PRism special issue (volume 15, issue 1)

Deadline: August 12, 2019 (to be published in December 2019)

In this special issue, we welcome rigorous and original contributions that explore Indigenous voice as a space for theorizing communication. We welcome submissions that examine Indigenous/First Nations as participants in the generation of transformative knowledge claims. This can include but is not limited to:

  • Indigenous/First Nations communication practices (including traditional forms e.g. storytelling)
  • Indigenous/First Nations activism for social justice
  • Indigenous/First Nations struggles for voice and sovereignty
  • The role of Indigenous/First Nations media for public communication
  • Indigenous/First Nations organizational communication with publics/stakeholders
  • The use of social media by Indigenous/First Nations for public communication
  • The presentation of images, news and/or other information by Indigenous/First Nations
  • Media representation of Indigenous/First Nations in public communication

We welcome original research, case studies, theoretical, conceptual and methodological papers relating to the topic. We encourage contributions from Indigenous/First Nations scholars.
