Journals of the Latvian Academy of Culture

 

The Latvian Academy of Culture (LAC) publishes two scholarly journals:

  • For themes of international relevance and scope the LAC publishes the scholarly journal Culture Crossroads    
  • For issues of local relevance and scope the LAC publishes the scholarly journal Krustpunkti: Kultūras un mākslas pētījumi

The goal of the scholarly journals published by the Institute of Arts and Cultural Studies of the Latvian Academy of Culture is to develop and expand theoretical and methodological approaches to the research of culture, art and creativity with an emphasis on the potential of the diversity of disciplines and interdisciplinarity. 

The focus of the journals is on the interaction of cultural, artistic and creative processes as well as their synergy with other domains of national economy, politics and social life. The journals target the most topical issues and discussion points in cultural studies and arts.

The journals are open to interdisciplinary cultural studies research in the fields of ethnology, theory of culture, semiotics, cultural anthropology, museology, cultural heritage, management of culture, sociology of culture and art, cultural economics (including creative industries), cultural politics, audio-visual art, performing arts, dance, theory of literature, musicology, law, linguistics, and other domains of cultural studies and arts.
