„Journal of Applied Cultural Studies”

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

The Journal of Applied Cultural Studies is an international scientific journal directed at researchers representing all fields of the humanities and social sciences. The editorial board of the journal publishes original scientific articles, focused on the concept of applied cultural studies. Empirically-oriented social science, since its beginnings, has faced the problem of defining the aim of its studies. The social sciences have failed in their attempt to develop a logos out of the different forms of ethnic, social and national life. The authors of the project believe that culture is an assemblage of patterns preserved in the traditions and customs of a particular community.

As graduate students interested in feminist work, we are the future of the academic world, and we are also explicitly invested in the future of feminism. How do we grapple or imagine these feminist futures?
