Call for papers
Special issue of *Social Semiotics*:

Mediated Citizenship(s)

The concept of citizenship is under attack and revision from all sides.
Scholars, politicians and pundits alike decry the decline of participation in
conventional politics. Some view mass media as the culprits of growing
disenchantment among citizens. At the same time, recent years have also seen the
rise of new social movements and forms of activism, which involve new
generations of citizens. Global flows of capital, people, and media content
present new challenges to citizenship.
