Call for Abstracts: Special Issue of Frontiers in Communication: Communication of Culture and Islamic Fundamentalism Deadline: 31 January 2022.
This Research Topic is planned to coincide with the ongoing political developments in Afghanistan, and the emergence and re-emergence of Islamic fundamentalism throughout the world. Editors of the special issue (Diyako Rahmani, Jiyar Aghapouri, & Soumia Bardhan) invite submissions on a broad range of topics related to the communication of Islamic fundamentalism. They encourage submissions and commentary from multiple disciplinary perspectives including cultural and media/communication studies, sociology, political science, human rights, and other relevant fields. While this Research Topic is open to the studies of Islamic fundamentalism broadly, it will put particular emphasis on the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan as a case to illuminate the theoretical and empirical caveats concerning the socio-cultural and socio-political impacts of fundamentalist ideologies.
