*About /Conjunctions. Transdisciplinary Journal of Cultural Participation/**:*

The journal seeks to create an international and transdisciplinary forum for the investigation of user-generated cultural production and user-driven cultural participation across a variety of social fields and platforms, e.g. urban spaces, aesthetic co-productions and online environments.

The overall focus is to explore the socially transformative and democratic potential of cultural participation processes, to qualify the academic understanding of what ‘cultural participation’ is and what it involves, and to discuss the complex relations created between user-generated material and established institutions.

We invite submissions from a variety of disciplinary fields such as cultural studies, media studies, cultural geography, aesthetics, science and technology studies, health care, information science, sociology, anthropology, and gender studies.

All articles are open access and published on De Gruyter’s Sciendo platfom after a double-blind review process.
