About

Arts & Cultural Studies Review is an open-access, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to cultural studies research in all its diversity, publishing a wide range of texts: from  theoretical papers on the philosophy of culture to empirical research concerning specific areas of cultural practices. Our primary goal is to become a space for an academic discussion about the ever-changing phenomenon of culture. We are interested in presenting not only the original research papers but also reviews of books significant for the development of our discipline as well as interviews and debates relevant to contemporary humanities.

From 2006 we have been a platform for Polish academics to present the outcome of their research. In our archives, one can find the articles written by the most significant figures in the field of Polish cultural studies, including Anna Zeidler-Janiszewska, Ewa Rewers, Ryszard Kluszczyński, Wojciech Józef Burszta, Roch Sulima, Sław Krzemień-Ojak, Dariusz Czaja, Andrzej Szahaj. The leading mid-career and young scholars have also been publishing extensively in our journal (including Ewa Wójtowicz, Marcin Składanek, Magdalena Kamińska, Mirosław Filiciak, Tomasz Żaglewski, Ewa Majewska, Monika Górska-Olesinska, Małgorzata Radkiewicz, Piotr Marecki, Blanka Brzozowska, Marianna Michałowska, Anna Nacher).

However, we have always been open to presenting new, thought-provoking works from the authors outside Poland. We have collaborated with many authors, publishing texts written exclusively for Arts & Cultural Studies Review by Victoria Vesna, Michael Punt, Monika Fleischman, Wolfgang Strauss, Martha Blasnigg, Roger F. Malina, Nina Czegledy, Josef Mitterer, Gillian Rose, Leonardo Flores, Levy P. Bryant.

In 2016 we have been awarded the grant from Ministry of Science and Higher Education and decided to develop Arts & Cultural Studies Review as the bilingual platform of publication (with articles in Polish and English). The first such issue was published in 2017 (Literary Practices and Performances in Transmedia Environments, including the materials by Stephanie Strickland, Ian Hatcher, Piotr Marecki, Lori Emmerson, Monika Górska-Olesińska and Anne Karhio among others).

Therefore, we invite English-language papers from international scholars.

Arts & Cultural Studies Review is co-published by The Committee on Cultural Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Faculty of Management and Social Communication of the Jagiellonian University. The third institution that the editorial board closely cooperate with is Jagiellonian University Press (WUJ). All of the published articles are available in open-access through the WUJ/publisher website.

The journal is indexed in numerous databases: ERIH PLUS and CEEOL (Central and Eastern European  Online Library), CEJSH  (The Central European Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities), Index Copernicus International – ICV 2014: 83.97 (7.88), ProQuest Central, EBSCO Publishing (Ebsco Discovery Service), EBSCO Publishing (Humanities Source), MLA (Modern Language Association), Zeitschriftendatenbank (ZDB).
