The editors solicit submissions on the topic of "American Popular Culture as Import and Export" for vol. XXIV of The Americanist: Warsaw Journal for the Study of the United States (formerly American Studies, a peer reviewed journal published by the American Studies Center of Warsaw University).
While much has been written about the exporting of American popular culture around the world, America is also a voracious consumer of popular culture(s) from around the world. We seek submissions that explore how international popular culture has been imported to America and transformed by incorporation in its popular culture. Additionally, we will welcome essays that study how American popular culture exports have been transformed by incorporation into a particular national culture. We solicit case studies, articles examining general cultural trends, analyses of production and reception, as well as studies in cultural theory.
Texts should be between 4,000 and 6,000 words inclusive of notes and bibliography. They should be prepared according the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 5th Edition. Manuscripts of articles may be submitted as attachments to emails in either Word or WordPerfect files or may be sent in printed form to our address. Articles should be double-spaced, with standard margins and font and should include a cover page, with the title, author's name, institutional affiliation, email address, and postal address. The text of the essay should have its title only, without the author's name.
Deadline: 15 June 2007
