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.

Colloquy is presently seeking unsolicited submissions for 2019 general issues. Please see our submissions page for details.

The latest issue of Colloquy was published in December 2017: issue 34.

A special double issue of Colloquy on utopia, dystopia and science fiction (issue 35/36), edited by a team of postgraduate students from Monash University and the University of Warwick, will be published in December 2018.

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.
