Call for Abstracts: Special issue of Journal of International and Intercultural Communication: The subcontinent speaks: Intercultural communication perspectives from/on South Asia. Deadline: January 31, 2019.
Guest Editors: Shaunak Sastry (University of Cincinnati) and Srividya Ramasubramaniam (Texas A&M University).
“We are calling for 200-500-word abstracts for a special issue of the Journal of International and Intercultural Communication. This special issue is dedicated to showcasing cutting-edge intercultural communication research from/on South Asia, a geopolitical entity that corresponds to the nation-states of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. The internationalization of the discipline of Communication continues to engender critical questions around the locus of knowledge production and theorizing in its various sub-fields. Rather than conceive of South Asia as a unitary or monolithic cultural space, we hope to showcase, through this special issue, the multiple, contested and conflicting understandings around culture, identity and power that inhabit the South Asian context.
