Communicating diversity: call for papers

Filed under: News, ethical space editors blog, Headlines — icetemp @ 8:02 pm

Every word matters: Communicating diversity is the title of the annual conference of the Institute of Communication Ethics on 16 November 2007 at Leeds Trinity and All Saints College, Brownberrie Lane, Horsforth, Leeds LS18 5HD. This one-day, international conference, organised by the leading communication ethics institute in the UK, is an opportunity for practitioners and academics to come together and discuss the crucial issues that surround the communication of diversity in all its forms. Thus discussions may focus on: representations of ethnic diversity, class and gender in the media both in Britain and abroad; the Internet and campaigns for people with disabilities; promoting awareness of diversity issues in higher education; language, ideology and myth in the constructions of diversity. The conference will be in a cafe format enabling relaxed, creative dialogue between all delegates. Papers will be short (around 10 minutes each) with the emphasis placed on the ensuing discussion. Position papers, articles or statements are welcome and will be published as part of the conference papers and may also be carried in Ethical Space: The International Journal of Communication Ethics. They should be between 1,000 and 2,500 words and sent to Fiona Thompson, chair of the Institute of Communication Ethics, (f.thompson@leedstrinity.ac.uk) or Richard Keeble (rkeeble@lincoln.ac.uk), ICE director and joint editor of Ethical Space.
