M/C Media and Culture was founded in 1998 as a place of public intellectualism, analysing and critiquing the meeting of media and culture. Our publications and other activities serve as a point of crossover between the popular and the academic we take seriously the need to move ideas outward, so that our debates may have some resonance with wider political and cultural interests.
Its first publication was M/C Journal, which was initiated and developed (as "M/C A Journal of Media and Culture") at the Media and Cultural Studies Centre at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia in 1998 by MCSC Director P. David Marshall and a group of postgraduate students. Launched in July 1998, M/C Journal was followed in September of the same year by M/C Reviews.
Since mid-2004, M/C is published with the support of the Creative Industries Faculty at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. In November 2004, it launched its third publication, the M/Cyclopedia of New Media.
