"Popular Entertainment Studies"
Expressions of interest are invited from scholars and scholar/practitioners for the next issue of the international, peer-reviewed e-journal. The journal would like to encourage all those interested in the history and practices of popular entertainments to submit a proposal for inclusion in our next issue. The interests of the journal are diverse and wide-ranging and have included such areas as popular entertainments in the context of a mediatised culture, street performances, music theatre, vaudeville, minstrelsy. It has represented the interests of Victorian scholars, including pantomime and the movement of performers and companies around the Empire during the long 19th century.
The journal has now been operating for five years and its contents have now been accepted by the Thomson-Reuters organisation for inclusion in its Arts and Humanities Citation Index and Current Contents/Arts and Humanities. The journal is an open access one and can be viewed for further information at http://www.newcastle.edu.au/journal/popular-entertainment-studies.
Expressions of interest should be forwarded as soon as possible to the General Editor, Victor Emeljanow at Victor-Emeljanow@newcastle.edu.au.
