Call for Paper Proposals on Social Networks and Climate Change

Send your paper proposals by January 21, 2019

News from Nov 23, 2018

Anthropogenic global warming, and consequent climate change, are amongst the biggest challenges facing humankind.

The effects of individuals, societies and policies – key drivers of climate change – and the social dimensions of climate change have been subject to research for a significant period.

However, it is only recently that a growing number of scholars have started to analyze the role social networks play in anthropogenic climate change. These works contribute crucial insights by looking beyond actor attributes and placing a focus on the relations amongst actors, and shedding a light on network dynamics.

The journal Social Networks published by David Tindall, Department of Sociology, University of British Columbia,Nina Kolleck, Freie Universität Berlin and John McLevey, Department of Knowledge Integration at the University of Waterloo is looking for papers to publish in a Special Issue.

The scope for potential papers is quite broad, and could include but is not restricted to topics involving climate change and networks with regard to any of the following: discourse networks, policy networks, political polarization, social movements, network analyses of social media, analyses of networks, attitudes, values, and opinions, networks and community resilience, carbon emissions and the world system. Diverse network methodologies are welcomed.

A voluntary one-page abstract describing your proposed paper is due on January 21st, 2019.

Feedback will be provided within six weeks of the deadline. This proposal is voluntary in the sense that one can still submit a paper for consideration for the special issue without first submitting a proposal. But the submission of proposals in advance of a final paper is strongly encouraged.

Please send your one-page abstract to: socialnetworksandclimatechange@gmail.com

The deadline for the completed papers will be January 21st, 2020.

The completed paper will need to be submitted on the journal website. Details about this will be given at a later date.
