The Australasian Journal of Popular Culture
is a new peer-reviewed journal and the official journal of the Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (Popcaanz). The journal is devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures and is concerned with the study of the social practices and the cultural meanings that are produced and are circulated through the processes and practices of everyday life. As a product of consumption, an intellectual object of inquiry, and as an integral component of the dynamic forces that shape societies.

Contributions:
We invite academics, professionals, cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in popular culture, to contribute to the first issue of The Australasian Journal of Popular Culture. We welcome papers exploring popularculture’s impact on society, including the arts, humanities, design, architecture and music. The scope of the journal is not limited to the study of popular culture in Australasia but is aimed at the analysis of popular culture on a global and multidisciplinary scale.

Articles should be between 4000 and 6,000 words in length. Potential Contributors should send a 200–word abstract to editors Dr Toni Johnson-Woods or A/Professor Vicki Karaminas. All submissions should be in English and adhere to the Intellect Style Guide.

 

Call for Digital Creative Works
POPCAANZ 2015 Exhibition: Virtually Pop
 
The Popular Culture Association of Australia and New
Zealand (PopCAANZ) is calling for proposals to an exhibition associated with its 6th Annual Conference at the College of Creative Arts, Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand, 29 June- 1 July 2015.
 
The Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (PopCAANZ) is devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures. It is concerned
with the study of the social practices and the cultural meanings that are produced and are circulated through the processes and practices of everyday life. As a product of consumption, an intellectual object of inquiry, and as an
integral component of the dynamic forces that shape societies.
 
The exhibition will feature original works in various virtual forms such as videos, digital still images, films, websites and animations including representations of two or three-dimensional works. We invite artists, artist academics, and cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in
popular culture, to submit creative work including:
 
• A statement outlining the creative work’s contribution and relation to popular culture. Note that the theme of the exhibition is a proposition not a prescription
• A description of the art / design work(s)
• Link(s) to Zip drive, Cloudstor, websites or shared folders where the work can be viewed
• Identification of digital format, file type, sound and duration (if applicable),
• Technical requirements
• 1 page curriculum vitae with contact details.
 
Send all proposals to Julieanna Preston (j.preston@massey.ac.nz) and Adam
Geczy (adam.geczy@sydney.edu.au) by 15 February 2015. All creative works must be new and original and not have been exhibited or disseminated before. Submissions will be reviewed by a peer-review curatorial panel and decisions announced by 15 March 2015. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue. Exhibiting artists/designers are expected to attend the POPCAANZ conference. (www.popcaanz.com)
 
Note that there will be opportunities for ‘critical impact’ in the form of visual citations in the journal (at the discretion of the editors) as well as a review of the exhibition in the Australasian Journal of Popular Culture.
