about IJCS

The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies is a peer-reviewed publication that mixes traditional approaches and contemporary interventions in the interdisciplinary humanities and interpretive social sciences. IJCS is published exclusively in special issues. The result of our unique combination of approach and editing is that each issue serves as a conversation between established and emerging scholars; a lucid engagement of theoretical and ideological divides, and the evocation of new shared paths in cultural studies.
