Those interested in visual culture may appreciate Imaginations: Journal of Cross-Cultural Image Studies. Founded in 2010 at the University of Alberta, Imaginations is a peer-reviewed journal whose mission is to "bridge communities of artistic visual practice and academic scholarship [and to] create a knowledge democracy venue for the image." Each issue of Imaginations is centered around a theme. The most recent issue focused on "Marshall McLuhan and the Arts," while an upcoming issue theme is "The Mise-en-scene of a Decade: Visualizing the 70s." Authors are encouraged to include high-quality digital media as part of their articles. Under "elicitations," readers will find the reviews portion of this journal, which is published on a rolling basis and offers thoughts on art exhibits, books, and "social and political movements of interest to the visual cultural studies community." Imaginations is published twice yearly in both English and French and its editor-in-chief is Markus Reisenleitner, Professor of Humanities at York University in Toronto.
