[ecrea] Call for papers: Global relationships, international development and the media

Tue Apr 21 18:49:57 GMT 2015

*DSA Media and Development Study Group*

*Call for Papers:*

*‘Global relationships, international development and the media’*

For the DSA Conference 2015: Global Development as Relationship:
Dependence, Interdependence or Divide?

Dates:07 - 08 September 2015
Location: University of Bath

The Media and Development DSA study group is seeking to host two panels
at the annual DSA conference that consider the role that communication
technologies – both new and old – have in enacting the relationships
that are central to processes of international development.
Specifically, we are seeking papers addressing the following questions:

How do communication technologies serve to build relationships that
sustain or challenge global inequality?

How have communication technologies contributed to global
interdependence in ways that either exacerbate or ameliorate poverty?

How do communication technologies help to determine who is
included/excluded from processes of development?

How have communication technologies contributed to the reconfiguration
of notions of nationality, community, neighborhood, family and personal
identity – as they relate to international development?

We also welcome proposals for panels (3 or 4 papers plus a panel
rationale) relevant to other topics related to both media and
international development.  You should submit your paper or panel
proposals according to the DSA guidelines (attached) before the deadline
of Monday 4^th May 2015 to the Media and Development study group
convenors (emails listed below).
