Abstract

Open Cultural Studies is the latest venture by De Gruyter Open. This new mega journal, entirely in open access, seeks to become a go-to publishing venue for research in culture. [… ] I want this new project to bring together the questions of subjectivity and power that animate our field, and to do grapple with the difficult intellectual and political issues of our time as well as others. As populism rises in many parts of the world; as cosmopolitanism struggles with resurgent ethno-nationalism; as new military and immigrant crises emerge; and as a massive, new middle class forms even while inequality spreads, understanding how we live together—and struggle together—can enlighten us all.
