Penumbra: An Interdisciplinary Journal : Seeking Submissions


Penumbra: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Critical and Creative Inquiry, a peer-reviewed, online journal of Union Institute & University’s Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies program, is seeking submissions for its next issue. Please submit by January 15, 2016.

Penumbra aims to promote social change through theoretically informed engagements with concrete issues and problems. We publish socially engaged, innovative, creative, and critical scholarship, with a focus on ethical, political, and aesthetic issues in the humanities, public policy, and leadership. We invite scholarship of all kind, creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and visual work. We seek submissions from graduate students, junior scholars, and emerging artists, in addition to more established critical and creative voices. All submissions undergo double-blind peer review. We do not accept previously published work. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but the editors should be notified immediately upon a work’s acceptance for publication elsewhere.
