Cultural Values: Journal for Cultural Research
New to Taylor & Francis in 2002
We would like to invite you to contribute to Cultural Values: Journal for Cultural Research is an international journal, based in Lancaster University's Institute for Cultural Research. The journal publishes essays that address the broad conjuncture between culture and the many domains and practices in relation to which culture has usually been defined: including, for example, media, politics, technology, economics, society, art and the sacred. 'Culture' denotes a shifting multiplicity of signifying practices and value systems that provide a potentially infinite resource of mobilisation, investigation and critique as well as ethnographic or market research into cultural identity, cultural autonomy, cultural emancipation, cultural difference and all the cultural aspects of power. Domains of social practice such as economics, education and politics, for example, are not distinguished by being clearly differentiated from the cultural. They enjoy a synergistic and symbiotic relation with it through their common preoccupation with the complex and dynamic forces of cultural production, reproduction and resistance locally and globally. Here, especially, the cultural becomes indistinguishable from questions concerning the governable. The desire not to be governed, or to be governed differently, thus becomes impelled to think culture differently from the accepted accounts of cultural identity, cultural recognition and cultural resistance that once fuelled cultural critique of governing practices. In this confluence of the cultural and the governable the very parameters and character of the cultural in relation to allied domains of social practice becomes re-problematised once more.
The journal publishes original essays by established and emerging writers globally who are developing the future of cultural theory and research in the 21st century. We encourage writing that explores every aspect of cultural experience, experiences that occur in the correlation between fields of knowledge, types of normativity, and forms of subjectivity in different domains and locations around the world.
