CfP 2018 - IAMCR/Palgrave Series

Palgrave/IAMCR Series: Global Transformations in Media and Communication Research


Since 2014 the IAMCR/Palgrave series Global Transformations in Media and Communication Research reflects the intellectual capital of IAMCR; it constitutes a forum for collective knowledge production and exchange thanks to trans-disciplinary contributions. 


The series editors, are glad to say the series is developing into a rich collection of thought provoking volumes; and we are excited to see the growing interest among IAMCR members to publish through this channel.

We would like to invite you to submit new proposals covering your particular fields of interest, particularly in relation to the inspiring title of the 2018 IAMCR conference – Reimagining sustainability: Communication and Media Research in a Changing World. The challenges ahead are immense, and our community will certainly address themes and issues that are crucial to understand current communication transformations and the role of research in this context.

As Section and Working group heads have now finalized their programmes, and participants are preparing to present their work, we invite you all to use this IAMCR opportunity, through our IAMCR/Palgrave connection, to consider (in particular but not exclusively) edited collections of quality papers.

Advantages for you and the Association

Working through Palgrave/IAMCR would not only offer you an opportunity to get support in writing the initial book proposal; it would also contribute to enrich a body of work that reflects the different thematic components of the Association. Such a body would address, and critically reflect on, the issues of communication, politics and power and their interconnectedness with emerging discourses. It would redefine the traditional-definition of geographical, cultural and disciplinary boundaries.

Contributing to the Palgrave/IAMCR series would support the series' mandate to disseminate and share the wealth of knowledge that flows through our Conferences, taking advantage of the cultural and disciplinary diversity of IAMCR members.

IAMCR/ Palgrave’s series in Eugene

In Eugene, the Palgrave booth will have an overview of the series’ publications and a leaflet showing the titles to be published before the end of this year. We, series editors, would be happy to talk with you – at the conference or via email - about possible themes and approaches, so that ideas could be further developed into fully elaborated proposals, ready for submission to Palgrave in the following weeks. In the meantime, on the IAMCR website you can find further details for proposal submissions.

Please do get in touch with us, Claudia Padovani and Marjan de Bruin, at claudia.padovani (at) and marjandebruin (at)
