  • Description

    For more than twenty years Public Culture has been publishing field-defining ethnographies and analyses of the cultural politics of globalization. Providing a forum for the internationalization of cultural studies, Public Culture essays have mapped the capital, human, and media flows drawing cities, peoples, and states into transnational relationships and political economies. Anthropologists, historians, sociologists, artists, and scholars of politics, literatures, architecture, and the arts have made groundbreaking contributions in its pages. With its essays and visual pieces, the journal increasingly shapes the way we talk about public cultures and globalization in a diasporic world. Public Culture's concern with transnationalism has shaped and been shaped by an international readership, and the journal is today the medium for conceptual and political discussion for an emerging international public sphere.

    Public Culture is a four-time CELJ award-winning journal with an avid and forward-thinking multidisciplinary readership around the world.
