About Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture

Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture (WPCC) engages international scholars in a critical debate about the relationship between communication, culture and society in the 21st century.

WPCC is a peer-reviewed, open access journal, published online. The interdisciplinary nature of the field of Media and Cultural Studies is reflected in the diverse methods, contexts and themes of the papers published. Areas of interest include – but are not limited to – the history and political economy of the media, popular culture, media users and producers, political communication and developments arising from digital technologies in the context of an increasingly globalized and networked world.

Contributions from both established scholars and those at the beginning of their academic career are equally welcome.
