On_Culture wird von Doktorand*innen, Postdocs und Professor*innen des International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture an der Universität Gießen herausgegeben. Die Konzeption geht über die einer klassischen wissenschaftlichen Zeitschrift hinaus:
It provides a platform and forum for pursuing and reflecting on the study of culture. It investigates, problematizes and develops key concepts and methods in the field. More often than not, developing such new approaches and emerging topics is a collaborative and collective process. On_Culture is dedicated to fostering such collective processes and the cultural dynamics at work in thinking about and reflecting on culture.
The journal consists of three sections: academic _Articles (double-blind peer review), _Essays and _Perspectives such as video clips, interviews and visual statements, which can be submitted on a rolling basis. On_Culture is the result of collaborative processes and emergent structures in the field of e-publishing. On_Culture puts new approaches and emerging topics in the (trans)national study of culture ‘on the line’ and, in so doing, fills the gap____ between ‘on’ and ‘culture’. There are numerous ways of filling the gap, and the plurality of approaches is something for which we strive with each new issue.
The journal offers numerous opportunities to contribute: calls for abstracts released biannually seek contributors of peer-reviewed academic _Articles and (review) _Essays, while ideas for our shorter _Perspectives (textual, visual, graphic…you name it!) pertaining to any and all issue topics are welcome at any time.
