CFP: American Popular Culture as Import and Export (5/15/07; journal issue)

full name / name of organization:

The editors solicit submissions for vol. XXIV of The Americanist: Warsaw
Journal for the Study of the United States (formerly American Studies,
published by the American Studies Center of Warsaw University).

While much has been written about the exporting of American popular culture
around the world, America is also a voracious consumer of popular culture(s)
from around the world. We seek submissions that explore how international
popular culture has been imported to America and transformed by
incorporation in its popular culture. Additionally, we will welcome essays
that study how American popular culture exports have been transformed by
incorporation into a particular national culture. We solicit case studies,
articles examining general cultural trends, analyses of production and
reception, as well as studies in cultural theory.

Texts should be between 4,000 and 6,000 words inclusive of notes and
bibliography. They should be prepared according the MLA Handbook for
Writers of Research Papers, 5th Edition. Manuscripts of articles may be
submitted as attachments to emails in either Word or WordPerfect files or
may be sent in printed form to the address below. Articles should be
double-spaced, with standard margins and font and should include a cover
page, with the title, author's name, institutional affiliation, email
address, and postal address. The text of the essay should have its title
only, without the author's name.

Deadline: 15 May 2006
