Call for Proposals: The Cultural Politics of Media and Popular Culture Series
Editor: C. Richard King, Washington State University
Dedicated to a renewed engagement with culture, this series fosters critical, contextual analyses and cross-disciplinary examinations of popular culture as a site of cultural politics. It welcomes theoretically grounded and critically engaged accounts of the politics of contemporary popular culture and the popular dimensions of cultural politics. Without being aligned to a specific theoretical or methodological approach, The Cultural Politics of Media and Popular Culture publishes monographs and edited collections that promote dialogues on central subjects, such representation, identity, power, consumption, citizenship, desire and difference.
Offering approachable and insightful analyses that complicate race, class, gender, sexuality, (dis)ability and nation across various sites of production and consumption, including film, television, music, advertising, sport, fashion, food, youth, subcultures and new media, The Cultural Politics of Media and Popular Culture welcomes work that explores the importance of text, context and subtext as these relate to the ways in which popular culture works alongside hegemony.
Please direct inquires and proposals to: C. Richard King (crking at wsu dot edu), Professor Critical Culture, Gender & Race Studies, Washington State University.
The series will be published by Ashgate.
