Call for Papers: Global Communication and National Development: Building Communities Across Borders, Renmin University, Beijing, China, June 18, 2020. Deadline: 30 December 2019.
Renmin University of China’s School of Journalism and National Communication Strategy Research Center proudly announce the 2020 National Communication Strategy Forum on “Global Communication and National Development: Building Communities Across Borders.” The Forum will be held in Beijing on June 18, 2020.
The Forum aims to address some of the urgent and far-reaching issues related to the complex and dynamic interrelationships between global communication and national development. We witness in the recent years the emergence of an array of digital communication technologies such as ubiquitous networks, social media platforms, big data, artificial intelligence, etc. The emergence and increasingly widespread use of these technologies has brought about new possibilities in cross-cultural communication among people and nations, in the re-media/tion between the physical world and the virtual world, and in the trans/formation of new forms of cross-border networks and human communities. But while these cutting-edge digital technologies have facilitated much excitement and development opportunities in diverse industries and commercial enterprises, art and entertainment fields, as well as various aspects of national development, they have also bought about numerous social, economic, political and cultural issues or challenges, especially from the perspectives of intercultural communication and international relations.
