25TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE IAICS – CALL FOR PROPOSALS

12/07/2019 - 15/07/2019

The 25th International Conference of the International Association for Intercultural Communication Studies (IAICS) seeks proposals.

Submissions:

IAICS seeks proposals that consider the following questions:
  • How do cultural and communication scholars understand the shifting discourses around the “West” and its “Others”?
  • How have – fictional and non-fictional – representations of the relationship between the “West” and “Others” evolved?
  • How have the centre and the periphery been re-defined, re-imagined and re-negotiated?
  • What is the role of communication technologies in building connections/divisions in the current climate?
  • How have major policy interventions – such as China’s Belt and Road Initiative – affected intercultural divisions/connections?
  • How relevant are theories of communication/cultural integration developed in Western liberal democracies for understanding current developments?
  • What are the most challenging issues that scholars of intercultural communication face at the moment?
  • Are there historical lessons that can inform our understanding of the impact of technological change on intercultural communication and interaction?

  • 15. 11. 2018: Deadline for proposals
  • 7. 1. 2019: Decisions on acceptance will be communicated
