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 11 No 2 (2018): MeCCSA Postgraduate Network 2018 Conference Special Issue: Communities and the Media Around the Globe

On 5th and 6th July 2018, MeCCSA’s Postgraduate Network held their annual conference at Canterbury Christ Church University. The event was organised by Nicholas Furze, Aurora Patera and Emma Kaylee Graves, all of whom have contributed to the creation of this special issue. The papers presented in this special issue are each based upon presentations given by attendees of this conference. With the inclusive theme of media, community and culture, the conference saw a wide variety of scholarship from contributors based in the UK and beyond. As a result, the four papers that make up this issue vary greatly, but are all related in that they each consider communities’ relationships to the media around the globe.
