2012 Special Issue: Theorizing Co-Cultural Communication
Mark P. Orbe, Guest Editor
Submission Deadline: October 1, 2011

For years, The Howard Journal of Communications (a Taylor & Francis Group publication) has been recognized as a leading journal of scholarship that explores the inextricable relationship between culture and communication. More specifically, it has consistently featured cutting-edge research that brings the communicative experiences of underrepresented group members from the margins to the center of scholarly inquiry. The Howard Journal of Communications continues its commitment to this mission with a 2012 Special Issue dedicated to Theorizing Co-Cultural Communication.

Co-cultural communication refers to the diverse ways that traditionally underrepresented group members negotiate their cultural locations/standpoints in societies where dominant group experiences benefit from societal privilege and institutional power.  By definition, co-cultural communication research works diligently to increase understanding by exploring communication processes from the perspectives of underrepresented group members themselves. This special issue is interested in projects that work to advance the theorizing of co-cultural communication processes.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that explore co-cultural communication processes (based on race/ethnicity, nationality, socio-economic status, gender, disability, spirituality, sexual orientation, and the like) in diverse settings (interpersonal, organizational, small group, intercultural, and mass media). Manuscripts focusing on all forms of co-cultural communication and methodological frameworks are acceptable; however, preference will given to those authors whose work demonstrates how co-cultural understanding transcends the experiences of a single cultural group within a particular setting. Ultimately, the special issue seeks to produce a volume where communication scholars can draw from a variety of conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches to advance existing knowledge of co-cultural communicative experiences.

The guest editor for the special issue is Mark P. Orbe, Western Michigan University, School of Communication, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI  49009; (269) 387-3132.  All manuscripts must be prepared in accordance to the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and should contain no more than 7500 total words (including tables, references, endnotes, and appendices). An electronic file of the manuscript (including 200-word abstract), prepared for blind review as a WORD document, and a separate file with title of the manuscript, author contact information, brief author bio, key terms, and manuscript history (if applicable) should be submitted to orbe@wmich.edu AND hjcomm@gmail.com no later than October 1, 2011. Authors are strongly encouraged to review the “Information for Authors” prior to submitting manuscripts.
