Aims & Scope
The Australasian Journal of Popular Culture is a peer-reviewed journal with an international focus. The journal is devoted to the scholarly understanding of the artefacts and social practices that are produced and are circulated in everyday life. It offers a broad range of scholarly material about many popular culture topics: academic articles; books, exhibitions, video games, new media, website reviews; ‘notes’ and ‘essays’ (original research that is shorter than the scholarly articles). The journal’s aim is to publish innovative scholarly research about popular culture for an international readership. We invite contributions from academics, professionals, cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in popular culture. All relevant material is carefully considered.
