 Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture (ISSN 1547-4348)
<> is an innovative culture studies journal
dedicated to fostering an intellectual community composed of scholars and
their audience, granting them all the opportunity and ability to share
thoughts and opinions on the most important and influential work in
contemporary interdisciplinary studies.

We are particularly interested in reviewing manuscripts that interrogate
media in theory and practice. This may be done from any number of
perspectives, and can reflect a wide range of approaches. Studies that
define critical concepts with the aid of empirical research are encouraged.
Topics may include new/old media, convergence, spectacle, storage,
interactivity, reception, static, transmission, contingency, globalization,
virtual, design, access, form/content, effects, etc.

Because we are committed to maintaining a regular publishing schedule
(general issues in January, April, October, with special themed issues in
July), we are always accepting submissions for upcoming issues, and promise
a prompt reply for all enquiries and submissions.

Submissions are encouraged from a variety of perspectives, including, but
not limited to: geography, cultural studies, folklore, architecture,
history, sociology, psychology, communications, anthropology, music,
political science, semiotics, theology, art history, queer theory, literary
criticism, criminology, urban planning, gender studies, etc. All theoretical
and empirical approaches are welcomed.

In matters of citation, it is assumed that the proper MLA format will be
followed. Other citation formats are acceptable in respect to the
disciplinary concerns of the author. Additional information on the
preparation of manuscripts for submission can be found at

All submissions and submission queries should be written care of
