Critical Arts - A Journal of South-North Cultural and Media Studies

University of KwaZulu-Natal

Critical Arts, the Journal of South-North Cultural and Media Studies, recently published its Special Issue: Cultural Economy, edited by Sonja Narunsky-Laden. The theme issue includes articles on cultural economy in post-transitional South Africa, cultural economy in the information age, post-apartheid television drama, Afropolitan aesthetics in contemporary South African fashion design, and academic managerialism.

Critical Arts is a non-profit project owned and produced by an independent group of academics who comprise its editors, associate editors, editorial consultants and regional organizers. The journal is currently located in the Centre for Cultural and Media Studies, University of Natal, Durban, where its editor-in-chief, Prof. Keyan Tomaselli, is director. The journal's editorial consultants and editorial associates are presently drawn from South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe in Africa, and scholars in Scandinavia, England, USA, Canada and Australia. The first issue was published in 1980.

Critical Arts is a truly international journal - an international authorship, an international editorial board and international readership. It regularly receives submissions from the rest of Africa (eg. Nigeria, Lesotho, Malawi, Ghana, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, Ivory Coast etc), as well as from India, Australia, USA, UK, Belgium, France and Ireland. Theme issue editors have been appointed from South Africa, Namibia, USA, UK and Australia.
