Autopsia Online Journal
contact email: 

Autopsia is an online, international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that provides a diverse forum for scholars and professionals to interrogate and challenge the intellectual and aesthetic dimensions of mass culture. Autopsia invites critical and/or theoretical examinations that further our understanding of the serial consumption and the circulation of ideas, images and objects that flow from numerous centers, margins and multiplicities of production from the Industrial Revolution to the present. The journal welcomes submissions for publication that perform autopsies on a broad range of media: film, literature, art, and philosophy with a particular emphasis on how these cultural productions function as commodities.

The first issue of Autopsia is forthcoming in April 2010.
