A bundle of comments - leading to the journal 'museum and society'
A have bundled these comments together because (a) it is easier to follow threads using the message system, and (b) all members of the Social Sciences group will receive notification of each message. Comments are not broadcast, and are best used for comments about the group page, not for raising new topics.

My PhD is in Social Sciences, using auto-ethnographic methods to explore issues of identity and desire; I have woven Deleuzian theory into interpretations of my own life writing and that of medieval Heian Japanese women. May sound far out, but it works! If you want to know more, let me know. Now, I am trying to publish papers from my thesis, and other writing that blends theory and memoir, but find it very difficult to find appropriate journals. If you have any interest in this area, do write to me!
thank you, Peter, for opening this discussion group!

Hi fellow SocScis
I thought a number of you may be interested in my response to Christina Houen.The School of Museum Studies at TheUniversity of Leicester hosts an online journal, which may be an interetsing place for publication. Do check the link if you are interested ( http://www.le.ac.uk/ms/mands/mands.html ).
All the best

This looks an interesting journal, thank you Viv. I've passed on the info to a couple of friends who work in cultural heritage and museology.
The link to the social science paper seeking readers/reviewers doesn't work.
