CFP Public Anthropology: Modeling the Hope

Publication OpportunitiesPUBLIC ANTHROPOLOGY: MODELING THE HOPE. New book series, Center for a Public Anthropology. Deadline: November 5, 2018.

Drawing on the example of the California Series in Public Anthropology, the Center for a Public Anthropology announces a new open-access book series that addresses important public issues.  It embraces the hope that anthropology has value to those beyond the discipline, beyond the university. The focus is on publications that matter to other people – by the power of their ideas and by how, with the help of others, they transform peoples’ lives for the better.

INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION. Each year the Center will hold an international competition seeking out prospective manuscripts that align with this vision. The Series reviews proposals independent of whether the manuscripts themselves have been completed.  The proposals submitted should be 3-4,000 words long and describe both the overall work as well as a general summary of what is (or will be) in each chapter.

CFP Internationalizing the Communication Curriculum

Publication OpportunitiesCALL for Proposals : “Internationalizing the Communication Curriculum in an Age of Globalization:  Why, What, and How.” Abstracts due: May 1, 2018.

Author/Editors: Paaige K. Turner, Ph.D. Soumia Bardhan, Ph.D. Tracey Quigley Holden, Ph.D., Eddah Mbula Mutua, Ph.D.

Universities around the world have begun to participate in the higher education internationalization process in diverse ways, including expanded recruitment of international students, study-abroad programs, dual/joint degrees, and the development of international branch campuses. In the United states, student mobility will more than double from three to more than seven million annually from 2000 to 2025 (Banks et al. 2007; Haddad 2006). Given this trend of globalization and its resulting internationalization of our campuses, it is a timely mandate that we review the current trends in the Communication curriculum and modify it appropriately to adjust to the new global environment.

The goal of this book, therefore, is to facilitate internationalization of the communication discipline in an era of globalization. Section 1 of the book discusses the theoretical perspectives of globalism, internationalization, and the current state of the Communication discipline and curriculum. Section 2 offers a comprehensive understanding of the role, ways, and impact of internationalizing teaching, learning, and research in diverse areas of study in Communication, including travel programs and initiatives to bring internationalization to the classroom. The pieces in this section will include research-based articles, case studies, analytical reviews that examine key questions about the field, and themed pieces for dialogue/debate on current and future teaching and learning issues related to internationalizing the Communication discipline/curriculum. Section 3 provides an extensive sampling of materials and resources for immediate use in internationalization in communication studies; sample syllabi, activities, examples, and readings will be included. In sum, our book is designed to enable communication curriculum and communication courses in other disciplines to be internationalized and to offer different approaches to enable faculty, students, and administrators to incorporate and experience an internationalized curriculum regardless of time and financial limitations.

CFP Critical Intercultural Communication Book Series

Publication OpportunitiesCFP Critical Intercultural Communication Studies Book Series, Peter Lang. Series Editors: Thomas Nakayama and Bernadette Calafell.

Critical approaches to the study of intercultural communication have arisen at the end of the 20th century and are poised to flourish in the new millennium. As cultures come into contact driven by migration, refugees, the internet, wars, media, transnational capitalism, cultural imperialism, and more, critical interrogations of the ways that cultures interact communicatively are a needed aspect of understanding culture and communication. This series will interrogate – from a critical perspective – the role of communication in intercultural contact, in both domestic and international contexts. Through attentiveness to the complexities of power relations in intercultural communication, this series is open to studies in key areas such as postcolonialism, transnationalism, critical race theory, queer diaspora studies, and critical feminist approaches as they relate to intercultural communication. Proposals might focus on various contexts of intercultural communication such as international advertising, popular culture, language policies, hate crimes, ethnic cleansing and ethnic group conflicts, as well as engaging theoretical issues such as hybridity, displacement, multiplicity, identity, orientalism, and materialism. By creating a space for these critical approaches, this series will be a the forefront of this new wave in intercultural communication scholarship. Manuscripts and proposals are welcome which advance this new approach.

For questions or further information please contact Bernadette Calafell (Bernadette.Calafell AT du.edu) or Thomas Nakayama (t.nakayama AT neu.edu).

CFP Latin America Digit@l

Publication OpportunitiesCall for Chapters for the edited book (Routledge), Latin America digit@l: current trends, legal dilemmas and ethical concerns. Deadline: 1 April 2018.

Editor: Dr. David Ramírez Plascencia
University of Guadalajara – System of Virtual University

In Latin America, the use of the Internet in general, and social media in particular, is one of the most significant activities between inhabitants. Social platforms are so important to Latin Americans that in many countries, like Mexico and Brazil, almost all Internet users, more than 200 million in between both countries, have at least one profile on these platforms. And new information technologies are continuously arriving in the region as well, from the internet of things to artificial intelligence, robots, and the instant tracking of transportation and delivery, all of which are conspiring not only to change the domestic social and economic environment, but to transform social and economic links across the region and externally with the outside world. In a real sense, the internet has cut the region’s geographical moorings and plunged it and its inhabitants into an integrated and multi-tiered global virtual space.
