    Michele Wright Ph.D. and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Masaryk University Czech Republic would like to invite you to submit a chapter to an upcoming book on this topic, published by IGI Global. This edited book is called: 

    Identity, Sexuality, and Relationships among Emerging Adults in the Digital Age

    The book will provide a new framework for understanding emerging adults and how they navigate developmental tasks and issues utilizing digital technologies. The book will synthesize the research on emerging adults’ digital technology usage and how these technologies hinder or help their identity development and formation, contribute to aggressive and prosocial behaviors, understand their sexuality, and benefits or harms their relationships with their parents, friends, and romantic partners. In places where the published research on a topic is missing, research from the face-to-face context can be used to provide a starting point for understanding the same topics as related to digital technologies. Gaps in the literature will be identified and future research will be proposed on these topics. Topics might include relationship with parents, friendships, love, romantic relationships, sexting, aggression, prosocial behavior, technology addiction, identity development and formation, and the self.

    The deadline for the chapter proposal is September 30, 2015 and for the completed chapter is January 15, 2016. Decisions on abstracts will be sent to authors by October 15, 2015. Please submit the abstract to: http://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/1901.


    The book is expected to be finalized by August 1, 2016. If you have any questions about potential chapter ideas, please feel free to email the editor at michelle.wright@mail.muni.cz.
