*CFP* "CORONAVIRUS IN THE MEDIA: EARLY RESPONSES TO COVID-19 IN GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE", CHAPTER BOOK
Chapter proposals are invited for an edited book examining portrayals of the coronavirus in diverse print, broadcast, and online media, including but not limited to newspapers, magazines, social media, television, podcasts, and popular culture.
The book will be published in December 2020. Interested authors should send a 300-word abstract, 200-word biography, and sample of a previously published chapter or article to Douglas Vakoch, PhD, at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 3, 2020. Authors whose proposals have been accepted will be notified by April 6, 2020, and full chapters are due by June 1, 2020. The book targets an academic and professional audience, and all chapters should include scholarly references. Preference will be given to authors who have completed their doctorates. Only previously unpublished works will be considered. This book will appear in the series Environment and Society, which includes such works as Environment, Social Justice, and the Media in the Age of the Anthropocene.
Though the book will focus on media portrayals of the coronavirus, proposals for introductory chapters that provide broader scientific and cultural context for understanding the coronavirus and COVID-19 are also invited. In addition to chapters written from the perspective of such disciplines as communication, media studies, and popular culture, contributions from other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences are also encouraged.
