                   M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture

                          Call for Contributors

The University of Queensland's award-winning journal of media and culture,
M/C, is looking for new contributors. M/C is a crossover journal between
the popular and the academic, and a blind- and peer-reviewed journal.

To see what M/C is all about, check out our Website, which contains all the
issues released so far, at <http://www.media-culture.org.au/>. To find
out how and in what format to contribute your work, visit
<http://www.media-culture.org.au/contribute.html>. We're also welcoming
submissions to our sister publication M/C Reviews, an ongoing series of
reviews of events in culture and the media. M/C Reviews is available at

We are now accepting submissions for the following issue:

                 'urban' - article deadline: 11 March 2002
                issue editors: Liz Ferrier & Laurie Johnson

The increasingly urbanised nature of Western society raises a number of
questions. What is the social significance of increasingly large
collections of houses? Are we more or less secure in an urban environment?
How has urbanity changed over the centuries? Indeed, given that "urbanity"
indicates both urban life and a suave manner, are these concepts related or
is it merely semantic coincidence? How does behaviour and urban environment
interact? As these issues feed off one another, other questions arise. For
the 'urban' issue of M/C, editors invite pieces relating to the town or
city. These interventions may take any form, and may address any
manifestation of urbanity: the city in novels, in films or in television,
urban spaces in art, or art's space in the urban environment, urban
dwellers or urban landscapes, rebuilding or reclaiming, political or social
urban manifestations.

                   issue release date: 10 April 2002
