Articles are sought for publication in the April 2005 edition of Pacific Journalism Review. This themed edition will explore and/or critique the concept of the 'public sphere' in relation to notions of identity, place, community, indigeneity and journalism practices in the Asia-Pacific region. The editors are interested in papers that explore, conjointly from an empirical and theoretical perspective, themes such as:

The usefulness and limitations of the concept of the public sphere, with its roots in Western bourgeois culture, for the Asia-Pacific region.

Alternative conceptions of the public sphere, e.g. the proletarian public sphere, feminist public sphere, the indigenous public sphere and their applicability to Pacific conditions.

The role of new technologies in the formation of national and transnational/diasporic identities.

Technology, globalisation and cultural representation in the (new) media.

The dialogic potential of existing and new media.

The construction of identities and culture, as related to the formation of alternative public spheres for ethnic minorities, including migratory ethnicities.

Identity, place and hybridity in cultural practices.

The political and economic constraints on the formation and functioning of an indigenous public sphere.

Representing history, knowledge and indigenous cultures in mainstream and alternative public spheres.

Indigenity and multiculturalism in journalism practice.

Cultural rights and media discourse.
Articles on other topics related to media and journalism theory and practice may also be considered. The journal has four main sections: research articles, commentaries, forum and reviews.
