New book series on intercultural communication and education
New Book Series, Series Editor: Prof. Fred Dervin, Department of Teacher Education, University of Helsinki, Finland
Post-Intercultural Communication and Education (Cambridge Scholars Publishing)
This book series, eclectic in scope, seeks to extend and revitalize scholarship on intercultural communication and education by publishing innovative, interdisciplinary and critical analyses of intercultural encounters. “Post-intercultural” refers to a recent paradigm shift in the way the ‘intercultural’ is conceptualized and researched, which lays more emphasis on the ‘inter-‘ and plural identities rather than on the ‘-cultural’ when dealing with questions of migration, glocalization, digitalization, and Otherness. The primary objectives of the series are to challenge e.g. differentialism, culturism and neocolonialism in research on the ‘intercultural’. The series encourages the exploration of new and creative research methods that move beyond methodological nationalism and imaginaries. The series publishes high-quality single-authored or edited volumes.
The published volumes will appeal to an international readership interested in new insights into interculturality: practitioners (teachers/consultants), policy makers, scholars, and advanced students.
Topics (amongst others):
- Research methods and the ‘intercultural’
- Identity and the ‘intercultural’
- Language and the ‘intercultural’
- Social justice and the ‘intercultural’
- Intercultural competence
- Immigration, mobility and expatriation
- The ‘intercultural’ online
- Business and the ‘intercultural’
- Political discourses on the ‘intercultural’
- The ‘intercultural’ in the media and art
- Worldviews/religion and the ‘intercultural’
- Gender and the ‘intercultural’
Please submit the following if you are proposing a new book:
*Introduction for, and summary of, the work. We recommend that this be no longer than 1,000-1,500 words, but are happy to receive longer introductions and summaries where you judge this to be appropriate.
*A sample chapter. In the case of collections of essays where it is not possible to provide an introduction, or where a sample chapter is not yet available, some other published works of medium-sized article-length should be submitted. This work should, if at all possible, be on the same subject as the proposed book.
*A survey of other works in the field which might compete with the proposed one, and a brief argument demonstrating why the proposed work will, despite competition, be of value to libraries and scholars.
*A survey of the market for the book. Who will read it, and why they will want to buy it.
*The approximate length of the book, including all end-matter such as appendixes, bibliographies, and indexes. The number of photographs that are required.
*A CV for each author or volume editor
