So get used to the duplicity of what we know to be true: modernity’s‘nightmare’ is now global ‘reality’. What stands between us is narrative. Cultural studies is poised in that not-so-innocent space between representation and reality, Gothic horror and real nightmare, part velina handing out stories, part maiden projecting reason’s fears and desires. We’re in the story but also standing outside the frame. This then is the continuing ‘cover narrative’ of the IJCS. It offers a good analytical perspective from which to face what we cannot give up.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
