Special Issue Call for Papers

Communication for Social Change

Call for Papers

Guest editors: Jan Servaes and Karin Wilkins
Submission deadline: February 1, 2014

Advocacy and communication for social change have been interpreted and applied in different ways across contexts and over time. Communication theory, connected with research, policy and practice, offers divergent perspectives. Critical assessments of these divergent theories will help build a more comprehensive understanding of communication for social change. In order to integrate more global and critical perspectives, we invite critical reflections on the ways in which communication theory serves and limits social change, in terms of development practice, policy, and discourse.

Communication Theory therefore invites authors to submit papers for a future special issue on “Communication for Social Change.” Contributions could analyze current theoretical developments in advocacy and communication for and about social change, revisit epistemological and historical foundations, examine the integration of theory and practice, or critically assess special approaches such as advocacy communication, behavioral change communication, participatory communication or communication for sustainable social change.  Keep Reading!
