Mediating Football’s World Cup

An M/C Reviews “Screens” feature

To mark the new look interactive design of
M/C: a Journal of Media and Culture’s  review
section, M/C Reviews, we would like to invite
contributions in the form of media and cultural
studies interventions on football’s World Cup.

We will publish a collection of short
critiques, reviews or thought-pieces (each
submission should be 1000 words or less) that
respond to The World Cup and representations of
this event.

Possible topics include (but should not be
limited to):

-       global events: “The World Game”
-       World Cup broadcasts/broadcasting
rights/ free to air
-       presences and absences
-       media coverage, talk-back
-       interactivity, fansites, message
boards, “fantasy football”
-       nationalism, eurocentrism
-       Korea and Japan
-       football, pop culture and celebrity
-       masculinities
-       the commodification of sport
-       notions of “fair play”, supremacy,

The deadline for submissions is 12th July 2002
however the aim is that this will be an on-
going feature and that articles will be
published in stages -- prior, during and
following the World Cup. Consequently, early
submissions are encouraged. Articles should be
no longer than 1000 words (submissions
exceeding this length will not be considered).
All articles will be subject to a blind peer
review process. Please submit your articles for
consideration directly online at or send
completed submissions and any enquiries via e-
mail to Kate Douglas or Kelly McWilliam at
