CFP Media Peripheries – Launch Issue

Media Peripheries is a new journal of media and communication studies based in Aotearoa New Zealand. Continuing on the legacy of MEDIANZMedia Peripheries aims to be a forum of academic debates that are regional in focus and global in scope. For its inaugural issue, Media Peripheries invites contributions that explore some of the issues and themes that are at the core of the journal’s mission. The journal is particularly interested in research that focuses on the peripheries of the global media system both in geographical and cultural terms. The journal conceives the broad notion of periphery as referring to both the specific location of Aotearoa as situated at the margins of the Global North as well as topics and voices that are under researched within media and communication studies. 

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Please include an abstract of the contribution as well as name, institutional affiliation, full contact details, and a short biographical note. Full articles or video essays will be due by 15 September 2022 and should be maximum 8000 words in length.

Please direct any enquiries or questions about the special issue to [log in to unmask] or visit our website
