Call for Contributions

We are currently planning to re-edit and republish Britishness and =
Cultural Studies: Continuity and Change in Narrating the Nation in =
England after a successful 'debut' in Poland (eds Knauer and Murray, =
Katowice: Slask, 2000). We are looking for more focus on British =
popular culture and media as well as Asian/Indian Culture in Britain, =
esp that what the anthology explores is a dialogic approach to both =
Britishness and to cultural studies.

If you are interested in having your essay included and/or identify =
another 'gap' and wish to contribute, please contact me at =
knauer_at_euphony.net or editor_at_write-on-line.co.uk

Britishness and Cultural Studies. Continuity and Change in Narrating the =
Nation is a collection of introductory texts for (British) Cultural =
Studies courses. Representing 'British culture' the authors acquaint =
students with Cultural Studies methodologies and practice, especially =
when it is applied in multi- and cross-cultural contexts. Narration of =
national culture is examined from diverse perspectives: class, ethnicity =
and gender; history and postcoloniality; the interdisciplinary quality =
is achieved through analysis of literature, art, mass culture, =
international relations, myths and stereotypes. Students are encouraged =
to interpret contemporary phenomena such as globalisation, migration, =
tourism, the age of information, cross-cultural fertilisation, and the =
rise of new qualities and values. Britishness... presents academic and =
personal approach to culture.
