SSCA Ethics & Philosophy of Communication Group Approved

Filed under: Announcements by: Pat Gehrke

Just a few weeks ago the Southern States Communication Association officially approved the establishment of a new interest group in Ethics & Philosophy of Communication.  Tom Socha notified me today that we received unanimous support from the executive board at their meeting during the NCA convention in San Francisco.

We owe our first steps toward success to the diligent and persistent work of James Pickett at Flagler College on the bylaws, petitions, and essentially all the details that are required for official status. This interest group originated out of his energies, from the very beginning.

We still have to wait for official word on our panel and business meeting in the SSCA schedule for Little Rock, but once the details are announced I will pass them along.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: Deadline extended to Dec. 31, 2010. 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

We seek 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. 31, 2010, and chapters due June 30, 2011. To learn complete details and requirements, please read through the project website very carefully at http://fuseprojects.weebly.com/mediaethics.html.
