Journal of Class & Culture (Journal)

ISSN 26341123 , ONLINE ISSN 26341131

The Journal of Class and Culture is a provocative theoretical and empirical intervention into debates concerning class and culture. We reject and challenge the rendering of class as an archaic concept and engage with class as a dynamic category actively shaped by the changing demands of capitalism.

Aims & Scope

The Journal of Class and Culture is a peer reviewed journal which aims to provide a platform for an engagement with and an analysis of the intersection of class and culture. 

It takes an interdisciplinary approach, challenging existing theoretical paradigms and established ways of thinking about and discussing class. Considering class in its various forms – cultural, structural, social, and economic – the journal demonstrates the heterogenous, dynamic and multifaceted nature of class. Its approach is both analytical and explanatory, linking the power of class with the complexities involved in the way it is lived and reproduced. It approaches the question of class from both historical and contemporary perspectives as an engagement with the everyday; television programmes, theatre, education and the legal system, addressing subjects and events which might appear insignificant or disconnected, but when viewed through the lens of class, become hugely important and reveal much about the societies in which we live. 

It recognizes that class as an analytical category has fallen out of favour within many areas of academia while the material impact of class continues to affect the lives of the working class who are strategically excluded from the public sphere. Questions of class do not correspond to single theories or practices nor are they geographically confined, and the journal recognizes questions of class as international, national, and regional.

Drawing on a wide and diverse range of academics and non-academics, encompassing various methodological and epistemological approaches the aim of the journal is to shape this field of research rather than follow it and in the process develop new theoretical perspectives and new methods of enquiry.

Call for Papers Download


General Call for Papers

The Journal of Class & Culture is a new peer-reviewed journal bringing a cultural dimension to the analysis of class, and a class optic to the understanding of culture.

The journal offers a welcome home to class-orientated research of culture both in terms of specific artistic forms (literature, film, theatre, music, etc.), their contexts of production and formal qualities and consumption, as well as the lived cultural practices and rituals of everyday life and their modes of expression.

The journal recognizes that culture is inextricably tied into state apparatuses and power structures and the dynamics of capitalism. It recognizes that class is a contested concept, formulated and understood in different ways, but it insists that such debates are worth having because class relations urgently need to be understood, critiqued and changed.

The journal seeks articles from across the disciplines and articles that are interdisciplinary, using whatever critical frameworks and methods of data generation are suited to the aims of the research. The journal will have themed and general issues and this is a call for submissions to a general issue.

Articles must not normally exceed 8000 words and we are also looking for other content, such as reviews and interviews. To discuss any ideas please contact the principal editor, Deirdre O’Neill.
