About the Journal

REDEN (Revista Española de Estudios Norteamericanos, ISSN: 2695-4168) is an open access interdisciplinary, academic, double blind peer-reviewed journal. In 2021 it was relaunched focusing on the study of the US popular culture manifestations and the representations of the United States in popular culture.

The journal accepts both regular and special dossier submissions. Deadlines are: April 15 (for the November issue), October 15 (for the May issue).

REDEN welcomes research papers written in English from any academic perspective and field, encouraging multidisciplinary and intersectional analysis of popular culture texts and multimodal cultural expressions—as well as their publics and reception—conveyed by means such as film, comics and graphic novels, TV and web series, videogames, new media, music, genre fiction, and so forth. 

The journal is based at the Instituto Franklin–UAH (published by the Publishing Service of the Universidad de Alcalá) and promoted by the PopMeC Association for US Popular Culture Studies, with the aim of fostering academic research in the fields of  American and Popular Culture studies.


Deadline extended: Call for articles vol 4 no 2 (spring 2023) | STEM in US Popular Culture


The deadline is extended to December 1, 2022.

This special thematic dossier aims to offer different explorations and analyses of the ways in which US popular culture texts can offer both positive and negative representations of the STEM fields in connection to gender. We are looking for intersectional approaches that go beyond ‘white feminism’ and beyond a limited understanding of gender, paying attention to gender-nonconforming individuals, class-related issues, neurodivergence, and any instances of othered bodies in fictional and non-fictional popular culture from the United States.
