  • The Journal of Popular Music Education

    One of the main aims of this journal, especially initially, is iteratively to define the parameters of the field and disciplines of its readership and contributors (especially with regard to other journals in popular music, and music education), this being an emerging field of scholarship and practice. The other principal aim is to disseminate excellent critique and other forms of scholarship (e.g. phenomenological) in and related to the field.

  • Journal of Arab & Muslim Media Research

    The emergence of satellite TV, the internet and digital technology have dramatically changed the way audiences receive information and interact with the media. The sudden success of Al-Jazeera and other Arab broadcasters have altered the way the Arab world narrates itself and reports news from the region to the rest of the world. The journal aims to lead the debate about these emerging rapid changes in media and society in Arab and Muslim parts of the world. All articles are double-blind peer-reviewed in order to maintain the highest standards of scholastic integrity.

  • Journal of Urban Cultural Studies

    In recent years, cities have been increasingly at the forefront of debate in both humanities and social science disciplines, but there has been relatively little real dialogue across these disciplinary boundaries. On the one hand, journals in social science fields that use urban studies methods to look at life in cities rarely explore the cultural aspects of urban life in any depth or delve into close-readings of the representation of cities in individual novels, music albums/songs, graphic novels, films, videogames, online ‘virtual’ spaces, or other artistic and cultural products. On the other hand, while there is increasing discussion of urban topics and themes in the humanities, broadly considered, there are very few journal publications that are open to these new interdisciplinary directions of scholarship. This means that scholars in Language and Literature fields are forced to submit their innovative work to journals that, in general, do not yet admit the link between humanities studies of the representations of cities and more social-science focused urban studies approaches.

  • Book 2.0

  • International Journal of Fashion Studies

    The International Journal of Fashion Studies is a scientific peer-reviewed journal that fosters the worldwide diffusion of Fashion Studies. Fashion Studies is an interdisciplinary field of research that has been producing an extensive repertoire of theories, analyses and enquiries. English being a lingua franca of the international academic world, much of the most influential – not least as it is the most visible - literature has been produced in the English speaking world. Indeed, access to a global readership is premised on the submission to academic journals of texts written in English. However, over the years a meaningful corpus of fashion studies has developed in other regions that have just as much of a tradition as Anglophone countries in costume, clothing, and fashion practice as well as in the study of social and cultural phenomena. But this corpus is not written in English and, because of language obstacles, has not reached an international audience. Scholars who are not English speakers and have neither the time nor the resources to produce texts in that language may be excluded from current debates on fashion, clothing and appearance. The richness of their material can go unacknowledged, which can only deprive the field of Anglophone fashion studies of significant findings and insights. This is at odds with both the global nature of the fashion system and the call, in much contemporary academia, for the fostering of international networks and research.

  • East Asian Journal of Popular Culture

    The East Asian Journal of Popular Culture is the first academic peer-reviewed journal for scholars, teachers, and students from around the world who have an active and passionate interest in the Popular Culture of East Asia.

In the last few decades there has been a huge rise in the interest in East Asian popular culture. The East Asian Journal of Popular Culture will be engaging directly with that trend.

    Journal of Scandinavian Cinema is a double-blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to excellent research and stimulating discussion focusing on the cinemas of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, both within their national and Nordic contexts, and as transnational cinemas in a globalized world. The Nordic countries have a rich history of fiction and non-fiction film-making as well as lively contemporary screen cultures. Journal of Scandinavian Cinema places no restrictions on time period or genre, but particularly encourages the examination of previously uncharted subject matter and the use of new approaches. In that regard, we anticipate that research on Scandinavian cinema will be broadened through the application of ideas, concepts and research traditions from related disciplines. The journal also seeks to highlight the relevance of other audio-visual media and screen cultures, both those that have coexisted with film for some time (such as television) and those that are still gaining importance (such as online video).
