Popular Entertainment Studies

An interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the investigation of all aspects of popular entertainments



Call for Papers: Vol. 8, no. 1 (March 2017)


We would invite all scholars and scholar-practitioners interested in the theory, practices or history of popular entertainments to submit an expression of interest as soon as possible for the March issue. The scope of the journal is very wide: over the years we have ranged from 19th century cabaret and transnational touring companies  to sport as entertainment to the provision of entertainment for troops serving in Afghanistan. The media considered have included live theatre performance, television and film. 


Expressions of interest should be sent as soon as possible to the General Editor, Victor Emeljanow (Victor.Emeljanow@newcastle.edu.au) or the Associate Editor, Gillian Arrighi (Gillian.Arrighi@newcastle.edu.au). The deadline for the submission of final articles is Wednesday January 11, 2017."
