    The Communication Association of Eurasian Researchers (CAER) welcomes submissions that focus on various aspects of communication in, with, and about Eastern Europe, Russia, CIS and Former Soviet Republics.
     

    While any work will be considered, work that engages the official theme for the NCA 106th Annual Convention, "Communication on the Crossroads,” in the context of our regional focus upon Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia and/or reflecting on communication and its historical challenges in these regions will receive special consideration. Please read more about this year’s theme at the NCA Convention website: www.natcom.org/convention.
     

    We welcome any methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives that may advance our understanding of communication discipline, including papers about communicative or rhetorical behavior, social interaction, theoretical contributions, any form of mediated or face-to-face form of communication or interaction between people from the above-listed countries and cultures. However, submissions should not be limited to these areas as long as they are related to the above-mentioned regions in some way. In addition to the traditional types of submissions, we encourage innovative methods that may not use traditional presentational formats or require the literal presence of such participants. We also encourage paper sessions and panel discussion submissions that include presenters from multiple institutions and/or multiple countries.
     

    We accept submissions in three formats: individual papers, paper sessions and panel discussion proposals. All submissions must be written in English and must be submitted via NCA Convention Central. Emailed or mailed submissions will not be accepted.
     

    Individual Paper: An individual paper is a fully-developed, complete paper. Extended abstracts should contain sufficient information for review; although abstracts will be considered, priority will be given to full papers. You should not submit a paper that has been published or accepted for publication at the time of submission. Selected paper submissions may be sent to the Scholar to Scholar sessions, which provide a format especially appropriate for visual and aural work, multimedia projects, and interactive presentations. If you wish your paper to be considered for the Scholar to Scholar sessions, please check the appropriate agreement box during the submission process. Authors will enter their submission information to include title, author(s), paper description (for the convention program), and uploaded abstract or completed paper file.  Please note that you must remove ALL identifying information from your uploaded paper file prior to submission. Uploaded files should not exceed 25 pages of primary text, excluding abstract, title page and works cited page(s).
     

    Paper Session: A paper session is submitted as a pre-conceived and complete session of papers centered around a common subject, theme, concept, or idea. All paper session proposals must include an overall description of the session, a paper session rationale, the title of each proposed paper, author(s) name and contact information, and an abstract for each paper. A session chair is required.
      Panel Discussion: A panel discussion is submitted as a pre-conceived and complete session of presenters discussing a topic/issue. All panel discussion submissions must include the entry of each presenter involved, title, and session description for the online program. A session chair is required. Please provide a rationale for acceptance outlining the importance of the submission.
     

    We will recognize the top student paper submission. We will also recognize the best overall paper.
     

    If you are not a member of NCA, you will be able to create a user name and password for NCA Convention Central by using the "Create an Account" link on the main sign-in page of NCA Convention Central. The best student and faculty submissions will be recognized and top papers will be considered for publication in the RCA-sponsored Russian Journal of Communication.
     

    We expect a high number of papers and panel proposals. If you're willing to join our team of reviewers, please email planners matveevan@uhd.edu or marta.lukacovic@furman.edu and provide details about your area of expertise.

    Call for Papers “Nomadism, Mobilities and Media”

    Deadline: June 30, 2018

    On August 29-31, 2018 the “Nomadism, Mobilities and Media” conference will be held at AUCA. The conference is dedicated to the World Nomad Games III

    ‘Modern man might be so mobile that he can never establish roots and his experience of place may be all too superficial’ (Tuan, 1977, 183).

    Manuel Castells outlined a "network society" and suggested that the "space of places" is being surpassed by a "space of flows." (Castells, 1989)

    Mobilities is a contemporary paradigm in the social sciences that explores the movement of people (Human migration, travel, transport), ideas (see e.g. meme) and things (transport), as well as the broader social implications of those movements (Urry, 2000)

    Several typologies have been formulated to clarify the wide variety of mobilities. Most notably, John Urry divides mobilities into five types: mobility of objects, corporeal mobility, imaginative mobility, virtual mobility and communicative mobility. Later, Leopoldina Fortunati and Sakari Taipale proposed an alternative typology taking the individual and the human body as a point of reference. They differentiate between ‘macro-mobilities’ (consistent physical displacements), ‘micro-mobilities’ (small-scale displacements), ‘media mobility’ (mobility added to the traditionally fixed forms of media) and ‘disembodied mobility’ (the transformation in the social order).

    Mobility also incorporates how topologies of social networks relate to how complex patterns form and change. Contemporary information technologies and ways of life often create broad but weak social ties across time and space, with social life incorporating fewer chance meetings and more networked connections.

    Nomadism has the central importance in the genesis of the modern nation of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakstan and other Turkic and Persian nations.

    Nomadism is a way of life and human existence that is connected with permanent and more or less regular movements of people between different locations.

    “Nomadism, Mobilities and Media” conference invites papers which examine both the large-scale movements of people, objects, capital, and information across the world, as well as more local processes of daily transportation, movement through public and private spaces, and the travel of material things in everyday life, the diverse mobilities of peoples, objects, images, information and wastes; and of the complex interdependencies between, and social consequences of, these diverse mobilities.

    While mobilities is commonly associated with sociology, contributions to the “Nomadism, Mobilities and Media” conference are welcome from scholars in anthropology, cultural studies, economics, geography, migration studies, science and technology studies, and tourism and transport studies etc.

    “Nomadism, Mobilities and Media” conference welcomes abstracts, research in progress and research papers in the following subjects which have been explored in the mobilities paradigm:

    Mobile spatiality and temporality
    Sustainable and alternative mobilities
    Mobile rights and risks
    New social networks and mobile media
    Immobilities and social exclusions
    Tourism and travel mobilities
    Migration and diasporas
    Transportation and communication technologies
    Transitions in complex systems
    Nomadism
    Media mobilities
    Digital Nomad

    Please send your abstracts not more than 300 words to nomad@auca.kg no later than June 30, 2018.

    CAER is happy to announce the publication of member Alex Matveev's new book entitled Intercultural Competence in Organizations: A Guide for Leaders, Educators and Team Players by Springer. Matveev's book "addresses one of the most critical issues facing global business leaders and the multicultural workforce – how to work and relate effectively in the intercultural contexts. The author presents business professionals, practitioners and academics with the Collaborative Intercultural Competence Model. Based on solid theoretical assumptions and real intercultural experiences, this model is to help professionals work more effectively across and within cultures. This book expands the traditional presentation of existing knowledge by providing a unified discussion of intercultural communication and its conceptual foundations. The book offers readers with a contemporary insight into the intercultural competence phenomenon and highlights the basis for its experience-based inquiry, assessment and development" (Springer, 2017).

    Congratulations to Alex on his latest publication!
