I will be co-editing a book, tentatively entitled From Branding to Diplomacy: Cities in the International Arena, with Sohaela Amiri of Pardee RAND Graduate School on the internationalization of cities.
One of the areas I wanted to expand on as part of my research on cities and communication has been how cities – our homes – have been spending time and resources to be active in the ‘outside’ world. Let that be through city diplomacy or city diplomacy, our hometowns now have new identities. We are looking for chapters that investigates these new identities, the new roles and functions undertaking by cities, and the ways to study them.
Below, you can find a more formal call (or download the call in PDF format here).
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Deadline for abstract submission is November 1st.
