Cultural Analysis - Folklore and Popular Culture - Submissions Needed
Cultural Analysis: An Interdisciplinary Forum on Folklore and Popular Culture invites submissions for the first volume of an interdisciplinary, international, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to expressive and everyday culture.
We encourage submissions from a variety of theoretical standpoints and from different disciplines, including (but not limited to) anthropology, archaeology, architecture, art history, cultural studies, folklore, geography, history, media studies, popular culture, psychology, rhetoric, sociology, and women's studies. We are seeking submissions for the following sections: research articles, reviews of works (books, films, exhibitions, websites, etc.), and annotated bibliographies.
The journal also features published responses to each research article, written by scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds. This is one of the ways in which we hope to contribute to interdisciplinary dialogue on folklore and popular culture. We ask anyone willing to submit such responses to get in touch.
The journal will be made available via the internet and will offer worldwide distribution at no cost to readers. At the same time, the journal has all the conventional advantages of hard-copy journals, since it will be produced in both .html and .pdf format, ensuring that the journal can easily be cited and printed in fixed-page format.
Authors should submit research articles of approximately 20-30 pages in length in accordance with The Chicago Manual of Style and include an abstract of 100 words and a Works Cited section (not a bibliography). Submissions should be in hard copy: if accepted, an electronic version will be requested as well. Please bear in mind that Cultural Analysis is interdisciplinary, so discipline-specific terms should be used sparingly and explained either parenthetically or in footnotes. In the future, we hope to publish in multiple languages; for the first volume, however, we are only accepting submissions in English.
