OPPORTUNITIES: CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS:
Contemporary Media Ethics: A Practical Guide for Students, Scholars and Professionals in the Globalized World (2nd ed.), edited by Mitchell Land, Koji Fuse and Bill W. Hornaday is seeking chapter proposals (the maximum of 1,000 words with endnotes) for the second edition of Contemporary Media Ethics, which will be published by Marquette Books. This is a major revision. All chapters solicited are case analyses that compare utilitarian and non-utilitarian approaches to decision making in mass media practices. The non-utilitarian approach can be either non-Western or non-dominant Western. In particular, cross-cultural proposals that attempt to apply a non-Western philosophical foundation (e.g., the palaver, Confucianism, Daoism, Islam) to a U.S. domestic case are welcome.
Proposals are due Dec. 1, 2010, and chapters due June 30, 2011.
