The “big four” American entertainment awards—the Emmy for television, the Grammy for music, the Oscar for film, and the Tony for theater, often referred to by the “EGOT” acronym—have long served as a barometer of mainstream taste cultures in their respective fields. While literature on media awards is not completely absent, its scope has been narrow. Popular press works on the somewhat standardized journalistic narratives surrounding the EGOT, particularly the Oscars. Scholarly literature has largely focused on awards as they pertain to the international art cinema circuit and its attached film festivals, such as the Cannes Film Festival.
The Ray Browne Conference for Popular Culture Studies
Considering Conclusions: What Do We Learn When We Unpack the Popular?
March 5th and 6th 2021
Call For Papers
Though once the study of popular texts--the everyday people and things of modern culture--was off-limits for the legitimate scholar, today a scholarly investigation of the popular is made by a diverse community of scholars, within and beyond the liberal arts, whose discoveries offer insights, answers, and contributions to the questions at the core of a variety of fields.
Censorship and blind spots: the BBC’s silences
The BBC's reputation for impartiality and independence is one of the cornerstones of its value system, which also underpins its self-declared mission to "inform, educate, and entertain". However, these values have constantly been redefined as several forms of censorship and self-censorship have been applied in the context of conflict with political or economic powers. This means that the role and independence of the BBC as a public service needs to be questioned and the grey areas and silences of the BBC from its creation in 1922 to the beginning of its digital era in 1995 need to be the objects of inquiry.
Dear Cultural Studies Community,
We regret to inform you that Ege University 18th Cultural Studies Symposium, which is supposed to be held in May 2021, is cancelled due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases all over the world. We, as the Organizing Committee members, believe hosting an online event would not suit the spirit of our symposium which is especially prominent for gathering academics from all the branches of social sciences along with other disciplines in Izmir.
We hope to actualise the event in May 2022 with the expectation of a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases and are looking forward to welcoming you with an exciting topic.
Thank you for your understanding.
Dr. Funda Civelekoglu

Gentes Gentes is made of four sections:
Children’s literature as a field is not bounded by geography, and so critical discussions of the children’s literary tradition outside of a US context appear frequently in journals ranging from The New England Reading Association, to The Lion and the Unicorn, and The Reading Teacher. In fact, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly dedicated the Winter 2018 issue to “Migration, Refugees, and Diaspora in Children's Literature.” Despite the abundance of critical work, pedagogical resources such as Evelyn B. Freeman and Barbara A.
The Journal for the Study of Radicalism interested in articles for an issue that explores the history of ecological radicalism, including the recent history of movements, groups, and individuals. We are also interested in related currents, which could include anarchism, black bloc, antifa, and the creation of autonomous zones, as well as ecological movements or groups like Extinction Rebellion. And we welcome articles on various forms of religious radicalism across the political spectrum.
