The aim of Culture Machine is to seek out and promote the most provocative of new work, and analyses of that work, in culture and theory from a diverse range of international authors. Culture Machine is particularly concerned to promote research engaged in the constitution of new areas of inquiry and the opening of new frontiers of cultural and theoretical activity. It is also committed to the generation of possibilities for new scholarship and research. Other than these founding aims (which are themselves, along with the very concepts of 'founding' and of 'aims', possible themes to be analysed), Culture Machine has no specific agenda, no project or programme - cultural, theoretical, political, social or ethical - it intends to see worked out in its various manifestations. Culture Machine is instead endeavouring to be to cultural studies and cultural theory what 'fundamental research' is to the natural sciences: open ended, non-goal orientated, exploratory and experimental in approach.
