Call for papers: Temporalities in Non-Western and Western communication and media studies

April 1, 2019

Temporalities in Non-Western and Western communication and media studies

Deadline for submission of abstracts: April 30, 2019

This edited volume invites scholars from a broad range of disciplines to submit manuscripts on the theme of “Temporalities in Non-Western and Western communication and media studies”. The topic had its peak with every rise of a new medium, with the work of Innis and McLuhan in the 70s in the rise of television at the forefront. With the emergence of the internet as an ubiquitous phenomenon, the topic of temporalities rises to new levels and emergent phenomena with scholar such as Sharma, Wajcman, Qiu and others at the forefront. This call for submissions therefore hopes to contribute towards this emerging discourse on social time and the digital.

Vol 12 No 1 (2019): MeCCSA PGN 2018 Conference: Contemporary News Discourse Around the Globe

The papers presented in this special issue were submitted as part of the Best Paper competition at MeCCSA’s Postgraduate Network conference in 2018. The conference took place on 5th and 6th July 2018 at Canterbury Christ Church University and was organised by Nicholas Furze, Aurora Patera and Emma Kaylee Graves. As there were several high-quality papers submitted for the competition, it was decided that the 2018 conference would have two special issues in Networking Knowledge, instead of the usual one. This issue therefore compliments the previous issue of the journal: MeCCSA Postgraduate Network 2018 Conference Special Issue: Communities and the Media Around the Globe. While the first special issue had a very broad scope in terms of the topics covered by the authors, the current special issue has a more specialised focus on analyses of news discourse.
