dedicated to the exploration of the ideological implications in the
representation of culture from the theoretical perspective of Cultural

The first issue will deal with the topic of "Intercultural Representation"
in any of its social contexts (artistic, literary, social, political,
historical, educational, linguistic, etc.) and will be focused on,
following Stuart Hall, how intercultural manifestations negotiate and
hybridise hegemonic cultural models, creating new forms of self-expression
and opposition.

The publishing date for the Journal is September 2003.

Suggested topics for exploration in connection with the phenomenon of
interculturalism would be:
- Ideology and representation in intercultural contexts
- Popular culture, subcultures and countercultures
- Cultural diversity and cultural peripheries
- The practices of everyday life as modes of subversion
- Processes of cultural opposition: hybridisation, carnival, etc.
- Symbolic representations of culture through the arts

other approaches are also encouraged.

Deadline for submissions is 15 June 2003.
