This comes from Gary Hoppenstand, editor of the Journal of Popular Culture.
We are delighted to announce that The Journal of Popular Culture is reintroducing its Book Review section and are equally delighted that Dr. Tricia Jenkins, professor of Film, Television and Digital Media at Texas Christian University, has agreed to be our new Book Review Editor.
We are seeking reviewers to review books on any aspect of U.S. or international popular culture.
Reviews should adhere to the ethos of The Journal of Popular Culture and be largely positive with any criticism of the book or author being constructive in nature.
Reviews should be roughly 1,000 words and should be typed, double-spaced with 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Research and documentation must adhere to The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers and The MLA Style Manual, which require a Works Cited list, with parenthetical author/page references in the text. Punctuation, capitalization, hyphenation, and other matters of style, must also follow The MLA Handbook and The MLA Style Manual.
If you are interested in writing a review for the Journal of Popular Culture or if you are an author or publisher with a book you would like to have reviewed, then please contact Dr. Jenkins at the following address or by email:
Tricia Jenkins, Book Review Editor
Department of Film, Television and Digital Media

Book reviews should be sent electronically to both the review and the reviewer’s complete contact information (name, university affiliation, address and email). Preferably, the review will be sent as formatted text copied into the email itself, but Microsoft Word files will be accepted as attachments.
