Dear OURMedia members,

Essays are now invited for PLATFORM: Journal of Media and Communication.

We would like to invite (post)graduate students and early career
researchers to think and write about the constitutive role communication
plays in the cultural, technological and political aspects of our lives.
Independent in theme, essays should provoke discussion about contemporary
issues in communications and media as they are being experienced around
the world.

In addition to PLATFORM’s theme-based peer-reviewed articles, the essays
aim to help us better understand issues associated with the rising
significance of multiple media and communication platforms for societies
and individuals across various globalised and localised environments.

The following guidelines apply to all submissions.
Deadline: 15 November 2009.
Essay Length: 2000-6000 words including notes and references

For enquiries concerning essay submissions feel free to contact
Sandy Joy Watson ([log in to unmask])
Sebastian Kubitschko ([log in to unmask])

For any further information on PLATFORM go to
www.culture-communication.unimelb.edu.au/platform/ or follow PLATFORM
updates on Twitter.

PLATFORM is a new international peer-review graduate journal,
available online through open-access.
PLATFORM is refereed by an international board of established and
emerging scholars working across diverse paradigms in Media and
Communication. It is edited by graduate students at the University of
Melbourne, and published by the School of Culture and Communication,
University of Melbourne.

The aims of PLATFORM include:
* To provide a platform for media and communications graduate student
researchers to showcase, share, and support the work of one another
through publication, peer-review, and comments;
* To provide a platform for emerging media and communications scholars
to build a publication record and to contribute subsequently to other
academic publications;
* To increase scholarly appreciation of media and communications
research across diverse theoretical, methodological, and empirical
interests; and
* To encourage international awareness and collaboration through the
discussion of issues associated with the rising significance of
multiple media and communications platforms for societies and
individuals in and across various globalised and localised environments.
