Reminder: Call for Two Volumes of Emerald Studies in Media and
Communication on Latin America



VOLUME 12: ICTs and the Politics of Inclusion in Latin America



VOLUME 13: Brazil: Media from the Country of the Future



Deadline: March 15, 2016



Emerald Studies in Media and Communication is delighted to announce the
call for 2016.

We are inviting submission of original, unpublished papers for two volumes
to be published on Latin America with guest editors from Argentina and
Brazil.

Thanks to a short publication cycle, authors will see their work in print
within 12 months of submission by the deadline.



Submissions should be 6,000-12,000 words in length inclusive of abstract,
references, and notes.

British or American spelling may be used. While no special formatting is
requested at the outset, upon acceptance authors must format their
manuscripts in accordance with the series' guidelines.

Contributions will be peer-reviewed through editorial screening and
anonymous refereeing by external reviewers. ​For more information, please
see http://www.emeraldmediastudies.com/



VOLUME 12: ICTs and the Politics of Inclusion in Latin America



This volume assembles relevant research focusing on ICTs in Latin America.
The mobile broadband revolution is taking place in Latin America.

Despite various constraints faced by Latin American countries, the spread
of mobile telephony and broadband Internet has reached very high levels
even among low-income populations.

However about half of the continent’s population remains unconnected, and
the benefits of connectivity have been slow to materialize.
Submissions may examine any aspect of the theme of digital divide in Latin
America and the politics of digital inclusion.
We welcome submissions on different dimensions of the theme such as mobile
youth identities, technology affordability, school transformation by
digital media, the diffusion of e-commerce platforms and digital technology
in SMEs.
We are interested in submissions that address theoretical and/or
methodological issues on the topic.



Guest Editors: Hernan Galperin, Alejandro Artopoulos, and Jason Beech





VOLUME 13: Brazil: Media from the Country of the Future



This volume assembles research on any aspect of Brazilian media and
communication in its various forms.

The parameters are set as broadly as possible as long as the research
speaks to a facet of the topic as defined in the call for submissions.

Submissions may be empirical, theoretical, or methodological--using any
method or approach.

The volume aims to encompass research on emergent phenomena, as well as
studies with a historical or longitudinal dimension.

Comparative studies are welcome as long as Brazil is one of the central
case studies.



Guest Editors: Sonia Virgínia Moreira, Monica Martinez, Heloisa Pait,
Joseph D. Straubhaar, Antonio C. La Pastina, Samantha Nogueira Joyce, and
Pedro Aguiar
