                          CALL FOR PAPERS
 
                JOURNAL OF COMMUNICATION INQUIRY
 
The _Journal_of_Communication_Inquiry_ is currently seeking manuscripts
that emphasize interdisciplinary inquiry into communication and mass
communication phenomena within cultural and historical perspectives.
Such perspectives imply that an understanding of these phenomena cannot
arise solely out of a narrowly focused analysis.  Thus, manuscripts
should emphasize philosophical, evaluative, empirical, legal, historical,
and/or critical inquiry into relationships between mass communication
and society across time and culture.
 
The journal also invites contributions of articles, book reviews and
review articles from all scholars.
 
Submission deadline:  November 1, 1991  (see details below)

                 JOURNAL OF COMMUNICATION INQUIRY
 
       Cultural Materialism:  Essays on Culture as a Practice
 
This theme issue of the journal will address communication found in
newspapers, advertisements, novels, visual arts, music, etc., as cultural
practices--recorded communication of a particular place and time, rather
than as individual decontextualized artifacts.
 
Papers submitted for this issue should include a consideration of the
overt and covert relations between cultural practices, and the political,
social, ideological, and economic system in which they exist.
 
Submission deadline:  January 15, 1992  (see details below)
 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Submit three copies of your paper to the address below.  Maximum length

appear on the first page.  Other than on the first page, the author's
name should not appear anywhere in the manuscript.
 
The journal style is outlined in "Parenthetical References and
Reference Lists," in Kate L. Turabian, _A_Manual_for_Writers_, 5th ed.

for explanatory purposes only) should be held to a minimum.  Similar
