This edited volume of the postgraduate Journal “Networking Knowledge” of UK’s Media and Cultural Studies Association invites scholars from a broad range of disciplines to submit manuscripts on the theme of “Temporalities in Non-Western and Western communication and media studies”.
The topic had its peak with every rise of a new medium, with the work of Innis and McLuhan in the 70s in the rise of television at the forefront. With the emergence of the internet as an ubiquitous phenomenon, the topic of temporalities rises to new levels and emergent phenomena with scholar such as Sharma, Wajcman, Qiu and others at the forefront. This call for submissions therefore hopes to contribute towards this emerging discourse on social time and the digital. Moreover, alack of temporalities communication and media research in the Global South is attributed to the prevalent Western tradition in communication research. This special section also serves to overcome the dominance of Western approaches in temporalities studies. Following these considerations, scholars are invited to submit their original manuscripts that address the following topics, among others:
