Save the Date! Please join us (virtually) at the UC Santa Barbara/Department of Communication 2021 Rupe Conference on Communicating about COVID-19. We have an outstanding group of communication researchers and practitioners who will discuss how public institutions, individuals, messages, media, and organizations communicate (or don’t!) about COVID-19. You can attend one or more of the five free Zoom Webinar sessions, from 10:45am-6:30pm on Thursday, May 6, 2021. Each session will offer about 20 minutes for each of three presenters, and about 10 minutes for discussion and Q&A with the audience. See for program, sessions, presentation titles, abstracts, and presenter bios and photos. Go to Shoreline at to register for the Conference and receive your Zoom Webinar link.
