The editors of Lateral: The Journal of the Cultural Studies Association are pleased to call for papers for the forthcoming issue on any topic related to the field or practice of cultural studies within historical and/or contemporary contexts. Strong submissions situate their considerations of cultural practices, critical theories, and/or pedagogies within established and emerging conversations on racism, capitalism, sexuality, gender, ability, and colonialism. In addition to finished academic papers, the editors also welcome contributions that engage or have the potential to engage the visual and interactive aspects of the open-access, web-based publication platform.

  • Articles should be 4000 to 9500 words in length, submitted as a Microsoft Word compatible document.
  • In order to facilitate peer review, identifiable information such as authors’ names should not appear on manuscripts. Include name, institutional affiliation, contact information, title, and brief abstract in a separate document submitted with your manuscript.
  • Citations should be formatted as endnotes according to The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition.

Please forward manuscripts to the editors at and by November 15th, 2015. Earlier submissions are encouraged and inquiries are welcome.
