Divisions: Communication and Technology
Group Pages

The Communication and Technology (CAT) Division brings together scholars who research about the roles played by information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the processes of human communication. CAT seeks to enhance theory and methodology pertaining to adoption, usage, message content, communication networks, effects, and policy of ICTs. Areas of research include new media, social media, human-computer interaction, computer-mediated communication, mobile communication, “big data,” crowdsourcing, and other technologically mediated social interaction and networking in all contexts (personal, friends, family, groups, organizations, business, healthcare, collective action, politics, government, education, society, culture, intercultural) and at all levels of analyses.
