Call for Abstracts and Papers
AEJMC Pre-conference Symposium
Sponsored by the Center on Public Diplomacy at the University of Southern California
Nation Branding and Public Diplomacy: The Model of Country Concept
AEJMC 2015 – Annual Conference • San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel – August 5, 2015
Researchers and professionals from a variety of disciplines have pursued the concepts of nation branding and public diplomacy, not surprisingly using existing discipline-specific theories, models and terminology to frame their work. A core group of communication scholars, for instance, has developed around the study of public diplomacy as public relations. Scholars from marketing continue to explore ways in which a country’s image can be managed like a brand. While many have written about the overlaps and intersections of nation branding and public diplomacy, few have attempted to view the two fields, and the many related areas, holistically. 500 word abstracts to be submitted by April 15, 2015/ Full papers due July 15, 2015. See Complete Call.

Mass Communication & Society Announces Call for Papers
“Climate and Sustainability Communication”
Guest Editor: Donnalyn Pompper, Temple University
This Mass Communication & Society special issue shall open new conversations for integrating arenas of science and environmental communication, political communication, health communication and their respective theory and research method sets. Links between communication and sustainability have garnered significantly greater attention among scholars in Europe and Scandinavia than in North America. Reasons for this and implications of such outcomes have yet to be thoroughly examined. Collectively, business-case approaches far outnumber critical approaches among U.S.-based research on sustainability. Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2015. See Complete Call.
