This is a two-semester, eight-credit Communication Honors Capstone course on Dialogue, Discourse, Identity and Community. This course also serves as an Integrative Experience for the Communication major. In the first semester (Fall 2012), we will cover a broad range of theories and methods for studying various aspects of the relationship between concepts of dialogue, language, identity, community based research and citizenship. Additionally, students will learn methods of dialogue facilitation and will participate in dialogues in class. Each student will develop a proposal to conduct an original research project on some relevant topic in the theory and practice of dialogue. The second semester (Spring 2013) will be devoted to the implementation of your individual research projects; each will culminate in an archivable Honors Thesis. For general Capstone guidance, see
