Call for Papers: Interpersonal Communication and Social Interaction

Special Issue of Empedocles, guest edited by Pekka Isotalus
(University of Tampere) and Owen Hargie (University of Ulster).

There is growing need for a European publication platform for
interpersonal communication and social interaction research and
theory development. In order to give the European communication
research community an opportunity to assess the scope of such a
platform, Empedocles: European Journal for the Philosophy of
Communication
will publish a special guest-edited issue on
interpersonal communication and social interaction, which could also
be the starting point for a new journal dedicated to this area of
research: European Journal of Human Communication.

As guest editors for a special edition of Empedocles to be published
in December 2011, we welcome proposals for articles that explore
contacts and bonds between people, whether in private or public
contexts, whether maintained face-to-face or mediated via
communication technologies. The articles can focus on interpersonal
relationships; group and team communication; conversational
organisation; verbal and nonverbal communication; language and
social interaction; intercultural dimensions; public speaking; radio
and television performance; rhetoric; argumentation; persuasion and
mutual influence; communicative competence and interpersonal skills;
ethnography of speaking; and, other related approaches to human
social interaction.

We encourage qualitative approaches to research, while also
encompassing quantitative inquiry. For this special issue,
theoretical, evaluative or interpretative studies are especially welcome.

The journal publishes double-blind peer reviewed articles
(6,000-8,000 words). Submissions should be sent by email before June
15, 2011, to guest editors Pekka Isotalus (pekka.isotalus@uta.fi)
and Owen Hargie (ODW.Hargie@ulster.ac.uk).
Empedocles uses the MHRA referencing system. Please download the
notes for contributors for further information.
