Welcome to Colloquy: text, theory, critique

Colloquy is an open access journal published twice annually by postgraduate students in the Literary and Cultural Studies Graduate Research Program at Monash University. 

We publish articles from across the theoretical humanities, including literary and cultural studies, critical theory, continental philosophy, film and television studies, communication and media studies, and performance studies. We also publish translations, creative writing and book reviews. All work, except for book reviews, is double-blind peer reviewed.

The latest issue of Colloquy was published in May 2017: issue 33.

The editors are currently seeking submissions for issue 34, which will be a general issue published in Spring 2017.

We have an active team of postgraduate editors who are essential to the operation of the journal. We encourage current Monash University postgraduates who are interested in becoming involved to contact the editors in chief.
