Aim & Scope
Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies is a new journal for 2004 that will publish scholarship for an international readership on communication as a theory, practice, technology, and discipline of power. The journal will feature critical inquiry that cuts across academic boundaries to focus on social, political, and cultural practices from the standpoint of communication. It will promote critical reflection on the requirements of a more democratic culture by giving attention to subjects such as, but not limited to, class, race, ethnicity, gender, ability, sexuality, polity, public sphere, nation, environment, and globalization. Essays will be selected to be academically sound, rhetorically self-reflexive, intellectually innovative, and conceptually relevant to democratic concerns in their orientation toward communication and culture. Collectively, they will analyze historical contexts, material and economic conditions, institutional settings, political initiatives, practices of resistance, and/or the theoretical significance of discursive formations in everyday life. In addition to research essays, CCCS will publish one or more reviews of major new books in each issue. The journal will be published quarterly in March, June, September, and December.
