CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
CASE STUDIES IN INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE
To be edited by
Nazan Haydari & Prue Holmes

We invite submissions for an edited volume on the topic of intercultural dialogue contracted with Kendall Hunt Publishing Company. The growing interest to the concept of intercultural dialogue highlights recognition of the intercultural character of all dialogue processes as they are embedded in and transcend national, political, economic, cultural, religious and historical contexts. It also acknowledges how closely normative assumptions about dialogue are implicated in intercultural communication practices.

The volume aims to make a contribution to the field through the diversity of conceptual and methodological approaches, inclusion of various cultures, contexts and examples, and through the contribution of a diverse number of authors. It draws on cases of intercultural communication in which there is dialogue, conflict or misunderstanding, and presents approaches, theories, and analytical tools that can be used to productively understand and/or resolve the issues presented in the particular examples. The collection approaches case studies as both a way to theorize intercultural dialogue, and as a teaching/learning tool. By defining the concept of “case” more broadly as a real life situation—from a well-defined situation taking place at a certain time and place (e.g. conversations, meetings, classroom settings) to series of events, forms of representation, or organizational structures—the collection aims to cover a range of examples from different cultural contexts. The case studies are structured around the idea that intercultural dialogue is an important component of everyday life, and which is practiced at various levels—from interpersonal communication to media, education, business settings, legal work, action in civil society, and national policy construction, etc. The cases are expected to demonstrate the complexity in the dynamics of intercultural communication, culture, everyday, and identity, and emphasize the building of dialogue at individual, interpersonal, group, and institutional levels. Submissions may address a broad range of issues, including class struggles, international journalism, artistic expressions, interpersonal and workplace conflict, media, education, migration, new media technologies, NGOs working on conflict resolution or in conflict-torn areas, popular culture, race and ethnicity, sexuality, religious diversity, social movements, transnational feminist practices, youth cultures, and war.

Please send an extended abstract of 1000 words by November 21st to both nazan.haydari@yahoo.com and p.m.holmes@durham.ac.uk . Selected abstracts will be notified by November 30th and full papers (of 5000 words including notes and references) will be due 15th of March 2012.

CALL FOR MANUSCRIPTS FOR INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION GAZETTE SPECIAL ISSUE – CRITICAL INTERSECTIONS @ THE CENTER: REFLECTIONS ON CENTRALITY OF INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION IN A CONFLICT-TORN WORLD

Editors: Sudeshna Roy, Stephen F. Austin State University; Ibrahim Seaga Shaw, Northumbria University
Volume 13, Spring 2013

——————————————————————-

The world is experiencing new forms of conflict post 9/11. Some of these are overt military actions and some of them are covert statements of protest. Many of these conflicts arise from cross-cultural tensions, cross-border political goals and tensions arising from multi-ethnic, multi-religious populations. To date, neither mainstream media nor scholarly debate has successfully addressed the issue of how modern conflicts affect intercultural communication both at the theoretical level as well as at the level of specific case studies. In order to curb the flaring up of conflicts or for conflicts to come to sustainable, creative endings, it is important to bring to public attention the key uses and contributions of intercultural communication. In this context, this special issue seeks manuscripts that explore the intersection of intercultural communication, peace research and public activism. The rapid increase of communication technologies has made trans-border understanding and communication more viable today. The special issue, thus, also reflects on the effect of communication technology on intercultural communication in stimulating lasting peace. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: • contribution of intercultural communication to international understanding, peace and security • use of new media/technologies to communicate across cultures in times of conflict • influence of media representation of conflicts on intercultural communication • intercultural communication and cyberactivism • development of normative theories in intercultural communication and peace studies in conditions of cultural pluralism in conflict-affected areas of the world • influence of social media on intercultural communication in times of conflict • elements of intercultural communication in peace journalism • the role of intercultural communication in world politics. Differing methodological perspectives are welcome.

Timing, length, style: Please send completed manuscripts by the November 15, 2011, to the first editor: Dr. Sudeshna Roy, Stephen F. Austin State University roys@sfasu.edu. The maximum length is not to exceed 9000 words. When preparing your manuscript, please click on the link ‘Submit a Manuscript’ on the International Communication Gazette website (http://gaz.sagepub.com/) which provides guidance on paper length, referencing style, etc. Manuscripts will be evaluated by the editors. Special issue papers are handled directly via email with the special issue editors. Aims and Scope International Communication Gazette aims to contribute to a fuller knowledge and understanding of the structures and processes of international communication, the regulatory regimes in the field of international communication, the interaction between international and national flows of communication and the complexities of intercultural communication across national borders.

Translations of research instruments

The following message about collaborative research comes from Prof. Dale Hample at the University of Maryland:

“Hello.  Several of us here at Univ Maryland are getting involved in some large scale international collaborations and an immediate problem is moving our standard English instrumentation into other languages.  We will do it, of course, but I think it’s problematic that we don’t have a community repository of such instruments.  I am willing to put one on the web, and so I’m soliciting contributions.

Our own most immediate need is for versions of the argumentativeness and verbal aggressiveness scales in Chinese and Spanish.  We’re particularly interested in instruments bearing on arguing, conflict, cultural variables (self-construals, etc.), and interpersonal measures.  However, we’ll put up any instruments of general interest to communication researchers.

Ideally, we’d like this material:
1. A copy of the non-English instrument, along with an indication of what English language instrument it corresponds to (perhaps with a citation).
2. Please identify not only the language but also the country it was developed for, if possible (e.g., Spanish phrasing might be pretty different in Spain and Guatemala).
3. An indication of whether the instrument was back-translated, or merely translated.  Or an indication that the instrument was newly developed in that non-English speaking country.  (I assume that the accompanying papers will describe the translation/development methodology; if not, please summarize it.) 4. Copies of any unpublished papers that made use of the instrument, and either copies of or citations to any published papers that used it.
5. The formal name of whoever did the work, so that you (or someone
else) can be properly credited.
6. Contact information for the researchers in case people want to correspond.

I suspect that there are many instruments in the appendices of theses and dissertations, or buried on hard drives.  Please hunt around.  We’ll put up scans and pdfs if you can’t get materials into MS Word.

If you know of an instrument that has been published elsewhere, just send us the citation.”
