Call for Scholarly Chapters on “Social Media in Asia” for publication by Dignity Press in early 2013
“Cui Litang, a language instructor and media expert/specialist colleague in Shanghai, China, and I are interested in receiving chapter proposals for our anticipated co-edited book, “Social Media in Asia,” with an expected publication in the first quarter of 2013 by Dignity Press: a new, small, nonprofit, open access/Creative Commons Attribution license/ print on demand- print and E-book format press, which especially supports the concepts of dignity, social justice, and gender equality. Presently, Dignity Press books are sold on its website, through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other booksellers and will continue to expand over time.
We hope to have an introductory chapter and ten to twelve substantive chapters in the volume. The intended focus suggests scholarly chapters of approximately 25 pages each, plus rich reference lists in the sixth APA Manual style, on such illustrative but not exclusive topics as social media trends; influence; economic, cultural, religious, and political practices; control and censorship in specific Asian regions and the larger countries in Asia and the Pacific Rim. Countries such as Australia, China, India, Indonesia, and Japan and the regions of South East Asia, North Asia, the Korean peninsula, the European “stans,” and Russian Siberia provide illustrative examples for potential chapter emphasis.
Interested scholars should submit a specifically targeted proposal of 200-300 words, plus an up to date resume to me as soon as possible. For the accepted chapter proposals, the deadline for submission of the chapters to me is December 1, 2012, with expected limited print and E-book publication formats in the first quarter of 2013.”
