IAMCR and SFSIC have organized a series of events to encourage the building of international bridges between researchers across different communities. The workshops in this series are dedicated to research in the histories of communication studies. We have invited contributions which are concerned with the ways in which contemporary social problems are addressed by our research into communication, information, and media. A call of papers was published during spring 2016 requesting original historical analyses of the concepts, paradigms, methods, institutions, educational programmes, features and figures which have structured communication studies, and which are firmly located in the many contexts which have produced them. The aim is to gather a diversity of perspectives on the history of our field, that together will demonstrate its complexity and interdisciplinarity, as well as historical contestations and counter-narratives.

A first workshop was organized at the SFSIC Congress on June 10, 2016, in Metz, France. Six authors from different countries presented in English or French their papers to discuss this thematic. Six others authors will do the same during this workshop.
