MAPACA Publications


We are pleased to invite contributions to MAPACA’s new publication: Response: The Digital Journal of Popular Culture Scholarship.

This new journal will be an open-access, peer-reviewed publication, and we are going to make every effort to tailor and develop content that takes advantages of the possibilities of digital publication. As such, we are hoping that our membership will want to contribute work that sometimes goes outside the “traditional” print-based form of scholarship.

We soliciting from our members submissions of various kinds of scholarship and criticism, including:

  • Traditional peer-reviewed articles (5000-8000 words)
  • A “Round Table” discussion on a specific subject, including perspective from three or more scholars. (2500-4000 words) If you are interested in this, please contact us for suggestions on how to facilitate, moderate, and produce this discussion.
  • Publication / production / event / exhibit reviews (1500-3000 words)
  • An extended editorial or review about the state of your field and/or notable recent development in your area – a “State of the Union” for your area. (3000-4500 words)
  • An in-depth interview with a notable figure in your field (2000-3500 words, or a podcast/recording of 10-20 minutes)
  • Scholarship Based in New Media – Do you have a dynamic narrated photo essay or video project? A ‘TED talk’-type lecture or presentation that is suitable for MAPACA? Let us know if you think that you can showcase your scholarship and research in new media platforms.

If you have material you would like our editorial team to consider, please send a brief proposal/description of your project to by JULY 1, 2015, for possible inclusion in our Fall issue. Our editorial team will contact you with specific submission requirements and deadlines once we have reviewed your proposal.
