Comm. 1 9/29/09 Conceptualizing Communication Contexts - Conceptualizing involves all the factors that go into “it”, or what makes “it” up. - Comm. is An exchange of meaningful symbols A process: an ongoing, systematic activity Contextual: dyads, groups, media, etc - Contextual levels: Intrapersonal, interpersonal, small group, public, organizational, intergroup/intercultural, and mass. Researchers fit themselves into these various categories. - People try to break down the boundaries between the categories; these labels can be multi-level. - Intrapersonal communication within a person (within yourself) - Examples: Talking to yourself Diary/scrapbooking Sneezing, coughing, or giving signs of being sick Reading Thinking about other people, and processing information - Big overlap in the field with social psychology. The main difference is that with psych you deal with memory issues/ communication with the brain, whereas in comm. we deal with processes of getting “there”.
