Aims and Scope
The Canadian Journal of Popular Culture is a new peer-reviewed journal and is the official journal of the Popular Culture Association of Canada (PCAC or “canpop”). The journal is devoted to the scholarly understanding of popular culture in its broadest sense, encompassing non-mass-mediated as well as mass-mediated forms, texts and practices, both historical and contemporary. While encouraging submissions in all areas of popular culture, the journal will be particularly receptive to articles that focus on Canadian examples, or on broader comparative and theoretical questions viewed through a Canadian lens.
Call for Papers
We invite academics, professionals, cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in popular culture to contribute to The Canadian Journal of Popular Culture. The scope of the journal is not limited to the study of popular culture in Canada, but is aimed at the analysis of popular culture on a global and multidisciplinary scale. Articles should be between 4,000 and 6,000 words in length. Potential contributors should send a 200–word abstract to the editors using our contact page (selecting “Journal” from the drop down menu). Submissions should be in either English or French and adhere to the Intellect Style Guide.
