[ecrea] Call for Proposals: Cultural Studies and Marxism Book Series

<>* Book

*Book Series Editor: Jaafar Aksikas*


The /Cultural Studies and Marxism/
series is now seeking proposals for original books and edited volumes.
The series is a timely and valuable contribution to the larger field of
contemporary cultural studies. The global capitalist crisis of the
twenty-first century has prompted renewed interest in critical political
economy and Marxist theory. At the same time, publishing institutions
committed to a robust articulation between cultural studies, critical
political economy, and Marxism are almost non-existent. The series is
dedicated to addressing this situation by highlighting and making
available important (and emergent) scholarship at the intersection of
these three fields.

The aim of the series is to publish important theoretical as well as
empirical and historical contributions as the basis for vigorous
intellectual debate and exchange among cultural studies practitioners
and scholars. We are convinced that a project of this kind can make an
important contribution to the revitalization and renewal of the
politically committed intellectual project of cultural studies. As such,
the series also promises to be a vital component of the struggle to
produce useful knowledge that enables us to change the social world we
live in and make it better and more humane.

The peer-reviewed series will publish original monographs and edited
collections across the bounds of academic disciplinary agendas, and
across the divisions and institutions of cultural studies. We are keen
for the series to include as wide a range of voices, practices, formats,
approaches, positions, and interests as possible, so while the
‘traditional’ scholarly monograph is welcomed, we would also encourage
other formats, such as edited collections, treatises and manifestos.

The series also seeks to be a space where connections amongst Cultural
Studies practitioners across generations and locations are formed.
Because the alliances built by Cultural Studies practitioners in the
U.S. and the global north are deeply shaped by the global south/Third
World perspectives, the series will also be open to contributions from
scholars and practitioners in and outside of the U.S., including those
who may offer a transnational perspective on practicing Cultural Studies.
