[ecrea] CFP: Futures of Communication

Fri Dec 30 21:38:42 GMT 2011

*communication +1 *invites submissions for its inaugural issue,
entitled *Futures of Communication.*

We seek works that will pronounce or propose futures for the study of
communication by pushing beyond the borders of established research
programs. To that end, this issue intends to feature writings that promise
to raise new questions about communication as well as suggest lines of
inquiry rethematizing communication as constitutive of our social being in
all its articulations.

Our hope is to encourage interdisciplinary perspectives that foreground
mediation as the primary area of analysis. Exploratory studies or
reflections on emergent theories and practices regarding mediation are
particularly welcome.

Please submit a proposal of 500 words or less by March 2nd, 2012 to
(communicationplusone /at/ Final drafts will be due June 15th, 2012,
with an expected publication in August.

Although there is no set word limit, suggested length for the final
submission is between 4500 and 7000 words.

*About communication +1:*

*communication +1 *provides an open forum for exploring and sharing ideas
about communication across modes of inquiry and perspectives. Its primary
objective is to push the theoretical frontiers of communication as an
autonomous and distinct field of research.

Suspending any judgment regarding distinction between theory and practice,
this forum encourages critical reflections on communication and seeks to
encourage these reflections to and among those who place communication at
the center of their thinking and writing.

*communication + 1 *promotes multiple approaches to communication, and it
arrives in multiple forms. For more information about the project in
general, as well as short pieces, lectures, and interviews, visit
