Critical Arts: south-north cultural and media studies


Critical Arts is a peer-reviewed academic journal publishing 6 issues a year, in the general fields of cultural and media studies and communication. Three of the six are reserved for general issues and single submissions. Three are allocated to theme issues.

>From its outset, Critical Arts has maintained a wide reputation of conceptual freshness, textured writing, and experiential analysis, which draws readers into its articles, narrative themes and its theoretical explorations.

Critical Arts encourages articles that have the potential to influence the ways in which disciplines represented by cultural and media studies think about themselves. Articles that actively shape the field are most welcome. Our niche includes critical dialogues generated within the South-North relationship, with special reference to Africa. The Journal addresses how people, institutions and constituencies cope within, resist and engage this relational nexus.

Critical Arts prides itself in publishing original and theoretically cutting edge articles. Many articles first published in the Journal have been subsequently reprinted with acknowledgement elsewhere. We are proud of this republishing record, which includes original articles first published in Critical Arts by Nobel Laureates J. M. Coetzee and Nadine Gordimer. Stuart Hall, David Kerr, Ntongela Masilela, Handel Kashope Wright and Arvind Singhal feature amongst many of our authors. Critical Arts is subscribed to by over 13 000 university and other libraries in South Africa, Africa, the USA and Europe via Routledge and UNISA Press.
