About M/C

Mission Statement

M/C — Media and Culture was founded in 1998 as a place of public intellectualism, analysing and critiquing the meeting of media and culture. Our publications and other activities serve as a point of crossover between the popular and the academic — we take seriously the need to move ideas outward, so that our debates may have some resonance with wider political and cultural interests.

Our Publications

  • M/C Journal

    M/C Journal (which began in July 1998 as "M/C — A Journal of Media and Culture") is a fully blind peer-reviewed academic journal, but also remains open to submissions and responses from anyone on the Internet. Each issue is organised around a one word theme, and is edited by one or two editors with a particular interest in that theme. The editors change for each issue. Each issue has a feature article which engages with the theme in some detail, followed by several shorter articles.

  • M/C Reviews

    M/C Reviews, which launched in September 1998, is a companion piece to M/C Journal. It is neither simply a sub-section, nor completely independent of it; you, the reader, decide how you want to see it. Most of the reviews published here are informed by the culture-critical perspective of M/C and the disciplines of media and cultural studies, but you don't need to take notice of this fact; if you do, however, you'll find that they frequently tie in with debates represented in greater length in M/C Journal. Articles in M/C Reviews are published as they come to hand; since culture is an ongoing process, so should be the reviews.

  • M/Cyclopedia of New Media

    The M/Cyclopedia, first published in November 2004, provides a backdrop to many of the debates conducted through M/C, but also stands as a publication in its own right. In the ever-changing new media environment it is important to track the development of key issues and terms; the M/Cyclopedia helps with task. It is updated every year with the help of students in the New Media Technologies unit in the Creative Industries Faculty at Queensland University of Technology.
