REVIEWS IN CULTURAL THEORY
Dear friends and colleagues
We are pleased to announce the launch of Reviews in Cultural Theory, a new journal that will be publishing reviews and review essays every two weeks at http://www.reviewsinculture.com Our website will also maintain an announcements section that will be updated weekly with new CFPs, job postings, and other relevant news from the field. The journal emerges from our sense that the rapid growth of work in cultural theory over the past decade demands new forums for tracking the development of this field. Focusing on the distribution of short and timely reviews contributed by scholars working in a wide array of fields, Reviews in Cultural Theory was conceived as a way of responding to the dynamism and pace of the contemporary theorization of culture.
Published online bi-weekly and collected into issues twice yearly, Reviews in Cultural Theory hopes to foreground new work in this field as well as the emergent community of scholars who share an interest in the complex and changing problems of culture today. Reviews to be published in the journal’s first year chart the contemporary shape of cultural theory, touching on Visual Culture, Gender Studies, Geography, Queer Theory, Marxism, Postcolonial Studies, Cultural History, and Sound Studies, among other fields and subjects, established and emerging.
We invite you to take a moment and flip through our first handful of reviews. Please subscribe to our RSS feed, or check back in the coming months for updated news, announcements, and upcoming reviews of Susan Buck-Morss’ Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History, Jody Berland’s North of Empire: Essays on the Cultural Technologies of Space, Enrique Dussel’s Twenty Theses on Politics, Michael Fried’s Why Photography Matters as Art as Never Before, and Cary Wolfe’s What is Posthumanism?, among others. We welcome you to contact us if you have recent work you are interested in reviewing or having reviewed.
The editors: Sarah Blacker and Justin Sully
