The Australasian Journal of Popular Culture

Call For Papers:

Intellect is delighted to announce the next journal in our popular culture series, The Australasian Journal of Popular Culture.

This new peer-reviewed journal is the official journal of the Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (Popcaanz). The journal is devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures and is concerned with the study of the social practices and the cultural meanings that are produced and are circulated through the processes and practices of everyday life. As a product of consumption, an intellectual object of inquiry, and as an integral component of the dynamic forces that shape societies.

We invite academics, professionals, cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in popular culture, to contribute to the first issue of The Australasian Journal of Popular Culture. We welcome papers exploring popular culture’s impact on society, including the arts, humanities, design, architecture and music. The scope of the journal is not limited to the study of popular culture in Australasia but is aimed at the analysis of popular culture on a global and multidisciplinary scale.

Articles should be between 4000 and 6,000 words in length. Topics may include (but are not limited to):
