About the Journal

Cultural Studies Review is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the publication and circulation of quality thinking in cultural studies—in particular work that draws out new kinds of politics, as they emerge in diverse sites. We are interested in writing that shapes new relationships between social groups, cultural practices and forms of knowledge and which provides some account of the questions motivating its production. We welcome work from any discipline that meets these aims. Aware that new thinking in cultural studies may produce a new poetics we have a dedicated new writing section to encourage the publication of works of critical innovation, political intervention and creative textuality.

The journal is a review in the fullest sense. We seek serious engagement with new publications in cultural studies as well as with events in other modes that suggest new cultural tendencies or which ask us to think again about the politics of transmission in culture across the world.  We warmly welcome reviews and translations of work published in other languages or in media other than text.

Cultural Studies Review is an open-access e-journal which reflects our belief that the critical and creative thinking produced by scholars should be widely available and our respect for the author’s ownership of their own thinking. 

CSR is published twice a year (in March and September) by UTSePress. It is available from the UTS Cultural Studies Review website. Access is free but you will need to register to make on-line submissions and to receive publication alerts.
