Material Culture Review Seeks New Editor and Host Institution

Material Culture Review /Revue de la culture matérielle (MCR/RCM), Canada's only scholarly journal dedicated to the study of material culture, is currently seeking a new Editor-in-Chief and host institution.


The journal seeks a new Editor-in-Chief and host institution who will be committed to furthering the publication as a forum for the exchange of current research and methodologies in the field of material culture studies, and who will work to maintain the journal as an outlet for the important research and community initiatives that public sector institutions, like museums and galleries, engage in.


The journal is published twice yearly (Spring and Fall) and provides a venue for refereed articles and research reports encompassing a range of approaches to interpreting culture and history through an analysis of people's relationships to their material world. MCR/RCM solicits and publishes in Canada’s two official languages. In addition to peer-reviewed articles and research reports, MCR/RCM publishes other scholarly work including research notes, exhibition and historic site reviews, book reviews, and book review essays. The journal has an established list of subscribers and subscription revenue, as well as dedicated editorial team members who can remain with the journal. MCR/RCM is also eligible to apply for SSHRC's Aid to Scholarly Journal funding competition, and has been successful in previous applications.


MCR/RCM uses the OJS/PKP management system and publishing platform, administered through the University of New Brunswick Library's Centre for Digital Scholarship. The journal is also hosted on Erudit, and is well indexed.


If you see a strong fit between the publication interests of MCR/RCM and your own areas of research specialty and scholarly engagement, and have made major journal or book publications in material culture studies, you are invited to contact Dr. Richard MacKinnon, Editor-in-Chief, at for further details.
