• Colloquy is a biannual online journal publishing articles and reviews by current Monash University postgraduates, recent doctoral graduates and post-doctoral fellows in literary and cultural studies and related interdisciplinary fields.

    All work is double-blind refereed by academic experts working in appropriate fields for assessment, which ensures the originality and currency of the journal and to maintain a high standard of critical writing.


    Our journal aims to:

    • give postgraduates a forum for debate,
    • contribute to an engaged and active postgraduate culture,
    • inform the literary community of the current interests of postgraduate students, and
    • offer postgraduates the opportunity to circulate new work.


    Colloquy began its life as a printed journal in 1996. Today, Colloquy is produced as a free, downloadable online journal in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. If you require the journal in an alternative format for accessibility purposes, please contact the Colloquy editors.


    Colloquy is run by postgraduate students in the Literary and Cultural Studies Graduate Research Program, Monash University.
