Book chapter proposals call–communication and conflict transformation
Tom Matyok and Pete Kellett invite brief chapter proposals for our upcoming co-edited book with the working title: Communication and conflict transformation: Leading-edge thoughts, practices, & engagements. If contracted, the book will be published by Lexington Books as part of their new Peace and Conflict Studies Series. They would like to create a book that captures current leading-edge, and emerging thoughts/ideas, practices/ techniques, and engagements/ contexts/ applications around communication as it contributes to the broader (interdisciplinary) discussion of conflict transformation. The book is envisioned as a mix of shorter (3000 word) think pieces and reports on practices and techniques, as well as longer (up to 7500 word) research studies, and as representing the breadth of research paradigms and methodologies, and the novel, valuable, and provocative work currently being done in Communication/Communication Studies regarding conflict transformation and welcome proposals that speak to this goal. They envision completing the contract process by end of this calendar year and will be in touch with a writing timeline for spring at that point. Please email Pete Kellett a working title; name (s) of author (s); and a 75-100 word abstract of your proposed chapter by October 20, 2014.
