Interstitial: A Journal of Modern Culture and Events, is a newly launched and open access journal. It looks like a really interesting development. The already have an lively piece by Stuart Elden and an interview with Elizabeth Grosz. This sort of open access development shows how alternative models if open access publishing can develop – beyond the restrictive notions of green and gold.
This is the description of the journal’s scope:
Interstitial: A Journal of Modern Culture and Events is a peer-reviewed, open access, and post-disciplinary journal dedicated to exploring the myriad expressions, impacts, and genealogies of modernity. We draw no distinction between the merits of pop culture and high culture or minor happenings and seismic evental shifts, and we aim to pluralize fields of inquiry pertaining to questions of the contemporary, privileging no single perspective or site of analysis over any other. Our central question is: How is the event of, or are the events comprising, modernity unfolding for multiple forms of being, and what new forms of knowledge are being produced?
