[Commlist] CFP - Critical Arts: South-North Cultural and Media Studies

Wed Mar 06 13:13:11 GMT 2019


*/Critical Arts: /*/south-north cultural and media studies/


/Critical Arts/is a peer-reviewed journal publishing 6 numbers annually, in the general fields of communication, cultural and media studies, art and digital culture and critical indigenous qualitative methodologies. Three of the six numbers are reserved for general issues and single submissions. Three are allocated to theme issues. Recent topics include ‘Brand China’, the ‘Ethnographic Turn in Art’, ‘African Cultural Studies’ and ‘Media and Empire’.


/Critical Arts/seeks conceptual freshness, textured writing, and experiential analysis which draws readers into its articles, narrative themes and its theoretical explorations.

/Critical Arts/encourages articles that can potentially influence the ways in which disciplines think about themselves. Our niche includes critical inter-hemispherical dialogues generated within South-North and East-West relationships. The Journal addresses how people, institutions and constituencies cope within, resist and engage this relational nexus.

Early authors included Nobel Laureates JM Coetzee and Nadine Gordimer. Later, Stuart Hall, Richard Collins, Ntongela Masilela, Handel Wright, Hopeton Dunn, Kris Rutten and Ndjabulo Ndebele have featured amongst our authors. /Critical Arts/ is subscribed to by over 13 000 university and other libraries in South Africa, Africa, the USA and Europe via Taylor & Francis  and UNISA Press. /Critical Arts/ has a high readership in China.
