Call for Papers
Volume 34: Popular Culture(s) (deadline for submissions: May 20th, 2013)
Popular culture has been defined as everything from “common culture,” to “folk culture,” to “mass culture.” While it has been all of these things at various points in history, popular culture is undeniably associated with commercial culture and all its trappings: movies, television, radio, cyberspace, advertising, toys, games nearly any commodity available for purchase, many forms of art, photography, games, and even group “experiences” like collective comet-watching or rave dancing on ecstasy.
We welcome submissions of papers on a wide range of topics pertaining to Popular Culture and its cultural practices globally and through time.
The Editorial Board is primarily made up of students enrolled in CWL 495: Genre. The main purpose of this course is to offer students the opportunity to develop critical editing skills and glean the editorial process experience.
For more information, please contact Dr. Nhora Serrano, Faculty Advisor.
