CALL FOR PAPERS:
China and Cyberspace:
From e-Community to e-Democracy?

Special Issue of Chinese Journal of Communication (CJC)

Guest Editors
Lin FENG (Lecturer in Chinese Studies, University of Hull)
Xiudian DAI (Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Studies, University of Hull)

The general aims and focus of the Special Issue
During the past two decades, the development of digital media and expansion of Internet access has witnessed a fast growing population of netizens around the world. In particular the development of web 2.0 technology has fuelled the rise of the social media, which has further contributed to the expansion of digital space. Today, China has the world’s largest population of digital media users, while at the same time the country is believed to be one of the regimes that has the tightest censorship control in place. This Special Issue seeks to investigate the culture and politics of China’s emerging e-Society with a particular focus on the role played by the growing digital networks in (re)shaping the systems and processes of Chinese governance in the Internet age.

The edited volume aims to explore new methodologies and theoretical frameworks towards analysing the transformation of China’s multiple media platforms in which e-Community, e-Governance and e-Democracy are constructed and contested since the country’s connection to the Internet two decades ago.

More specifically, we invite contributions concerned with the following key themes:
a) e-Community:
• The practices and implications of online information sharing, dissemination and dissent;
• The emerging e-Society from the traditional society through such lenses as online communities, digital distribution and file sharing of cultural products, and online protest;

b) e-Governance:
• The impact of digital communications, especially the Internet, upon existing hierarchies and systems of governance;
• Digital convergence and its impact on regulation of the information and communications technology (ICT) sector in China;
• Theoretical and empirical investigation of the legitimacy and effectiveness of any form of digital governance that China might institute and practice;

c) e-Democracy:
• The role of the Internet as a tool and opportunity for making Chinese politics more democratic before a fully democratic system is achieved;
• The response of China’s political establishment to the digital revolution, both institutionally and politically;
• Digital empowerment of individual Chinese citizens and local communities

We welcome contributions based on theoretical and empirical research to address a specific field of development manifesting the mutual impact between China as a sovereign state and cyberspace as an environment of electronic communication that reshapes and reconstructs individual, community and even national identities. We seek papers that promote cross-disciplinary dialogue and critical debate in media and communication studies, cultural studies, politics and international studies, and Chinese studies.
All manuscripts must be submitted by December 30, 2015. All accepted manuscript will be published online first and the planned printed publication date is an issue of CJC in 2017.

Submissions should conform to the editorial guidelines of the Chinese Journal of Communication found at http://www.informaworld.com/cjoc under “Instructions for Authors”.

Papers for consideration in this special issue should be submitted online  and should indicate they are intended for inclusion in the special issue.

Deadline: 30 December 2015
