The Journal of Popular Culture is looking for those who are interested in reviewing books. These reviews would be due on January 31, 2023.  If you have a completed Master's degree or higher, one of these books is in your field of study, and you are interested in writing a review for us, please contact me at, noting your preferred title and your mailing address. Please also send a short explanation to state what makes you a good reviewer of the book (or you may send me your CV). The reviews need to be between 500 and 1,000 words and documented in MLA style. Because of the current COVID-19 situation, physical books may only be sent to an address in the U.S. International reviewers will receive an e-copy of the book.

Thank you.
