>Subject Matters: A Journal of Communications and the Self is a new,
>refereed, bi-annual publication launched in 2004 by members of the
>Communications and Subjectivity research group at London Metropolitan
>University. It seeks to explore current thinking about subjectivity, to
>cross disciplinary boundaries and to challenge critical orthodoxy in the
>process. It is dedicated to debate on the nature of the subject and its
>various characterisations, especially in modernity. The journal seeks to
>go beyond the restrictions of poststructuralist/postmodernist paradigms
>and to avoid the cliques and the clichÈs that poststructuralism has
>naturalized. As such, it seeks to invite papers from researchers in
>different disciplines, particularly where the relationships between
>"communications" and "subjectivity" are seen to exceed the boundaries that
>current critical predilections have set for them.
>
>The editors are especially interested in contributions concerned with the
>ways in which the concept of the subject as it has been defined in recent
>years can be put into question and even decentred. Although the editors
>hail mainly from Communications, Media and Cultural studies, the impetus
>of the journal is to question the dominant discourse on the subject in the
>Anglo-American paradigm of these disciplines. The spirit of auto-criticism
>in this journal problematizes the enforcement by Communications, Media and
>Cultural Studies of its own regime of knowledge and its own constructed
>canon of authorised texts, in which there are gaps, silences and
>marginalization of voices with important contributions to make to the
>subjectivity debate.
>
>Contributions which engage with the legacy of high theory but bring theory
>into contact with everyday life will also be welcome. Papers which impinge
>on communications and cultural theory but which are not necessarily
>describable as emanating from that tradition -- from the sciences or
>elsewhere in the humanities -- will be considered. Papers dealing with
>historical formations of subjectivity will also be welcome if they
>contribute to contemporary debates.
