If you are interested in translating one of the Key Concepts, please contact me for approval first because dozens are currently in process. As always, if there is a concept you think should be written up as one of the Key Concepts, whether in English or any other language, propose it. If you are new to CID, please provide a brief resume. This opportunity is open to masters students and above, on the assumption that some familiarity with academic conventions generally, and discussion of intercultural dialogue specifically, are useful.

Key Concept #52: Harmony by Guo-Ming Chen

Chen, G.-M. (2015). Harmony. Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue, 52. Available from: https://centerforinterculturaldialogue.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/key-concept-harmony.pdf

The Center for Intercultural Dialogue publishes a series of short briefs describing Key Concepts in Intercultural Dialogue. Different people, working in different countries and disciplines, use different vocabulary to describe their interests, yet these terms overlap. Our goal is to provide some of the assumptions and history attached to each concept for those unfamiliar with it. As there are other concepts you would like to see included, send an email to the series editor, Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz. If there are concepts you would like to prepare, provide a brief explanation of why you think the concept is central to the study of intercultural dialogue, and why you are the obvious person to write up that concept.

CFP Aging in place vs aging in distance

Call for Submission:
Ageing in Place Versus Ageing in Distance: Improving Age-care through Communication
A Special Section of China Media Research

This special section (CMR-2015-02) invites scholars from across disciplines to address the timely issue of improving the experiences of ageing and age-care through communication within specific social and cultural contexts. Age-care creates a range of challenges not only for the older generation but also for their younger generations. Provision of care to older people is of increasing importance. Internationally, public health policies encourage “ageing in place”; however, the increasing cross-border movements of people result in a sizable population of older people who are or will be ageing outside their home country. “Ageing in distance” can be even more challenging, as older migrants often experience isolation, depression, cultural and communication barriers, and exclusion. They feel belonging to neither “where they came from” nor “where they are residing”. Given the trend of international immigration and population ageing, we face economic, social, and cultural imperatives to support older people to age well either in their homeland or in a foreign land.

We would welcome papers that enhance our understanding of how age and ageing is perceived in different cultures, what roles the mass media can play in constructing and perpetuating stereotypes about older people, how the formal model of community care can better link with the model of family care to form a culturally appropriate age-care model for immigrants in particular and the larger population in general. Topic areas include, but not limited to, stereotypes of older people; social media and older people; cultural assumptions of ageing and age-care; communication campaigns that enhance understanding between older and younger generations, mass media coverage of older people and audience effects, and cross-cultural adjustment of older migrants.

Submissions must not have been previously published nor be under consideration by another publication. We will accept the extended abstract (up to 1,000 words) of the paper at the first stage of the reviewing process. Please email your extended abstract as MS Word attachment to the Guest Editor of the special section, Dr Shuang Liu by July 25, 2014. The complete manuscript must be received by September 5, 2010 after the extended abstract is accepted. Complete manuscripts should be prepared in accordance with APA publication manual (6th ed.) and should not exceed 8,000 words including tables and references. All manuscripts will be reviewed and the authors will be notified of final acceptance/rejection decision. Please visit China Media Research for more information about the quarterly journal, which publishes both printing and online versions. For inquiry, please contact Dr Shuang Liu and/or CMR co-editor, Professor Guo-Ming Chen.
