Open Access Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society that specialises in publishing articles about critical studies of capitalism and communication. We welcome the submission of articles that fit the journal’s scope. tripleC operates a news list disseminating infos about new articles, calls for papers, conferences, events, and other journal-specific information.

I publish the tripleC podcast Communication, Capitalism & Critique that you can find here, on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube. I also publish the Critical Theory Rocks podcast on Spotify that features critical theory and music (see also here). It is the podcast where critical theory rocks society and rock music becomes a tool of social critique.
