Penumbra: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Critical and Creative Inquiry
enumbra: 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. We have instituted a rolling submission policy; however, to be considered for the seventh volume please submit by February 15th, 2020. The next publication date is June 2020.
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 education, humanities, public policy, and leadership.
Penumbra invites scholarship of all kinds, creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and visual 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.
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.
