Studies in Popular Culture (SiPC) is looking for submissions for the Spring 2020 issue. This journal of the Popular Culture Association in the South (PCAS) publishes articles on popular culture however mediated through film, literature, radio, television, music, graphics, print, practices, associations, events – any of the material or conceptual conditions of life. Contributors include distinguished anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, cultural geographers, ethnomusicologists, historians, and scholars in comics, communications, film, games, graphics, literature, philosophy, religion, and television.

 

A multidisciplinary journal, SiPC gives preference to submissions that demonstrate familiarity with the body of scholarly work on popular culture but avoid the jargon associated with certain single-discipline studies. SiPC accepts submissions on all forms of popular culture (American or international) studied from the perspective of any discipline. If you're not sure if your topic may be suitable for this journal, please email the editor, Dr. Lynnette Porter, Department of Humanities and Communication, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, at sipceditor@gmail.com or porterly@erau.edu to discuss your idea for a submission.

 

Submissions typically total 5000 to 7500 words, including notes and Works Cited, and should be uploaded on the SiPC website (www.studiesinpopularculture.com) as a Word document with the author’s surname in the file name. SiPC is indexed in the annual MLA International Bibliography, and MLA documentation is required. Authors should secure all necessary copyright permissions before submitting material. SiPC uses blind peer review.
