Penumbra: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Critical and Creative Inquiry

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 currently seeking and reviewing submissions for its inaugural issue. Penumbra invites academic papers as well as creative and critical works that address any aspect of the journal's mission and scope. 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.

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.
