Reviews in Cultural Theory is a journal of book reviews that responds to new developments in the theorization of culture. Published online bi-weekly and collected into issues three times a year, Reviews in Cultural Theory seeks to provide a forum to foreground both new work in this field and the emergent community of scholars who share an interest in the complex and changing problematic of culture today.
Focusing on the wide distribution of short and timely reviews and review essays, the journal aims to remain responsive to the dynamism and pace of this field. The journal’s first three issues chart the contemporary shape of cultural theory as it touches on Visual Culture, Gender Studies, Geography, Queer Theory, Marxism, Anthropology, Critical Race Theory, Postcolonial Studies, Cultural History, and Sound Studies, among other fields and subjects, established and emerging. We welcome suggestions of new work for review.

Rupkatha Journal features peer-reviewed articles and book reviews on interdisciplinary cross-currents in the humanities. This is the first Indian Open Access Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies addressing the need for novel approaches to literature and arts. The Journal derives its name from 'rup' (form) and 'katha' (words), which, when combined, mean 'myth' in Bengali. The journal gets its inspiration from the etymology and goes by the principle that anything which has a form, visual or mental, can come under focus.
We have selected Interdisciplinary Studies because we think it "is the need of the hour". "The fundamental idea for interdisciplinarity derives" as our Chief Editor Explains, "from an evolutionary necessity; namely the need to confront and interpret complex systems. To put it simply this means that [a] the entities that we investigate within the environment of contemporary science are perceived to be more like organic or inter-related complexes. The entity that is studied [say like one from logistics, or psychiatry, or dietary cuisine, for examples] can no longer be analyzed in terms of an object of 'biology' or 'chemistry', but as a contending hierarchy of components which could be studied under the rubric of multiple or variable branches of knowledge."
We have firm conviction in Open Access Philosophy and strongly support the Open Access Initiatives. In conformity with this, the content of publications will be primarily guided by the open nature of knowledge, and the journal is free to access from any corner of the world.
