Call for Chapters: Global Perspectives on Social Media Communications, Trade Unionism and Transnational Advocacy
Edited by Floribert Patrick C. Endong
University of Calabar
Proposal Submission Deadline: June 29, 2019
The advent of the Internet and the social media has revolutionized almost all human industries. This advent has particularly changed the game of activism enabling even the less privileged in society (particularly those having access to digital technologies) to easily make their voice known and to be civically engaged whenever need arises. Thus, even the less privileged in society have, through their involvement is activities such as digital activism, harktivism, leaktivism, e-petitions and hashtag activism, succeeded in influencing the affairs of their countries and initiating change in their immediate environment. However, in spite of their great potential, the social media (communications) still seem to be understudied. An issues which is particularly understudied is the role of social media in the two domains of trade unionism and transnational advocacy. In effect, even though trade union scholars and unionists have in several platforms recognized the benefits of communicating online; and although such unionists and scholars have recognized the ability of the social media to change the conditions of unionism, (new) knowledge about the role of digital technologies in the process of trade unionism is still very limited. Similar gaps in knowledge are observed in the field of transnational advocacy. In effect, although many studies have sought to explore the effectiveness of digital campaigns in bringing about tangible political change in specific countries, it is still difficult to know the extent to which government action can neutralize, “dilute” or hampered online activism. It is equally still difficult to fully determine the role digital activism can play in the democratization process. Additionally, the phenomenon of digital activism has been subject to controversy in the sense that online activism’s ability to bring about real socio-political change in countries of the world has continued to divide critics. In view of this, it could be argued that we need additional research to fully apprehend the potential of social media communications and digital activism.
The overall objective of this book project is to generate a new edition of the volume titled “Exploring the Role of Social Media in Transnational Advocacy” (published in 2018 by IGI Global). The project specifically aims to (1) examine the role of social media in trade unionism, (2) examine the neo and postmodern facets of digital activism and theorize/speculate on their future and (3) x-ray the contribution of digital activism to the trans-nationalization or globalization of major economic and socio-political movements. The book also aims to explore the potential of digital activism to effectively engender social and political change in the world.
The target audience of this book will consist of students, scholars, media practitioners, policy makers, international relation experts, politicians and other professionals in social media research.

Submission Window: August 1–September 15, 2019
We aim to expand organizational theorists’ methodological repertoire with experiments, whether in the laboratory or the field, alone or in combination with other methods. Among their many benefits, experiments excel in identifying causality. They’ve been advocated since the inception of the field, and even more so in recent years. This Special Issue answers this call.

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change, a peer-reviewed volume published by Emerald Group Publishing, is inviting submissions for Volume 41 of the series. This RSMCC volume has a special focus on non-state actors and political conflicts but it will also attend to the broader themes of the series. Volume editor Julie Mazzei (Kent State University) welcomes submissions that fall within one of two areas: (1) research focused on the roles and motivations of non-state actors in conflicts or post-conflict situations in the post-Cold War era; or (2) research generally relevant to understanding the dynamics of social movements, conflicts, or change. We are particularly interested in research focusing on the motivations and interests of non-state violent actors (NSVAs) in the post-Cold War era; the role of identity and/or ideology in the conflicts or resolutions of so-called “new wars;” the impact of NSVAs in conflict and/or peace-making; and the ways in which IGOs and NGOs interact with NSVAs in conflicts or post-conflict zones. RSMCC boasts quick turn-around times, generally communicating peer review-informed decisions within 10-12 weeks. For more information, please visit the RSMCC website:http://www.emeraldinsight.com/products/books/series.htm?id=0163-786X
The official journal of ASA’s Section for Racial and Ethnic Minorities, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will publish the highest quality, cutting-edge sociological research on race and ethnicity regardless of epistemological, methodological, or theoretical orientation. While the study of race and ethnicity has derived from a broad and deep tradition of interdisciplinarity, sociology indeed has often been at the forefront of scholarly understanding of the dynamics of race and ethnicity; yet, there exists no journal in sociology devoted to bringing together this important theoretical, empirical, and critical work. Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will provide a fulcrum upon which sociologically-centered work will swing as it also seeks to provide new linkages between the discipline of sociology and other disciplines and areas where race and ethnicity are central components.
