Lists of Key Concepts organized chronologically by publication date and number, alphabetically by concept, and by languages into which they have been translated, are available, as is a page of acknowledgments with the names of all authors, translators, and reviewers.

If you are interested in translating one of the Key Concepts, please contact me for approval first because dozens are currently in process. As always, if there is a concept you think should be written up as one of the Key Concepts, whether in English or any other language, propose it. If you are new to CID, please provide a brief resume. This opportunity is open to masters students and above, on the assumption that some familiarity with academic conventions generally, and discussion of intercultural dialogue specifically, are useful.

CFP National Communication Strategy Forum 2020 (China)

ConferencesCall 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.

CFP Global Studies Conference 2020 (Canada)

ConferencesCall for Papers: 13th Global Studies Conference: Globalization and Social Movements: Familiar Patterns, New Constellations? Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, 4-5 June 2020. Deadline: 4 November 2019.

The last decade saw an intensification of social movement activism across the world. In the Global North, widespread discontent with austerity following the 2008 financial collapse gave rise to the Occupy and Indignados movements. In the Global South, political struggles against neoliberalism have been articulated primarily as protests against its institutional embodiments, especially the World Bank and the IMF and their policies of structural adjustment. Other campaigns mobilized against political oppression (e.g., the Arab Spring), racism (e.g., Black Lives Matter), and sexism (e.g., Me Too). Meanwhile, the Tea Party Movement and now Alt Right have shaped activism on the political right. In some mobilizations, such as Gilets Jaunes in France, left and right-wing influences criss-crossed in often contradictory ways. The fact that all these groups are both manifestations of and responses to various aspects of globalization is nothing new. Earlier mobilizations, such as the global justice movement, epitomized by the Zapatistas in Mexico, also expressed global identities and used the technologies of globalization while challenging the dominant version of the process. As a matter of fact, social movements and international non-governmental organizations worked across borders even in the era when state sovereignty was rarely questioned and politics seemed to make sense almost exclusively in national terms. INGOs, whose number has increased exponentially from a few in the nineteenth century to tens of thousands today, are often viewed as indicators of the state of globalization, expanding rapidly when the global system is on an upward trajectory and declining in significance when globalization is on the defensive. This conference aims to explore those and other manifold and often contradictory relationships between social movements and global processes.
