<http://www.reconstruction.ws> is an innovative culture studies journal
dedicated to fostering an intellectual community composed of scholars and

thoughts and opinions on the most important and influential work in

done from any number of perspectives, and with any end in mind; possible

social, local and global "culture," politics, (auto)biography, medicine, the
body, science, texts (music, cinema, literature), media (the internet,
television), myth and religion.

(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.

history, sociology, psychology, communications, anthropology, music,
political science, semiotics, theology, art history, queer theory, literary
criticism, ecocriticism, criminology, urban planning, gender studies, etc.
