Call for Submissions: Understanding Chinese Communication from the Peripheral: The Marginalized Voices for China Media Research. Deadline: March 21, 2018.
This special section of China Media Research invites scholars from diverse perspectives and approaches to submit manuscripts on the theme of “Understanding Chinese Communication from the Peripheral: The Marginalized Voices.” While the East-West dichotomy is often used to compare Chinese communication and Western communication, this dichotomy tends to result in a monolithic view of Chinese communication. Chinese communication can be understood beyond the center, the mainstream, and the nationality; it can be examined from the peripheral, the marginal, the hybrid, or a community outside of China. This special section aims to examine diverse communication practices that are marginalized in the dominant definition of Chinese communication.
CMR has also issued a second call, for Chinese Rhetorical Tradition and Communication. Deadline: April 2, 2018.
