*IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies - Announcement of Publication, Call for Submissions and Expressions of Interest for Editorial Positions*

It gives us great pleasure to announce the publication of the latest /IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies/, Issue 2.1. It is open-access and can be found here:

*Call for Journal Submissions and Reviewers*

The /IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies/ ( solicits scholarship in the broad areas of culture, social development, the arts, digital communities, philosophy and similar.

While much of the Journal’s focus rests on Asia, it encourages contributions from all across the globe, thereby establishing links between intercultural and transcultural phenomena and fostering their analysis. Asia is a continent constantly evolving within a restive world and one, if not the main, motor of the drive for change today. It is the aim of this journal to provide challenging and incisive commentary to accompany this process.

The /IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies/ is an open access peer-reviewed journal for developing topics, threads and nodes of cultural understanding. The journal recognises that Cultural Studies is necessarily hybrid and fluid in nature and that even the establishment of common research fields (itself a highly contested exercise) will do little to discipline it. This however does not relieve Cultural Studies of the necessary reflection upon its own histories and present-day status quo. As cultures are becoming increasingly mediated, ample space will be provided for those interventions highlighting the relationship between (media) technology and culture. It is hoped that some of these discussions will take place in the virtual pages of this journal and that these theoretical interventions will stimulate and facilitate further research.

The IAFOR Journal of Media, Communication and Film is indexed in EBSCO Discovery Service, Communication Source, SHERPA/RoMEO <> and Google Scholar <>.

The Journal is now inviting submissions for its next issues, 2.2 and 3.1.Issue 2.2 is an open topic issue and the deadline is *1 July 2017*.

Issue 3.1 is a themed issue, with the topic "The Future of Media in Culture". The deadline for submissions for this issue is *1 December 2017*.Please make sure that your submission corresponds to the journal's style sheet which can be found at the address listed below.
