Teaching cases are currently being solicited for an upcoming special issue of the Journal of Advertising Education (JAE) dedicated to International and Multicultural Advertising. A teaching case “encourages discussion and investigation, and is always accompanied by an instructors’ manual to guide the user in leading the case in the classroom” (Vega, 2017, p. 2). A special issue on international and multicultural advertising will satisfy a need among scholars and instructors in advertising and related fields for readily available resources that they can use in the classroom.

  • Provides intellectual richness by demonstrating applications of theory
  • Is written in an easy to follow narrative featuring characters and conflict

The structure of the special issue articles will be similar to the general case study format. The article should contain an introduction, literature review and/or background, research questions, methods, results, and references. In addition, the author(s) will need to provide a detailed teaching note describing how to use the case study in the classroom, with examples of discussion questions, assignments, learning objectives, etc. For more information about the structure, please see the templates below:

Cfp: Media Use and Political Engagement: Cross-Cultural Approaches

Posted by on 8:18 am in News, Call for Papers | 0 comments

Media Use and Political Engagement: Cross-Cultural Approaches

Special Section in the International Journal of Communication (IJOC)

Guest editors: Özen Odağ, Frank M. Schneider, Larisa Buhin, & Jinhee Kim

We cordially invite empirical research articles on media use and political engagement taking up a cross-culturally comparative design!!!

Democracies around the world are struggling with the global decline of civic and political engagement, especially among younger generations (Bessant, Farthing, & Watts, 2016; Smith & Thompson, 2015). Recent data from World Value Surveys and the Eurobarometer have yielded alarming results (Whiteley, 2012), showing that young people in most Western countries are increasingly dissatisfied with and disinterested in liberal democracy (Foa & Mounk, 2017; Sloam, 2016). At the same time, this overall decline is paralleled by an increase of new forms of engagement such as lifestyle politics, Internet activism, and political consumerism (Dalton, 2004; 2006; Theocharis & van Deth, 2018).

These developments have contributed to a new understanding of citizenship, one in which citizens are increasingly engaging through informal, creative, participatory, and digitally networked activities, thus moving political engagement into the domain of entertainment and personalized communication (Park, Kee, & Valenzuela, 2009). Activities that formerly took place offline (such as demonstrations, signing petitions, political discussions) have now largely moved into the online sphere and work in concert with offline civic engagement activity. They include a wide range of phenomena such as using social networks to access information, using digital platforms to exchange views, using mobile applications to access government services, and organizing protests on social networks (Bala, 2014). Many of these emergent behaviors are not yet fully understood. Their global rise across the world as expressed in countless examples of collective action in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the USA, however, render them a timely topic to study from a cross-cultural perspective.

Current scholarship focuses especially on the social and psychological factors that connect media use and political engagement (Hsiao, 2018; Hsiao & Yang, 2018; Valenzuela, Correa, & Gil de Zúñiga, 2018). Social identity, efficacy, injustice perceptions, emotions, values, and system justification beliefs have been identified as crucial psychosocial predictors of digitally enabled political engagement (Hsiao, 2018; Jost et al., 2018; Valenzuela, Correa, & Gil de Zúñiga, 2018; Van Zomeren, Postmes, & Spears, 2008).  At the same time, our understanding of these effects has remained insufficient and largely confined to Western democratic contexts (such as Europe and the USA; see Hsiao, 2018, for an overview of this extensive research). Although a few authors have taken up a non-Western perspective and investigated such mechanisms of political engagement in the non-Western world (e.g. Hsiao, 2018; Valenzuela, Correa, & Gil de Zúñiga, 2018; Wibisono, Louis, & Jetten, 2019), current scholarship is impressively void of cross-culturally comparative approaches to the role of media in political engagement.

This Special Section aims to highlight the influence of cultural factors (societies, cultures, cultural identities, political regimes etc.) on the relationship between media use and political engagement. We are particularly looking for cross-culturally comparative empirical studies, both qualitative and quantitative, that deal with the role of media use in political engagement. A central aim of the studies should be to understand cultural variance in the theories that have been produced on the topic. Studies should thus focus on a minimum of two cultural contexts that are compared.

The Special Section is open for a variety of topics. Examples include, but are not limited to:

–          Cross-cultural studies on the role of satirical new media formats, such as political talk-shows and political Internet memes, for political engagement;      

–          Cross-cultural studies on the role of specific social media platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and other non-Western variants, for political engagement;

–          Cross-cultural studies on the role of entertainment media, such as political movies and video games, for political engagement;

–          Cross-cultural studies on the role of political, religious, cultural identity in the relationship between media use and political engagement;

–          Cross-cultural studies on the role of ‘cultured’ emotions and values in the relationship between media use and political engagement;

–          Cross-cultural studies on social-psychological mechanisms in the context of echo chambers, fake news, and propaganda

The review process is two-tiered and comprises the submission of an extended abstract and a full paper. Full papers will be invited only if they are accepted in the prior review of extended abstracts. Extended abstracts are due April 20, 2020; full papers are due September 20, 2020 (see time line below).

The extended abstract (1,000 words max. excluding tables and references) should present previously unpublished work on a topic of clear interest to the Special Section. The extended abstract would typically include information about the cross-cultural purpose, novelty, significance, or knowledge gap being addressed, the cross-cultural methodological design of the study, and present cross-cultural results, conclusions and implications of the work conducted. The extended abstract must provide a title, a short 150-word abstract (not counted towards the 1,000 words), and up to five keywords that identify the thematic focus of the work. If accepted, the final full paper (8,900 words) must be turned in by September 20, 2020. For further details on formatting, author guidelines, and submission process, please visit https://ijoc.org/ index.php/ijoc/about/submissions#authorGuidelines.

Time line:

Submission Extended Abstracts: April 20, 2020

Submission Full Papers: September 20, 2020

Review Process: September 2020 – January 2021

Revision Process: January – April 2021

Resubmission: May 2021

Final Proofs: June/July 2021

Publication: September/October 2021

All papers in the IJOC are published as open access articles without publication fees for the authors. Submissions engaging in open science practices will be given particular consideration in the review process. We also especially welcome preregistered studies.

We very much look forward to your extended abstracts!

Negotiation and Conflict Management Research: Special Issue Call for Papers

Posted by on 7:34 pm in Call for Papers | 0 comments

Global Conflicts and Local Resolution

Submission Deadline: January 2020

Special Issue Editors: Chin-Chung Chao & Ming Xie, University of Nebraska at Omaha 

Nowadays, conflict has been increasingly complex at both the global and local scale. On the one hand, conflict is becoming globalized in relation to the expansion of international markets, boundary-less environmental crisis, the revolution in communication and the media, the rise of international organizations, and developments of international law. The globalization process is fostering and leveraging the interconnectedness and interdependence across cultures and countries, as well as promoting divisive forces and chasm such as east vs. west, north vs. south, capitalism vs. communism. On the other hand, global conflicts are embedded and embodied within local cases. The local actors and local dynamics are crucial for understanding how global conflicts emerge, evolve, and can be resolved. In this special issue, we wish to broaden the topics exploring the intersection of globalization and localization of conflict management and the approaches to address global conflicts such as environmental conflict, cultural conflict, political conflict, and crisis negotiations.

We call for scholars to submit empirical and theoretical papers using qualitative and quantitative methodologies that offer innovative applications for conflict management and resolution including topics such as: 

  • Case studies on how a specific global conflict emerges and evolves;
  • How global conflicts are identified, described, interpreted, and addressed by different people in relation to human thinking, cultural realities, institutions, and societies?
  • The role of information technology: web activism and global conflicts;
  • The intervention, mediation, and arbitration process of conflict management by different entities such as the state, private institutions, local actors, and international organizations;
  • The interaction and dynamics of global force and local impact on conflict management;
  • Content analysis on media coverage of global conflicts such as environmental issues, international trade, and political disputes;
  • Comparative analysis on conflict management within different cultures. 

Please submit your manuscript by January, 2020. Submit manuscripts online at: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/ncmr. When submitting please be sure to click on the “Special Issue” submission link. Please carefully follow “author guidelines” when preparing your manuscript; for author guidelines and more information about submitting your manuscript go to: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/17504716
Provisional Timeline: Manuscript Submissions Due: January 2020

Initial Decisions: March 2020
First Round Revisions Due: May 2020 Final Manuscript Due: July 2020

Please direct topic ideas and special issue inquiries to guest editors: Chin-Chung Chao chinchuchao@unomaha.edu and Ming Xie mingxie@unomaha.edu; contact Qi Wang, NCMR Editor-in-Chief, at ncmr@villanova.edu with inquiries about NCMR.

1. Full length completed research papers. No more than 25 double-spaced pages, excluding references, tables, and figures. Work already presented, published or accepted for presentation or publication should not be submitted. All papers must include a title and a 250-word abstract. Only full length completed papers are eligible for top research awards. Submitters should select “individual paper” as their submission type in the electronic submission form.

2. Extended abstracts (completed research/research in progress). 2-3 single-spaced pages, plus references. Abstracts should clearly state: Aims, research questions, methods, projected results, and keywords (up to 6). The authors must use the individual paper submission type for their initial submission. If accepted, the authors are expected to send the full paper to the session planner no later than 6 weeks before the convention. Submitters should select “individual paper” as their submission type in the electronic submission form.

Individual papers will be blind reviewed by two or three referees/reviewers with expertise in the area. Submitters MUST DELETE ALL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION from the uploaded document before submitting a paper or abstract.

3. Panel Discussion proposal. Panel proposals should include a title, a rationale (2-3 single-spaced paragraphs), a description for the conference online program (250 words), a list of names and institutions of panelists, and summary of each paper/presentation. Panels should avoid single institution representation.

AV requests must be made at the time of submission to be considered.

Please submit your work online using the NCA Convention Central (https://ww4.aievolution.com/nca1901). All submissions must be made by March 27 (Wednesday), 2019 at 11:59 PM Pacific.

Submitters do not need to be a member of the NCA or the KACA to submit a paper/abstract/proposal for the sessions. However, if accepted, at least one author will need to (1) register for the convention and (2) attend the convention to present the work (otherwise, the presentation will be removed from the program).

CfP: North Korea and Communication Preconference at ICA 2019

North Korea and Communication

2019 International Communication Association (ICA) Preconference

May 24, 2019

 

North Korea has been an under-explored area in communication research. Limitations on movement and communication, as well as physical isolation of the country in the global arena, has made it difficult for scholars to produce meaningful research about North Korea. In recent years, however, there have been major developments in the communication infrastructure, with the introduction of cellular phones to the general public, resulting in over 70% of Pyongyang citizens having access. Foreign correspondents from the US, Europe and South Korea have been allowed to set up permanent foreign bureaus. In 2018, the North Korean leader has engaged in fast-paced diplomacy with the US, South Korea and China. Taken together, these changes are leading to a new era in communication about, within and around North Korea.

Considering the historical and geopolitical significance of such developments, it is therefore crucial for scholars to pursue theoretically and methodologically sound research on North Korea. This one-day ICA preconference, supported by the Political Communication and Journalism Studies divisions, aims to bring together leading and emerging scholars around the world to register this shift and examine causes, components and civic consequences of a uniquely isolated – but rapidly changing – country.

The pre-conference also aims to bring scholars together with practitioners including diplomats, journalists, policy makers and those from international organizations, NGOs, and business sectors for constructive dialogue. We encourage submissions from scholars from other disciplines such as political science, international relations, sociology and East Asian studies. Discussions are currently underway to publish presented works in a journal or edited volume.

While we are open-ended about potential topics, we would welcome research in the following areas:

• Works conceptualizing and theorizing changes in the media in and about North Korea in both historical and contemporary contexts

• Works exploring the roles of communication and rhetoric, looking factors related to media (new or traditional), messages (symbolism, keywords), context, or speakers or audiences in a changing North Korea

• Works analyzing emerging norms, practices and routines with regards to the production and consumption of new and traditional media, as well as formal/underground media

• Works looking into Hallyu and popular culture in North Korea

• Works related to intercultural communication and migration

• Works seeking to understand changes in journalism impacting diverse communities — regional, class, gender — within North Korea and its neighbors

 

Submission Process

We invite scholars to submit abstracts (maximum 500 words) of theoretical and empirical research papers.

The submission should be emailed to the pre-conference organizers at nkpreconference@gmail.com no later than January 30th, 2019.

Authors will be informed of acceptance/rejection decisions no later than February 15, 2019.

Accepted abstracts will be posted to the pre-conference website in advance of the event.

 

Registration

All speakers and attendees must register and pay the pre-conference fee. Participation fee (including coffee break and lunch buffet) is $50 for presenters and non-presenters.

To register for this pre-conference, participants need to go to www.icahdq.org and register online as part of their main ICA conference registration, or as a stand-alone registration.
