New Book Series: Post-Intercultural Communication and Education

Cambridge Scholars Press are publishing a new book series, edited by Prof. Fred Dervin (University of Helsinki), titled Post-Intercultural Communication and Education.

According to their announcement:

This book series, eclectic in scope, seeks to extend and revitalize scholarship on intercultural communication and education by publishing innovative, interdisciplinary and critical analyses of intercultural encounters. “Post-intercultural” refers to a recent paradigm shift in the way the ‘intercultural’ is conceptualized and researched, which lays more emphasis on the ‘inter-‘ and plural identities rather than on the ‘-cultural’ when dealing with questions of migration, glocalization, digitalization, and Otherness. The primary objectives of the series are to challenge e.g. differentialism, culturism and neocolonialism in research on the ‘intercultural’. The series encourages the exploration of new and creative research methods that move beyond methodological nationalism and imaginaries. The series publishes high-quality single-authored or edited volumes.

A non-exhaustive list of suggested topics includes:

  • Research methods and the ‘intercultural’
  • Identity and the ‘intercultural’
  • Language and the ‘intercultural’
  • Social justice and the ‘intercultural’
  • Intercultural competence
  • Immigration, mobility and expatriation
  • The ‘intercultural’ online
  • Business and the ‘intercultural’
  • Political discourses on the ‘intercultural’
  • The ‘intercultural’ in the media and art
  • Worldviews/religion and the ‘intercultural’
  • Gender and the ‘intercultural’

Interested researchers are encouraged to contact the series editor at fred.dervin[at]helsinki.fi, and submit an introduction or summary of the proposed book, a sample chapter, an estimate of the length of the book, a survey of competing titles with an argument for the marketability of the new work, and a market survey and a CV.
