Tilburg Papers in Culture Studies

Babylon logo Tilburg Papers in Culture Studies (groot)

TPCS is intended to be a genuine ‘working papers’ series. That means that work-in-progress is invited, that papers do not yet require the level of elaboration usually demanded of journal-publishable papers, that good MA dissertations can also be included, and so on. The series is not copyrighted and does not carry an ISSN number, so that publication in TPCS does not preclude publication of more elaborated versions of the same paper in journals.

Please submit your paper to TPCS@tilburguniversity.edu.
