshitaka Miike presents an overview of non-Western communication theories for cross-cultural and intercultural research, in this book chapterNon-Western theories of communication: Indigenous ideas and insights.

Third, consider additional forms of communication that you encounter online, like YouTube videos, when looking at approaches to communication, such as Abigail Echo-Hawk's Decolonizing Data: Restoring Culture, Building Beauty, and Indigenous Research as Storytelling.
