Fieldwork and Interdisciplinary Research
Journal Issue, Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture

Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture
<> (ISSN: 1547-4348) is an innovative
online cultural studies journal dedicated to fostering an intellectual
community composed of scholars and their audience, granting them all
the ability to share thoughts and opinions on the most important and
influential work in contemporary interdisciplinary studies.
Reconstruction publishes one open issue and three themed issues

Vibha Arora and Justin Scott-Coe invite submissions of papers and
review essays for Reconstruction 9.1: Fieldwork and Interdisciplinary
Research (2009). Fieldwork transforms our identities in the field, in
our discipline, and the discipline itself. In this issue we aim to
situate the contours of future fields of study, and celebrate the
intersecting pathways that unite the diverse disciplines through
hybrid methodologies. This special issue of Reconstruction explores
the relationship between fieldwork and interdisciplinary research on
the environment, health, social science and science and technology,
cyberspace, visual culture and communications, films and public
culture, music and the performing arts, sociology and anthropology and
literature, development and public policy. Young researchers play a
critical role in dissolving disciplinary barriers and experimenting
with new research methodologies and thematic areas; hence, submissions
by advanced graduate students are being encouraged. Multi-media
projects are also welcome.

Abstracts giving the title of paper, author's name and affiliation
(with a short biographical note) are due 31 December 2007. Selected
abstracts will be invited to submit full papers for peer-review by 31
March 2008. Publication is expected in the first quarter of 2009. Send
submissions and further inquiries to Dr. Vibha Arora
<> and Justin Scott-Coe

Reconstruction Style guidelines are available at

In addition to papers, we are soliciting book reviews, review essays,
and reviews of music, exhibitions, photographs, etc. having an
interdisciplinary focus.
