Critical Arts - A Journal of South-North Cultural and Media Studies

Culturelink has announced the publication of the latest special edition of Critical Arts: A Journal of South-North Cultural and Media Studies. This issue, edited by Sonja Narunsky-Laden and entitled Cultural Economy, features articles examining the “post-transitional” economy of South Africa.

According to Culturelink, “Critical Arts is a non-profit project owned and produced by an independent group of academics who act as editors, associate editors, editorial consultants, and regional organizers. The journal is currently located in the Centre for Cultural and Media Studies at the University of Natal in Durban, where its editor-in-chief, Prof. Keyan Tomaselli, is director. The journal's editorial consultants and editorial associates are presently drawn from South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe in Africa, and scholars in Scandinavia, England, the U.S., Canada, and Australia. The first issue was published in 1980. Critical Arts is a truly international journal, with international authorship, an international editorial board, and international readership. It regularly receives submissions from the rest of Africa ( Nigeria, Lesotho, Malawi, Ghana, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, Ivory Coast, etc.) as well as from India, Australia, USA, UK, Belgium, France, and Ireland. Theme issue editors have been selected from South Africa, Namibia, the U.S., the U.K., and Australia.”
