A cultural move

The Centre for Cultural Studies recently concluded the sale of its in-house magazine Parallax to one of London's oldest and most respected publishers, Taylor & Francis. This is a significant opportunity for the journal to receive a wider readership and further international exposure.

The cultural studies journal was founded in 1993 and has just published its fourth edition edited by Joanne Morra and Marquard Smith, both research students in the Department of Fine Art, and laid out by studio staff member Chris Taylor. The project, launched by Professor Adrian Rifkin, aims to provide a lively forum for debate within cultural studies, has a wide circulation of subscribers from all over the world. Editorial control remains with the Department.

The Department sees it as an on-going initiative to encourage postgraduate students to engage in fully professional editing and publishing, whilst also providing a forum for new researchers to engage with publishing their ideas in progress. Recent issues have covered 'Dissonant Feminisms', 'Kojeve's Paris' and a postgraduate conference organised by the department on George Bataille's work.
