About the Journal of Cultural Economy

The Journal of Cultural Economy is concerned with the role played by various forms of material cultural practice in the organisation of the economy and the social, and of the relations between them. As such it is a unique interdisciplinary forum for work on these questions from across the social sciences and humanities.
