Aims & Scope


The Australasian Journal of Popular Culture is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures. It is concerned with the study of the social practices and the cultural meanings that are produced and circulated through the processes and practices of everyday life as a product of consumption, an intellectual object of inquiry and as an integral component of the dynamic forces that shape societies. The journal publishes articles which focus on Australasian examples, or broader comparative and theoretical questions viewed through an Australasian lens.
