The Electronic Center for Contemporary Cultural Studies (ECCCS) is happy to announce a call for papers for their first issue of 2009. Founded in August, 2008, The ECCCS is an electronic forum for young scholars exploring contemporary culture. The ECCCS encourages submissions that explore, integrate and challenge issues in contemporary culture in the following areas: Education, New/Social Media, Music, Television/Film and Society/Culture. With the intention of providing space for a range of voices and styles, the ECCCS seeks submissions from young scholars, young professionals with academic or practical experience in the topic they hope to explore, and academics at the beginning of their careers. The ECCCS welcomes submissions in the following formats:
- Critical (Academic) Papers
- Essays (Commentary)
We strongly encourage, indeed expect, some or all submissions to fall outside of or overlap our general categories. All submissions must, however, directly address relevant questions in the larger field of contemporary culture. Additionally, we ask that:
- Critical papers not exceed 9000 words and follow MLA style guidelines.
- Essays are between 1,000 and 3,000 words long.
- Bloggers provide sample material from an ongoing or recently active blog.
For more detailed information on submission guidelines, please see http://www.the-ecccs.org/submissions/.
Deadline for the January 2009 issue is January 5, 2009. Please see the ECCCS’s website, www.the-ecccs.org for mission statement, updates and general information. Please direct all submissions or questions to the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
