Moment Journal is a peer-reviewed, open-access, electronic journal which has been published biannually in December and June by the Faculty of Communication, Hacettepe University. The Journal, which has been published since 2014, aims at making contribution to the broad field of cultural studies with genuine academic works that promise new questions and strong theoretical perspectives on national and international level by featuring articles both in Turkish and English. As an interdisciplinary journal, Moment includes critical studies and discussions in all areas of humanities and social sciences. Moment Journal regards, not only readers with academic interests in social sciences and humanities but also all the readers who have this interest and curiosity, as its audience. Inspired by Gramsci’s concept of “moment”, Moment Journal’s aim is to quest for praxis possibilities for a critical reading of social phenomenons.
