„Journal of Applied Cultural Studies”

Friday, December 15, 2017

The Journal of Applied Cultural Studies is an international scientific journal directed at researchers representing all fields of the humanities and social sciences. The editorial board of the journal publishes original scientific articles, focused on the concept of applied cultural studies. Empirically-oriented social science, since its beginnings, has faced the problem of defining the aim of its studies. The social sciences have failed in their attempt to develop a logos out of the different forms of ethnic, social and national life. The authors of the project believe that culture is an assemblage of patterns preserved in the traditions and customs of a particular community.

In Living a Feminist Life, Sara Ahmed says “to become a feminist is to stay a student” (11). As graduate students interested in feminist work, we are the future of the academic world, and we are also explicitly invested in the future of feminism. How do we grapple or imagine these feminist futures?

The Anatomy of Inscription (Special Issue of Humanities)

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - 1:18pm
Hunter Dukes, University of Cambridge
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2018

In their 1910 essay ‘Poetic Principles’, Nikolai and David Burliuk describe poetry as ‘sensible’, arguing that the word ‘changes its qualities according to whether it is handwritten, printed or thought’. Jacques Derrida widens this claim in Of Grammatology (1967), writing that one of the ‘fundamental problems’ when coming to terms with signification is the deployment of ‘diverse forms of graphic substances (material: wood, wax, skin, stone, ink, metal, vegetable)’, as well as different kinds of styli. How do the material properties of writing feed back into its semantic sense, differing when engraved in stone or tattooed on skin?
