SPECIAL ISSUE ON WORK
IOWA JOURNAL OF CULTURAL STUDIES
Call for Papers Deadline:
The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies seeks essays from the humanities and social sciences on representations, cultures, and histories of labor and work.

We look to offer an issue with articles on a range of labor practices, including industrial, immaterial, cultural, affective, unpaid, etc.
This special issue will also include a forum on writing practices in the University.
This call is not limited to interests of any century or geographic location.
Cultural representations of labor
Artists whose own work is reflective on questions of labor
Cultures of labor and the workplace
Discourses of labor in media
