New Journal seeking editors

[Readers might want to suggest further topics to the editor also.]

I am in the process of putting together a proposal for the creation of a scholarly journal of philosophy and popular culture. This journal is aimed directly at, and for, the academic market. If you are interested in volunteering for the editoral board, I would love to hear from you. Please send me a note off line along with a brief C.V., the area of discussion (see below) that you would be comfortable with, and /or link to your homepage.  By ‘popular culture’ I denote the following events, entertainments and experiences as explicated by the American Journal of Popular Culture (with the addition of a few areas that I think also are applicable.)
 
Advertising
Amusement parks
Animation
Transportation enthusiasts (car, plane, train, boat, bus, motocycle, bicycle etc.)
Celebrities
Circuses
War games and re-enactments
Collecting & Collectibles
Comic Art & Comics
Photography
Dance
Fandom
Fashion
Costumes
Body modification
Festivals & Fairs
Movies
Food
Internet Culture
Magazines and Newspapers
Books
Slang and Urban Speak
Music
Radio
Consumerism
Electronics
Toys
Clubs and Societies
Magicians and Illusionists
Sports and sporting events
Underground Culture
Television
Theatre
World’s Fairs & Expositions
Fads and Trends
Games (Board, Computer, Childrens’ etc.)
Parades
Festivals
Handicrafts
 
Again, this journal is to be marketed to professional philosophers and universities and is not intended for laypersons. Please forward this email to your colleagues who may also be interested.

Cheers, Jeff

  1. I have two publications in pop-culture books–The X-Files and Philosophy and Steven Spielberg and Philosophy. I’m familiar with movies and tv especially. I have an extensive collection of silver-age comics as well.
