Postmodern Culture Call for Reviews: Deadline 30 March 2004.

_Postmodern Culture_ is looking for reviews of recent books, films, CDs,
plays, TV shows, concerts, sporting events, performances, exhibitions,
conferences and conventions, happenings, and so forth, for the May
2004 issue. Reviews should be approximately 2000-3500 words long and
should follow the journal's format guidelines below.

For the upcoming May 2004 issue, reviews should be submitted by 30 March.
A selection will be made at that time. All correspondence will be
answered and all submissions will be given careful consideration. We
regret that we are unable to provide review copies to our reviewers.

The current issue of _Postmodern Culture_ is available on the web at

Formatting guidelines and a list of suggested titles are to be found

Send reviews, proposals, or queries to Paula Geyh at


Reviewers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the journal and
its review section in particular before submitting reviews. The current
issue of _Postmodern Culture_ can be accessed on the Web at

You can save us a good deal of work by following these guidelines:

Reviews should generally run between 2000 and 3500 words, or about 8-14
ordinary manuscript pages. Each review should be accompanied by a brief
(3-5 line) bio of the reviewer.

Set margins to half-inch left, two-inch right, and set your font to
Courier 10cpi (or any 10cpi, non-proportional font). This is very
important, as it prevents too many characters on a line. Macintosh/Apple
users, however, should use Times Roman (or something similar) rather than
Courier, which creates glitches when read by PCs.

Put a title at the top of the first page, and under it your name,
institutional affiliation, email address, and mailing address. Center
these lines.

Below this, indicate the work reviewed as follows:

Review of
Author, _title_. City: Publisher, Date.

Number all paragraphs of your text with bracketed numbers (e.g., [1],

Indent (to 1") the first line of each paragraph and all lines of set-off

Single-space the document, but use double spacing between paragraphs.

Use _this_ for underlining titles, *this* for bold print or emphasis,
%this% for foreign words, and ^this^ for superscript. Notes should be
indicated in the text by ^1^ (and so on), and then again, at the end of
the document, by ^1^ (and so on), followed by the text of the notes
themselves. Footnotes created using word-processing commands will not
transfer into our formatting.

Footnotes and Works Cited page, if any, should follow MLA format.

Page references in the text, if any, should not be preceded by p., pp., or
any other notation; use just the page number itself.

Send your submission to the review editor, Paula Geyh, by e-mail to, not to the _PMC_ offices. Submissions should be sent as
e-mail attachments in either Word or Word Perfect (if using some other
word-processing program, save the document in ASCII).
