Professor Terry Flew from the Creative Industries Faculty and the Digital Media Research Centre has been elected a Fellow of the International Communication Association (ICA). The ICA is the world’s oldest and largest communication association, with over 4,500 members worldwide. Its 69th annual conference in Washington, DC was attended by over 3,800 delegates from 67 countries.
Fellow status in the International Communication Association is a recognition of distinguished scholarly contributions to the broad field of communication. Consideration is also given to such criteria as service to ICA and socially or professionally significant service to other publics such as business, government, education, and the community. Candidates are nominated by ICA members, and must receive a majority YES vote from current Fellows, and approval by the Board of Directors, in order to achieve Fellows status.
There are currently 165 ICA Fellows worldwide, and Professor Flew becomes the fourth elected Australian ICA Fellow. Professor Flew is the current President of the International Communication Association, and was organiser of the Washington conference held from May 24-28, 2019. Congratulations Terry!
