Australian Journal of Cultural Studies
Vol. 3 No. 2, December 1985


THE AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL OF CULTURAL STUDIES aims to provide a platform for research and debate in cultural studies. The Journal's interests embrace the full range of the productions of the culture—accepting the value of analysis of such produced texts as television and film, of 'lived' texts such as sport and recreational activities, and cultural motifs such as the beach and the barbecue. The AJCS will encourage articles dealing with the theory and practice of culture, the reception and creation of texts, and the particular ways in which the Australian culture endows its members with a cultural identity, Australian ideologies and myths. There will be an editorial leaning towards articles with a linguistic, semiotic, or structuralist theoretical base, though this will not be an exclusive condition. The AJCS will not only serve Australian interests but will keep up to date with developments in theory and practice elsewhere; to this end, a regular feature will be the inclusion of a translation of a seminal European article hitherto unavailable in English and of theoretical articles by European and American authorities.
