Call for Papers: Multilingual, Multicultural, Migrant & Diasporic Radio, for a Symposium in Journal of Radio & Audio Media, to be edited by Anne F. MacLennan and Masudul Biswas. Deadline: August 1, 2022.
Radio connects communities regionally, nationally, and transnationally. Multilingual, multicultural, migrant & diasporic radio connect communities within larger communities crossing boundaries & barriers. This call for papers is for a symposium to be published in the May 2023 issue of JRAM. Editors invite submission of research on the roles of multicultural, multilingual, migrant, and diasporic radio stations in a multicultural society. The scope of research can be geared towards the community radio stations that serve immigrant, refugee, ethnic minority, or diasporic communities. Research on how mainstream radio stations incorporating multi-lingual programming to reach a wide range of audience can fall within the purview of this special edition.
Expressions of interest prior to submission are appreciated but not required (email Anne F. MacLennan and/or Masudul Biswas, with Multilingual, Multicultural, Migrant & Diasporic Radio in the subject line).
