*Call for Papers*

*Special Issue on “Social Media and Human Rights”*

Margaret Waltz, Guest Editor

The editors of *Societies Without Borders: Human Rights and the Social
Sciences* (SWB) - a double-blind, peer-reviewed, open-source electronic
journal devoted to cutting-edge research on human rights and public goods -
invite authors to submit manuscripts for a special issue on “Social Media
and Human Rights.”

With this special issue we invite submissions that examine both major and
emerging issues in “Social Media and Human Rights.”  This topic will also
allow *Societies Without Borders* to utilize its strengths as a space for
research from within the academy or by practitioners in the field.

The special issue seeks papers, commentaries, notes from the field, as well
as poetic, visual, and other expressions devoted to examining social media
and human rights.  This special issue will be released in *April 2016.*

Any and all inquiries into social media and human rights in the social
sciences are welcome.  Some questions for consideration include but are not
limited to:

·       Social media and social change

·       Access to social media

·       Social media and gender, race, ethnicity, poverty/SES, sexual
orientation, and/or nationality

·       Social media and surveillance

·       Social media and human rights monitoring

·       Privacy and digital rights

·       Social media and human rights activism

·       Human rights social media campaigns

The deadline for submission is *December 1, 2015*.

Inquiries may be sent to Margaret Waltz at margaret.waltz at case.edu.

Please submit manuscripts through the SWB Website
follow the SWB Submission Guidelines

Submissions will be subject to the regular review process of SWB.
