BNU's Dr. Wajiha Raza Rizvi Contributes Expertise to The Howard Journal of Communications

Dr. Wajiha Raza Rizvi, Head of MS Film & TV and Associate Professor at the Theatre, Film & TV (TFT) Department of the School of Media & Mass Communication (SMC) at BNU, continues to make significant contributions to the academic realm as she successfully completed the review of a research paper for The Howard Journal of Communications, published by Taylor and Francis.

The Howard Journal of Communications, renowned for its quarterly publication and impressive impact factors (1.0 and 1.3 for the five-year period), focuses on original and current research papers exploring the intricate dynamics between ethnicity, culture, and communication. The journal actively promotes research aimed at combating racism, showcasing a commitment to amplifying the voices of authors from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds.

Dr. Rizvi's involvement in the peer review process aligns with the journal's mission to serve as a forum for researchers, policy-makers, and decision-makers dedicated to using research as a catalyst for social awareness and change. The journal, known for providing a platform for marginalized voices and ideas, encourages contributions that make important strides in areas such as gender, ethnic representations in the media, interracial issues, cultural resistance, and more. Rigorous anonymized reviews by top scholars in the field ensure the quality and integrity of the published content.

This marks another noteworthy addition to Dr. Rizvi's extensive portfolio of academic contributions. She previously reviewed a paper for the East Asian Journal of Popular Culture (EAJPC), affiliated with the East Asian Popular Culture Association and indexed on Web of Science/Clarivate.

Dr. Wajiha Raza Rizvi's commitment to advancing scholarly discourse, combined with her dedication to diverse perspectives, exemplifies Beaconhouse National University's ethos of academic excellence and global engagement. Having reviewed papers for ten different national and international research journals since joining BNU, Dr. Rizvi continues to play a vital role in shaping and advancing academic conversations.
