CFP WCA/ABC: Global South and North (New Zealand)

ConferencesCall for Papers: World Communication Association (WCA) and Association for Business Communication (ABC) Conference: The Global South and North: Communication and Cultural Perspectives, July 8-12, 2019, Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand. Deadline: January 15, 2019.

The global South-North divide has been conceptualized in political, cultural, economic, and developmental terms. The North has traditionally been seen as more economically, technologically, politically, and socially developed as well as more industrialized. But the South has been linked with poverty, disease, political tyranny, and overall lack of development. Meanwhile, thanks to the internet and development of smart phones, the gap between the South and the North seems to have narrowed. Limits of time and space seem to no longer exist. People can now share similar experiences and communicate, no matter where they are. Global citizens believe the global community is where they would like to live, despite the many issues we have to solve. To explore the global issues of today, the WCA opens the 2019 conference to you. The WCA is proudly co-hosting this conference with the Association for Business Communication (ABC), which will be hosting the 16th Asian Pacific regional conference along with the biennial WCA conference.
