This editorial introduces both JOMEC Journal itself and also the specific concerns of this first issue, reconnecting political disconnection. It first situates the journal in the context of the (potential, if not always actual) nexus of journalism studies, media studies and cultural studies, arguing that although this group of fields are often thought to be closely connected, in many respects they operate as distinct disciplines, at a distance from each other. Outlining the complexity and pitfalls of disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity, the editorial argues that JOMEC Journal seeks to be a place in which researchers in each of the fields of journalism, media and cultural studies might encounter the work, thought and interventions of the others. It proposes that the potential significance of this kind of (contingent) connection is not unrelated to the question of politics itself, the theme that animates the articles juxtaposed within this issue.
