Send all queries, proposals and manuscripts to [email protected]

Read below about the journal Reconstruction and threshold special theme issues and their deadlines. The editors expect this issue to fill very quickly due to the importance of this subject.
Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture (ISSN 1547-4348) is an innovative culture studies journal dedicated to fostering an intellectual community composed of scholars and their audience, granting them all the opportunity and ability to share thoughts and opinions on the most important and influential work in contemporary interdisciplinary studies.

Manuscripts may be written from any number of perspectives, and with any end in mind; possible sites for articulations may focus on the urban, the rural, the natural, the social, local and global "culture," politics, (auto)biography, medicine, the body, science, texts (music, cinema, literature), media (the internet, television), myth and religion.

Submissions are encouraged from a variety of perspectives, including, but not limited to: geography, cultural studies, folklore, architecture, history, sociology, psychology, communications, anthropology, music, political science, semiotics, theology, art history, queer theory, literary criticism, ecocriticism, criminology, urban planning, gender studies, etc. All theoretical and empirical approaches are welcomed.

This special issue is a threshold issue. Thresholds are about the transgressing, pushing or collapsing of boundaries; they are about the point of beginning, the entranceway and stimulation. Thus, threshold issues are dedicated to exploring an experimental theme, novel method(s) or theoretical apparatus(es) that might not normally find an audience. Rather than having firm publication dates - due to the experimental nature of their contents - threshold issues are published once a minimum number of acceptable submissions are received. If this minimum is not met by 18 months from the December 13, 2005, the approved manuscripts will be published in the next available issue of the journal.

Information on the preparation of manuscripts for submission can be found Here.

Reconstruction is published quarterly (January, April, July, and October) and is currently indexed in the MLA International Bibliography.
