IN THEORY is a new magazine aiming to bring the best of cultural
studies to a diverse non-academic audience. We feature short
commentary on texts and practices specific to contemporary popular
culture: advertisements, films, fashion trends, television shows,
celebrity scandals, web memes, food packaging, greeting cards, advice
columns, etc. Articles should borrow from semiotics, psychoanalysis,
queer theory, narratology, and other academic disciplines associated
with cultural studies and critical theory, while remaining accessible
to a general audience. Ideally, articles should surprise and
entertain, presenting smart, pithy analysis of familiar subject matter.

We’re currently seeking submissions no longer than 2,500 words. Pay
ranges between $100 and $500. Article submissions should be preceded
by a short pitch and bio, sent via email to
submissions_at_theorymag.com. For more information, including our
mission statement and an extended list of possible topics, please
contact Nathalie_at_theorymag.com.
