The American Journal of Cultural Sociology (AJCS) provides a common forum for the many voices engaged in meaning-centered social inquiry. The journal reflects and advances the broadly cultural sensibility which has spread into every arena of sociological study, illuminating how struggles over meaning affect the most disparate processes of contemporary social life.
AJCS welcomes high quality submissions of varied length and focus: contemporary and historical studies, macro and micro, institutional and symbolic, ethnographic and statistical, philosophical and methodological. Contemporary cultural sociology has developed from European and American roots, and today is an international field. AJCS will publish rigorous, meaning-centered sociology whatever its origins and focus.
