Journal of Media Studies
The new Journal of Media Studies proposes to create space for sharing original research papers written on Indian media including cinema, advertisements, television, public service media and new media in the internet. Prority would be accorded to papers written to analyze, explore, and present experimentation to curve out spaces for the cultures of fragile and marginal communities. The relationship between the media and its influence on public spheres is one of the research areas that is close to the other researches carried out by National Folklore Support Centre.
We plan to launch the first issue of Journal of Media Studies by June 2011.
Contributors are requested to register and submit their articles at http://indianfolklore.org/journals/index.php/Media
Journal of Tribal Studies
Our new Journal of Tribal Studies seeks to offer a forum for presenting original research articles written on the India tribal cultures and expressive behaviour. There is great need to present and share research on tribal languages of India many of which are threatened and are on the verge of extinction. Dedicating a journal to the tribal studies would focus scholarly attention on the oral literature of the tribal languages and renew interest in lexicon projects, and educational endeavours that concentrate on multilingual education.
We plan to publish the first issue of Journal of Tribal Studies online in June 2011
We are at present engaged in establishing the editorial board and getting the consent of scholars to do the peer review for the articles received. Scholars interested in serving on the editorial board are welcome to write to me Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
