The School of Communication and Multimedia Studies at Florida Atlantic University is home to multiple communication related journals:
Controversia: An International Journal of Debate and Democratic Renewal is sponsored by the Open Society Institute in conjunction with the International Debate Education Association (IDEA) and is dedicated to the complex of concerns relative to the furtherance of political cultures of democratic communication and the ideals of an open society. Controversia explores the nexus of communication and politics and seeks to stimulate reflection on the role of dialogue, public argumentation, and debate in fostering civic engagement and participatory governance in both emerging and established democracies.
Controversia is co-edited by David Cratis Williams, Associate Professor in the School of Communication & Multimedia Studies, Florida Atlantic University, and Marilyn J. Young, Professor of Communication, Emeritus, Florida State University.
The Journal of Literacy and Technology is an online academic journal exploring the complex relationship between literacy and technology in educational, workplace, public, and individual spheres. Articles and scholarly reviews span from the historical to the cutting-edge, from critical scholarship to applied theory to practice. The Journal of Literacy and Technology provides a free, accessible scholarly forum for all interested parties to explore and debate issues pertinent to novel literacies and digital culture. With Journal of Literacy and Technology, we encourage new spheres of academic conversation, with the goal of making ideologies and assumptions apparent and considering possibilities and alternatives. Noemi Marin, Assistant Professor, Florida Atlantic University, is the executive editor for the Journal of Literacy and Technology.
