Beginning with foundational chapters concerning the role of goals in interaction, this text provides readers with a detailed summary of the seminal theories in interpersonal message design, as well as in–depth analysis towards their practicality in our current understanding of communication. Authors focus on understanding the importance of these theories in the discipline today, as well as the potential evolution of these theories for future theoretical and practical application.
Within this book, message design is presented via treatises spanning from individual differences to the contextual factors impacting the message production process. Contributors representing both original theorists as well as other renowned scholars in interpersonal communication and message design provide unique and powerful insights into one of the disciplines most important areas—message design. This book will serve as an excellent resource for graduate coursework examining message design, theory, and theory construction. It will also be of essential interest to scholars researching any interpersonal message design phenomena.
