CFP Crisis, Conflict, and Cultural Relations in Media Environments

“PublicationCall for Papers: Crisis, Conflict, and Cultural Relations in Media Environments, to be edited by Ahmet Atay (Wooster) and Margaret D’Silva (Alabama, Tuscaloosa). Deadline for Abstract only: October 15, 2020.

In the wake of current cultural, social, and political happenings and due to the ongoing global COVID-19 related health crisis, the role of new media technologies is heightened. The current global pandemic created new cultural and political conflicts, presenting new issues, heightening some of the oppressive structures, and creating newer troubles for members of marginalized communities. As a result, people are turning to media technologies to escape reality, to find solutions, and to create new online communities to belong.

Digital communication connects residents of different countries in an invisible web of entanglement that creates a layered global identity beyond the confines of national borders. Our collective ideas of our past, our perceptions of the present, and projections for the future are influenced by our constantly changing information and communicative environment. This book takes a broad theoretical and applied perspective to describing conceptual links among conflict, crisis, and cultural relations in a mediated world.

This call invites abstracts for an edited book that takes qualitative, interpretive, and critical and cultural perspectives in examining the reciprocal relationship among new media, culture, and crisis in the context of communication.
