Call for Abstracts for Chapters

Volume 2 of the International Handbook of Internet Research

(editors Jeremy Hunsinger, Lisbeth Klastrup, and Matthew Allen)

Abstracts due July 17; full chapters due Sept. 1 2017

After the remarkable success of the first International Handbook of
Internet Research (2010), Springer has contracted with its editors to
produce a second volume. This new volume will be arranged in two
sections, that address one of two different aspects of internet
research: foundations, and futures. Each of these meta-themes will
have its own section of the new handbook.

Foundations will approach a method, a theory, a perspective, a topic
or field that has been and is still a location of significant internet
research. These chapters will engage with the current and historical
scholarly literature through extended reviews and also as a way of
developing insights into the internet and internet research. Futures
will engage with the directions the field of internet research might
take over the next five years. These chapters will engage current
methods, topics, perspectives, or fields that will expand and
re-invent the field of internet research, particularly in light of
emerging social and technological trends. The material for these
chapters will define the topic they describe within the framework of
internet research so that it can be understand as a place of future

We value the way in which this call for papers will itself shape the
contents, themes, and coverage of the Handbook. We encourage potential
authors to present abstracts that will consolidate current internet
research, critically analyse its directions past and future, and
re-invent the field for the decade to come. Contributions about the
internet and internet research are sought from scholars in any
discipline, and from many points of view. We therefore invite internet
researchers working within the fields of communication, culture,
politics, sociology, law and privacy, aesthetics, games and play,
surveillance and mobility, amongst others, to consider contributing to
the volume.

Initially, we ask scholars and researchers to submit an 500 word
abstract detailing their own chapter for one of the two sections
outlined above. The abstract must follow the format presented below.
After the initial round of submissions, there may be a further call
for papers and/or approaches to individuals to complete the volume.
The final chapters will be chosen from the submitted abstracts by the
editors or invited by the editors. The chapter writers will be
notified of acceptance within 2 weeks. The chapters will be due
September 2017, should be between 6,000 and 10,000 words (inclusive of
references, biographical statement and all other text).

Each abstract needs to be presented in the following form:

· Section (Either Foundations or Futures)

· Title of chapter

· Author name/s, institutional details

· Corresponding author’s email address

· Keywords (no more than 5)

· Abstract (no more than 500 words)

· References

Please e-mail your abstract/s to: internet.research.handbook at gmail.com

We look forward to your submissions and working with you to produce
another definitive collection of thought-provoking internet research.
Please feel free to distribute this CfP widely.

Thank you

Jeremy, Lisbeth, and Matt
