CALL FOR PAPERS - Please do not forget to submit your articles before 14 October:


'Impact' encapsulates the outcomes of the work of a new generation of cultural researchers and to what extent it has the capacity to influence the direction of current debates in the public sphere surrounding social, political and cultural agendas. The theme 'impact' was chosen because of the conviction that cultural research has the potential to have enormous impact not only on academia but also on the wider community. Through introducing new discourses, perspectives and paradigms which have the capacity to influence policy making, cultural researchers can position themselves as intermediaries to inform societal groups through utilizing mediums such as the media, in ways that impact upon and have relevance to the everyday lives of various communities.

The papers selected for publication will cover broad-ranging topics, but will all convey the importance for emerging cultural research to have general applicability and thus impact on a wider audience. Contributions discuss successes, pitfalls and experimental research methodologies, identity politics (queer, indigenous, ethnical) both in Australia and internationally as well as explorations into the use of film, theatre and the internet.

We invite researchers in the field of cultural research to discuss their work and talk about the impact their own projects have in reshaping the agenda of cultural research. In particular, we would like to feature new work by the 'next generation' of cultural researchers critically generating new directions and paradigms in terms of the processes of conducting research and the products of their investigations. How can your research forge accessible, transparent and practicable forms of cultural understanding, and create genuine solutions to social and cultural problems?
