This article presents an invitation to scholars worldwide who are working in the field of critical cultural studies to submit manuscripts to the National Communication Association's journal, Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, published by Routledge. The journal's editorial board consists of leading scholars in a wide of array of communication and related field and from a variety of countries. The journal publishes scholarship for an international readership on communication as a theory, practice, technology, and discipline of power. The journal features critical inquiry that cuts across academic boundaries to focus on social, political, and cultural practices from the standpoint of communication. It promotes critical information on the requirements of a more democratic culture by giving attention to subjects such as, but not limited to, class, race, ethnicity, gender, ability, sexuality, polity, public sphere, nation, environment, and globalization. Essays are selected to be academically sound, rhetorically self-reflexive, intellectually innovative, and conceptually relevant to democratic concerns in their orientation toward communication and culture. Collectively, they analyze historical contexts, material and economic conditions, institutional settings, political initiatives, practices of resistance, and/or the theoretical significance of discursive formations in everyday life.
