Transgressive Culture (ISSN 2043-7102 print; ISSN 2043-7110 online) is a new international journal. It concerns the limits – in all of their guises – and what lies beyond them. The journal aims include: (1) questioning the meaning and significance of transgressive culture; (2) understanding more deeply how this reflects on contemporary culture; and (3) offering an opportunity for transgressive culture to be more widely known through analysis of existing work and through generating new creative work.
University of Derby, UK
Aims and scope
The journal seeks to examine the boundaries of culture, both critically and creatively. Analysis of culture in all forms, including literature, art, film, media, and music, is welcome, with a focus primarily on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and the transnational. In terms of creative work, poetry, prose, screenwriting and writing for performance, non-fiction and, of course, work that transcends these boundaries is encouraged.
Work needs to be informed by the ideas of key influential theorists of transgression, but this is not prescriptive. We encourage all writing that challenges norms and subverts expectations. Please send a 300-word outline of your work via email to Jason Lee firstname.lastname@example.org
