Call for Papers
     The Electronic Center for Contemporary Cultural Studies (ECCCS) is
happy to announce a call for papers for their first issue of 2009. Founded
in August, 2008, The ECCCS is an electronic forum for young scholars
exploring contemporary culture. The ECCCS encourages submissions that
explore, integrate and challenge issues in contemporary culture in the
following areas: Education, New/Social Media, Music, Television/Film and
Society/Culture. With the intention of providing space for a range of
voices and styles, the ECCCS seeks submissions from young scholars, young
professionals with academic or practical experience in the topic they hope
to explore, and academics at the beginning of their careers. The ECCCS
welcomes submissions in the following formats:
- Critical (Academic) Papers
- Essays (Commentary)
- Bloggers

     We strongly encourage, indeed expect, some or all submissions to fall
outside of or overlap our general categories. All submissions must,
however, directly address relevant questions in the larger field of
contemporary culture. Additionally, we ask that:

- Critical papers not exceed 9000 words and follow MLA style guidelines.
- Essays are between 1,000 and 3,000 words long.
- Bloggers provide sample material from an ongoing or recently active blog.

For more detailed information on submission guidelines, please see

     Deadline for the January 2009 issue is January 5, 2009. Please see
the ECCCS’s website, for mission statement, updates and
general information. Please direct all submissions or questions to the
editors at

 From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
