Abstract: The discipline, as a collective ensemble of voices, offers a cogent discourse regarding methodologies. There are options available now, forms of discourse that were simply not available at an earlier time. The discipline of communication is evolving, becoming something quite different than it was in the mid-twentieth century. That difference can be captured through a discussion of methods and is exemplified by the shift from a limited number to a larger number of methodological choices. That range of choices exemplifies a transformation in how we conceptualize, talk about, and study communication.
