On Monday, 31 January 2011, the editors of the Catalan Journal of Communication and Cultural Studies (CJCS) presented the first special issue in Tarragona (Spain). The same day, a conference entitled “Re-specifying risk in interactional terms: the implications for risk communication research” was held by Tom Horlick-Jones, Professor at the School of Social Science, Cardiff University, and guest co-editor of the special issue.
Around 50 persons assisted at the presentation and conference that followed at the Catalan university. The editors also announced the theme of the second special issue, which will deal with Tourism and Communication.
