18,767 New Deadline for Articles and Reviews for NExJ 3(1) aka Issue #4 & An Out Reach Campaign and Initiative: Developing a Subscriber List

Dear Explorers  – 2 announcements
1. I have extended the deadline for Articles and Reviews for NExJ 3(1) aka Issue #4.
The new deadline is March 15, 2022

Papers that have already been accepted for publication in Issue #4 are available in the preprint section  of our blog at https://newexplorations.net/category/preprints/.

So, the delay in the release of Issue #4 will not slow down your access to articles accepted for publication for Issue #4.2. An Out Reach Initiative: Developing a Subscriber ListI would like to develop a subscribers’ list for our journal. So far the main readers of NExJ have been the community of the NExJ Editorial Board and members of the MEA list serve as we have announced each new issue of NExJ with the MEA list. Could you share the following announcement with your circle of email contacts in academe and your students and send me a list of those that respond to your invitation.I will send this announcement to the MEA listserv. Please let me know if you are willing to engage in this campaign so I have an idea of what to expect in terms of new subscribers.

Please email this invitation to your contacts:

As a member of the Editorial Board of the journal New Explorations: Studies in Culture and Communication (NExJ)a revival of the Carpenter McLuhan journal Explorations: Studies in Culture and Communication that ran from 1957 to 1972, I invite you to check out our journal and consider submitting an article or a review. Our journal and its first 3 issues dating back to 2020 can be accessed at https://jps.library.utoronto.ca/index.php/nexj/index.We also have a blog associated with our journal at that can be access at newexplorations.net. You will find at our blog a preprint section in which the articles that have been accepted for publication in our next issue (Issue # 4) are available. The blog contains interesting articles about McLuhan and Carpenter, poetry, essays, and community notes. The 23 Issues of the original Carpenter McLuhan journal Explorations are available online at https://newexplorations.net/about/the-23-issues-of-explorations-available-online/. This is a valuable resource for McLuhan scholars and media ecologists.
If you are interested in our journal NExJ please sent me an email and/or to our editor Bob Logan (logan@physics.utoronto.ca) and we will put you on our mailing/subscriber list. And if you wish to submit an article or review for publication in our peer reviewed journal please sent it to Bob Logan at logan@physics.utoronto.ca and he will have it peer reviewed.

 Here for your information is the NExJ Mission Statement

The New Explorations: Studies in Culture and Communication journal project is inspired by the original journal Explorations: Studies in Culture and Communication. The first eight issues of Explorations were published between 1953 and 1957 at the University of Toronto and edited by Edmund Carpenter and Marshall McLuhan. A ninth issue was published in 1959 and was edited by Edmund Carpenter alone. Marshall McLuhan then edited issues 10 to 32 between 1964 and 1972 that appeared as inserts in the alumni magazines of the University of Toronto, with issues number 10 through19 appearing in the Varsity Graduate magazine and issues 20 through 32 appearing in the University of Toronto Graduate magazine.  

We hope to recapture the spirit of the original Explorations journal that had such an important influence in the development of the Toronto School of Communication. Just as the founders of Explorations were focused on the new electric technologies of their times, primarily television and mainframe computers, our focus is on the new and emerging technologies of our times.

Our approach to these studies is that of media ecology as developed by Harold Innis, Marshall McLuhan, Ted Carpenter, Walter Ong, Neil Postman and a host of other media ecologists and communication theorists, but need not be limited to that. While we honour the past, we need not dwell there. We invite contributors to this journal to break new ground, to probe and wrestle with pressing concerns, to generate, amplify and provoke. We will study the impact of current media and make use of multimedia technologies to organize the activities of our open access online journal and project, as described below.

Our mission parallels that of the original Explorations. The first paragraph of our mission statement is identical to that of the original Explorations, but the second paragraph takes into account the multimedia environment in which we now live. New Explorations, like the original Explorations, is designed:

…not as a permanent reference journal that embalms truth for posterity, but as a publication that explores and searches and questions. We envision a series that will cut across the humanities and social sciences by treating them as a continuum. We believe anthropology and communications are approaches, not bodies of data, and that within each of the four winds of the humanities, the physical, the biological and the social sciences intermingle to form a ‘science of man’ (Ted Carpenter and Marshall McLuhan. 1953. Explorations: Studies in Culture and Communication 1, iii) or, more currently, a ‘science of human nature’. Here is the list of Editorial Board members
