Call for Applications: Postdoctoral Fellowship, Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania (USA). Deadline: February 1, 2019.
The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for a “CARGC Postdoctoral Fellowship.” This is a one-year position renewable for a second year based on successful performance. The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (CARGC) produces and promotes scholarly research on global communication and public life. As an institute for advanced study dedicated to global media studies, we revisit enduring questions and engage pressing matters in geopolitics and communication. Our vision of “inclusive globalization” recognizes plurality and inequality in global media, politics, and culture. Our translocal approach fuses multidisciplinary “area studies” knowledge with theory and methodology in the humanities and social sciences. This synthesis of deep expertise and interdisciplinary inquiry stimulates critical conversations about entrenched and emerging communicative structures, practices, flows, and struggles. We explore new ways of understanding and explaining the world, including public scholarship, algorithmic culture, the arts, multi-modal scholarship, and digital archives. With a core commitment to the development of early career scholars worldwide, CARGC hosts postdoctoral, doctoral, undergraduate, and faculty fellows who collaborate in research groups, author CARGC Press publications, and organize talks, lectures, symposia, conferences, and summer institutes.
CARGC postdoctoral fellows work on their own research, typically a book manuscript, and collaborate with staff and postdoctoral, doctoral and undergraduate fellows. They may design and teach one undergraduate course during their second year. They present a CARGC Colloquium and publish one CARGC Paper with CARGC Press. Fellows are provided a stipend of $50,000, a research fund of $3000, health insurance, a work space, computer and library access.
Call for Papers: World Communication Association (WCA) and Association for Business Communication (ABC) Conference: The Global South and North: Communication and Cultural Perspectives, July 8-12, 2019, Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand. Deadline: January 15, 2019.
The global South-North divide has been conceptualized in political, cultural, economic, and developmental terms. The North has traditionally been seen as more economically, technologically, politically, and socially developed as well as more industrialized. But the South has been linked with poverty, disease, political tyranny, and overall lack of development. Meanwhile, thanks to the internet and development of smart phones, the gap between the South and the North seems to have narrowed. Limits of time and space seem to no longer exist. People can now share similar experiences and communicate, no matter where they are. Global citizens believe the global community is where they would like to live, despite the many issues we have to solve. To explore the global issues of today, the WCA opens the 2019 conference to you. The WCA is proudly co-hosting this conference with the Association for Business Communication (ABC), which will be hosting the 16th Asian Pacific regional conference along with the biennial WCA conference.

Pariyadath, R. (2018). Transnationalism. Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 93. Available from:
The Center for Intercultural Dialogue publishes a series of short briefs describing Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue. Different people, working in different countries and disciplines, use different vocabulary to describe their interests, yet these terms overlap. Our goal is to provide some of the assumptions and history attached to each concept for those unfamiliar with it. As there are other concepts you would like to see included, send an email to the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz. If there are concepts you would like to prepare, provide a brief explanation of why you think the concept is central to the study of intercultural dialogue, and why you are the obvious person to write up that concept.
