Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies

In 2004, when Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies published its first issue, Bob Ivie wrote, “I would say that the spirit of this journal is one of experimentation, exploration, invention, and innovation, that our project is in a perpetual state of becoming, and that we aim to address our readers as a scholarly journal with attitude.”[1] Entering our fifteenth year, little has changed. Today, the journal continues to publish the very best scholarship located between communication, critical, and cultural studies. Exploring communication in its many forms and its widely varying locations, CC/CS is a leading voice in studying communicative practices that enable and deny agency, that promote and undermine democracy, that foster and undercut freedom.

Over the coming three years, I trust the journal will continue this crucial mission. I and the editorial board invite essays from a multitude of perspectives that explore the weaving of power and communication in widely varying settings. The Journal publishes essays from and about many regions of the world and with a wide variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. The Journal’s scholarship draws on careful, rigorous, and detailed studies of communication to demonstrate the political force of communicative practices. These pages will be one location in which critical and cultural studies scholars from around the world meet to discuss and deliberate about communication’s consequentiality.
