Call for Chapters: Media Ethics, Edited Collection


Paul Booth, DePaul University

Amber Davisson, DePaul University

 Among readers as well as teachers and students, there is a strong interest
in understanding the complex ethical issues raised by seemingly omnipresent
media forces. We invite submissions for an edited collection that deals
broadly with current issues in contemporary media ethics. The book will
deal with ethical issues facing both media producers and consumers. We
welcome essays that discuss ethical issues facing media professionals in
both print and broadcast journalism, advertising, public relations, and
entertainment. These essays may deal with issues raised by emerging
technologies, convergence media, or more established mass media outlets.
Beyond the discussion of ethical issues facing media professionals, we are
also invite essays that address private media consumption and production
practices. We are interested in both classical and contemporary
philosophical approaches to media ethics

 Essays may explore, but are certainly not limited to, the following topics:

          Changing perspectives on media and privacy

         The evolution of intellectual property rights (copyright,
trademark, and patent law)

         Citizen Journalist


         Information Ethics

         Comedy News Shows

         Political Opinion/Commentary Shows



         Diversity and Representation in Film and Television

         Native Advertising

         Public Relations and Strategic Communication

Please submit proposals of 300-500 words with a brief biographical
statement and contact information via email attachment to Paul Booth and
Amber Davisson at [log in to unmask] no later than March 30th 2014. Notice
of acceptance will be sent out by May 2014 and completed essays accepted
for publication will be due in September 2014.
