  • Aims and Scope

    Cultural Politics is an international, refereed journal that explores the global character and effects of contemporary culture and politics. Cultural Politics explores precisely what is cultural about politics and what is political about culture. Publishing across the arts, humanities, and social sciences, the journal welcomes articles from different political positions, cultural approaches, and geographical locations.

    Cultural Politics publishes work that analyzes how cultural identities, agencies and actors, political issues and conflicts, and global media are linked, characterized, examined, and resolved. In so doing, the journal supports the innovative study of established, embryonic, marginalized, or unexplored regions of cultural politics.

    Cultural Politics, while embodying the interdisciplinary coverage and discursive critical spirit of contemporary cultural studies, emphasizes how cultural theories and practices intersect with and elucidate analyses of political power. The journal invites articles on representation and visual culture; modernism and postmodernism; media, film, and communications; popular and elite art forms; the politics of production and consumption; language; ethics and religion; desire and psychoanalysis; art and aesthetics; the culture industry; technologies; academics and the academy; cities, architecture, and the spatial; global capitalism; Marxism; value and ideology; the military, weaponry, and war; power, authority, and institutions; global governance and democracy; political parties and social movements; human rights; community and cosmopolitanism; transnational activism and change; the global public sphere; the body; identity and performance; heterosexual, transsexual, lesbian, and gay sexualities; race, blackness, whiteness, and ethnicity; the social inequalities of the global and the local; patriarchy, feminism, and gender studies; postcolonialism; and political activism.

    Cultural Politics enjoys an agreement with the Chinese journal Cultural Studies, published in Beijing, that allows selected articles to be published in both journals nearly simultaneously, thus furthering intellectual exchange between English- and Chinese-speaking academicians and artists.

    Notes for Contributors

    • Articles should be approximately 5,000–10,000 words in length, including notes and references, and must include a 50-word author biography, a 100- to 300-word abstract, and 3–5 keywords.

    • Interviews should not generally exceed 10,000 words in length, including notes and references, and also require an author biography, an abstract, and 3–5 keywords.

    • Book reviews are normally 1,000 words in length, while review essays range between 2,000 and 5,000 words in length, including notes and references.

    Cultural Politics produces three issues a year and occasional issues devoted to a special topic. Persons wishing to organize a special issue are invited to submit a proposal that contains a 500-word description of the special issue, together with a list of potential contributors and paper subjects. Proposals are accepted only after review by the journal editors.

    Manuscripts

    Manuscripts should be submitted via e-mail to Cultural Politics at j.armitage21@btinternet.com and r.bishop@soton.ac.uk.

    Manuscripts will be acknowledged by the editor and entered into the review process described below. Submission of a manuscript to the journal will be taken to imply that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication and that if accepted for publication, it will not be published elsewhere, in the same form, in any language, without the consent of the editor and publisher. It is a condition of acceptance by the editor of a manuscript for publication that the publishers automatically acquire the copyright of the published article throughout the world. Cultural Politics does not pay authors for their manuscripts, nor does it provide retyping, drawing, or mounting of illustrations.

    Style

    US spelling and mechanicals are to be used. Authors are advised to consult The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.) as a guidebook for style. Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (11th ed.) is our arbiter of spelling. Articles should use endnotes rather than footnotes. For additional guidance about the journal's style, including an explanation of author-date style of documentation and sample citations, please consult the Cultural Politics style guide. We encourage the use of major subheadings and, where appropriate, second-level subheadings. Manuscripts submitted for consideration as an article must contain a title page with the full title of the article, the name and address of each author, a 50-word biography for each author, a 100- to 300-word abstract, and 3–5 keywords relating to the content of the article. Do not place the author's name on any other page of the manuscript.

    Manuscript Preparation

    Manuscripts must be double-spaced (including quotations, notes, and references cited) and formatted for one-inch margins on standard-size paper and must use a typeface no smaller than 12 pts. Accompanying illustrations should be sent as attachments in digital form (300 dpi or above). Any necessary artwork must be submitted with the manuscript. It is the author's responsibility to secure written copyright clearance on all photographs and drawings that are not in the public domain. Copyright should be obtained for worldwide rights and online publishing.

    Tables

    All tabular material should be submitted in a separate electronic file. Each table should appear on a separate page and be identified by a short descriptive title. Footnotes for tables appear at the bottom of the table. Notations in the manuscript should indicate approximately where tables are to appear.

    Criteria for Evaluation

    Cultural Politics is a refereed journal. Manuscripts will be accepted only after review by both the coeditors and anonymous reviewers deemed competent to make professional judgments concerning the quality of the manuscript. Upon request, authors will receive reviewers' evaluations.

  • Description

    Cultural Politics is a welcome and innovative addition. In an academic universe already well populated with journals, it is carving out its own unique place—broad and a bit quirky. It likes to leap between the theoretical and the concrete, so that it is never boring and often filled with illuminating glimpses into the intellectual and cultural worlds.” Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

    Moving beyond the boundaries of race, gender, and class, Cultural Politics examines the political ramifications of global cultural productions across artistic and academic disciplines. The journal explores precisely what is cultural about politics and what is political about culture by bringing together text and visual art that offer diverse modes of engagement with theory, cultural production, and politics.
