Happy International Open Access Week 2016!

To kick off Open Access Week 2016, we are very excited to announce that in keeping with this year’s theme of taking action to open up research and scholarship, we will be making the Journal of Religion and Popular Culture fully open access for the entire week!


 
The Journal of Religion and Popular Culture is a web-based, peer-reviewed journal committed to the academic exploration, analysis and interpretation, from a range of disciplinary perspectives, of the interrelations and interactions between religion and religious expression and popular culture, broadly defined as the products of contemporary mass culture. The journal is based in Canada but is international in scope, and open to explorations of religion and popular culture in a variety of nationalities and cultures.

In our most recently published issue of JRPC, you can find some great articles on how religion plays into such pop culture phenomena as Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and Mad Men.

JRPC is available online here!

International Open Access Week 2016 takes place from October 24–30. For more information, please visit http://www.openaccessweek.org/

Happy Reading!
