Call for Chapter Proposals: Tentative Title: From Branding to Diplomacy: Cities in the International Arena. Deadline: November 1, 2018.
Efe Sevin (Reinhardt University, Waleska, GA), and Sohaela Amiri (Pardee RAND Graduate School, Santa Monica, CA) are editing a book on the internationalization of cities, tentatively entitled From Branding to Diplomacy: Cities in the International Arena. Building on the existing studies in the field, we position this book as a way to launch into a larger discussion on cities and their role in international relations. They invite contributions that focus on the role of cities as actors in the international arena. They are looking for three broad approaches to city diplomacy: (1) theoretical approaches to the study of city diplomacy, (2) new methods and methodologies in city diplomacy, and (3) case studies. Abstract submissions of no more than 500 words, along with author name(s) and bio sketches of no more than 200 words should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1. Questions about the project can be directed to the co-editors, Efe Sevin and Sohaela Amiri. More information about the project can be found at http://bit.ly/CfPCities (link case sensitive).
