[Commlist] CfP “Global South Diasporic Voices: Rethinking Praxis and Theory in Communication for Development” Journal of Global Diaspora & Media

Thu Mar 21 15:33:56 GMT 2024

*Call for papers for a special issue on “Global South Diasporic Voices: Rethinking Praxis and Theory in Communication for Development” in the Journal of Global Diaspora & Media*

The special issue aims to spotlight the crucial roles of diasporas from the Global South in shaping development narratives through information and communication technologies (ICTs) and beyond.

As the world witnesses significant shifts in global migration patterns, the voices of the diaspora emerge as potent agents in redefining the landscape of Communication for Development (C4D). This call seeks to explore how diasporic interventions challenge existing C4D paradigms by integrating indigenous knowledge systems and leveraging digital diasporas.

We invite contributions that:

  * Offer theoretical reconceptualizations of C4D within the diaspora
    and transnational contexts.
  * Provide case studies on the use of media and ICTs by diasporas in
    development, including social media's impact.
  * Analyze the challenges and opportunities of digital diasporas in
    shaping development agendas.
  * Critically examine diaspora negotiations of identity,
    representation, and politics in media narratives around development.

Submissions should critique existing models, inform policy direction, present innovative integration strategies for diaspora voices in development communication, and reflect diverse methodologies and interdisciplinary approaches.

*Submission Guidelines:*

  * Submit a 400-word abstract including name, institutional
    affiliation, and contact information.
  * Email your abstracts to the guest editors: Carolyn Walcott
    ((carolynwalcott /at/, Maha Bashri ((maha.bashri /at/,
    and Farooq Kperogi ((fkperogi /at/

*Important Dates:*

  * Abstracts Due: April 26, 2024
  * Confirmation of Acceptance: May 20, 2024
  * Full Manuscript Due: September 19, 2024
  * Peer Review Revisions: October 26, 2024
  * Final Submission: January 2025
  * Online First Publication: June 2025

This special issue represents an exceptional opportunity to contribute to the evolving discourse on development communication, offering a platform for voices traditionally marginalized in global development discussions. <>
