In celebration of his trailblazing work, several conferences are being held around the world on how McLuhan’s writings have informed and influenced media studies. The *American Communication Journal (ACJ) *welcomes original submissions for a special issue on Marshall McLuhan’s legacy and thought that deal with this general question: How has McLuhan’s legacy influenced media studies, particularly our understanding of the impact of new media on society?

*ACJ* Editors seek manuscripts that tackle this question from diverse methodologies and perspectives. While we are especially interested in papers that have been presented in recent conferences about McLuhan, all submissions will be peer-reviewed. For any inquiries about potential submissions, please contact Prof. Aziz Douai (azizdouai@gmail.com). Deadline for Submission is November 30th, 2011. Please send your submissions to Anita McDaniel [mcdaniela@uncw.edu] and Aziz Douai [azizdouai@gmail.com] with the subject line [*ACJ* Special Issue: McLuhan].

About *ACJ*: ACJ is the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Communication Association. Although *ACJ* publishes traditional research regularly, *ACJ* actively seeks articles, essays and reports that make use of hypertext, audio, video and PowerPointfeatures characteristic of the media rich environment of the Internet. *ACJ* has been published online since 1999 [ac-journal.org].
