[Commlist] Call for chapters: Ethnic journalism in the Global South

Thu Nov 14 16:53:48 GMT 2019

We are editing a book *'Ethnic journalism in the Global South'.* The book will be submitted to Palgrave Macmillan in 2020 and if everything goes well will be published as part of the newly launched 'Palgrave Studies in Journalism and the Global South' book series: ;(series editors Bruce Mutsvairo, Saba Bebawi and Eddy Borges-Rey).

In this volume, we will look at ethnic journalism in the Global South through the following lenses:

  * Ethnic journalism as a profession: journalistic practices,
    challenges (economic, technological, social, etc.) to journalists
    working for ethnic media outlets in the Global South,
    education/training of journalists, transformation of journalistic
    roles and functions in the digital age, etc.;
  * Ethnic journalism as a social mission: the role of ethnic journalism
    and ethnic media in safeguarding pluralistic media landscape,
    fostering multicultural understanding and inclusion, protecting
    ethnic identities, languages and cultures in the Global South;
  * Ethnic journalism and digital inequalities: how inequalities in
    access, skills, benefits people receive through being online hinder
    the development of ethnic journalism in the Global South, and what
    the ways to overcome these inequalities can be;
  * Ownership, regulation, production and financing of ethnic media in
    the Global South: how ethnic media are regulated and funded; who
    owns such media; who produces them; how media policy in the Global
    South today protects media outlets in ethnic languages on a broader
    federal and regional/local levels;
  * Ethnic journalism through case study analysis: deeper analysis of
    journalistic practices and ethnic media in the Global South with a
    focus on their managerial and editorial strategies, content
    specifics, target audience, distribution channels, main challenges
    and trends of development in the digital age, etc.
