Communication and Culture

Mission:  The collection serves the Department of Communication and Culture.  The department was formed in 1998 when a group of faculty members from multiple disciplines including the departments of Speech Communication, Film Studies, Comparative Literature, and English among others came together to form a new department with common, yet interdisciplinary, research and teaching interests.  After the formation of the new department, the Speech Communication Department was dissolved.

Prior to its dissolution the Speech Communication Department, its collection, which included a monograph and journal collection in speech forensics, interpersonal communication, and cross-cultural communication, was housed primarily in the Journalism Library.  After the Journalism Library was remodeled in 2004, those collections associated with the speech communication, and the new Department of Communication and Culture, were transferred to the Herman B Wells Library, Research Collection.
