The Journal for the Study of British Cultures (JSBC) was launched in 1994 to provide a platform for the study and discussion of any cultural forms relating to Britain via in-depth articles, case studies, and reviews. Despite focusing on the national cultures of the British Isles in particular, the journal is committed to a broadly conceived notion of British culture and cultural diversity that acknowledges Britain’s long history of empire and the formative contact and complex exchanges this brought with Anglophone cultures across the world. The journal therefore critically investigates and counters narrow understandings of the adjective ‘British’. By publishing original, peer-reviewed, and state-of-the-art research in cultural studies and how it interrelates with new approaches in fields such as history, sociology, postcolonial, gender, media, and literary studies, JSBC transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries and offers the opportunity to explore these various fields in theory and practice.
JSBC is the official journal of the German Association for the Study of British Cultures. It is published twice a year in both print and online form.
