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 December 2017: issue 34.

Colloquy is presently seeking unsolicited submissions for general issue 35, which will be published in Summer 2018.

All submissions for this issue are due by 16 July 2018, although submissions for general consideration can be made at any time.

A combined call for submissions is also available for a special issue on ethics in utopia, dystopia and science fiction (issue 36) and an edited collection on similar themes – download here.

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.

(Un)Ethical Futures: Utopia, Dystopia and Science Fiction

(Un)Ethical Futures was a three-day interdisciplinary conference exploring the ethical concerns of utopia, dystopia and science fiction held in Melbourne, Australia on 15–17 December 2017. The conference was a collaboration between Monash University, the University of Warwick, and Colloquy: Text, Theory, Critique.

A call for submissions is now available for a special issue of Colloquy (issue 36), which will publish peer-reviewed articles, as well as creative writing and book reviews, arising from the conference themes.
