Abbreviated title (ISO 4)
|Edited by||Eric Klinenberg|
Public Culture is a peer-reviewed academic journal of cultural studies, established in 1988 by anthropologists Carol Breckenridge and Arjun Appadurai and published by Duke University Press. By its own account, the journal seeks to address "the cultural transformations associated with cities, media and consumption, and the cultural flows that draw cities, societies and states into larger transnational relationships and global political economies." Since 2010, its editor-in-chief is Eric Klinenberg (from New York University). Klinenberg started the implementation of an online book review offshoot, Public Books.
The journal has received an award from The Council of Editors of Learned Journals as the Best New Journal in 1992 and the Best Special Issue in 2000. In 2013, the same body named Public Culture co-winner of the Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement, recognizing the journal's revitalization and transformation with a "marked emphasis on accessibility and broader relevance."
The journal has also been reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement.
Public Books is an online journal publishing book reviews, independently edited but affiliated with Public Culture.
