Publications produced by the College of Arts and Sciences:
Founded at the University of Oregon in 1949, Comparative Literature explores issues in literary history and theory. The quarterly publication represents a wide-ranging look at the intersections of national literatures, global literary trends, and cultural theory. Drawing on a variety of critical approaches, the journal prides itself on publishing the work of talented young scholars breaking new ground in the field.
Critical Sociology is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes the highest quality original research. For over three decades Critical Sociology has been a leading voice of sociological analysis from a political economy perspective. This journal is a must for sociologists and anyone else seeking to understand the most pressing issues of the day as they are informed by race, class and gender.
Environmental Philosophy is the official journal of the International Association for Environmental Philosophy (IAEP), founded in 1997 to provide a forum for wide-ranging philosophical discussion of nature and the human relation to the natural environment. The journal publishes articles in all areas of environmental theory, including ethics, aesthetics, metaphysics, theology, politics, ecofeminism, environmental justice, philosophy of technology, and eco-phenomenology.
Humanist Studies & the Digital Age
This peer-reviewed e-journal is devoted to the reformulation of received philological and philosophical ideas of writing and reading literary works, motivated by the advent of electronic texts. The journal encourages new theoretical engagements based on comparative media studies, translations and interdisciplinary approaches to a new humanist philology, and a new humanist philosophy, made possible by digital technology. While the Editorial Board considers studies on Petrarch and the humanist age in all its manifestations and the Oregon Petrarch Open Book the seminal topics of discussion of HUMANIST STUDIES & THE DIGITAL AGE, we also encourage submissions that investigate more generally the interface of philological, interpretative, and digital inquiry.
Our interests include the theoretical and historical, practical and speculative, aesthetic, political, and methodological borders, among others. “Konturen” is a German word that derives from the French tour, tourner, terms that bespeak a turning, such as the turning of a French word into a German one (or the reverse). We publish innovative work that takes into account the contributions of recent philosophy and theory to an understanding of problematic discursive places of meeting, overlap, or disjunction. Konturen currently publishes one Special Issue annually, constituted through invited submissions and calls for papers.
Periphērica focuses on the liminal spaces of cultural production. We seek to publish articles in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, that deal with the intersection of society, culture, and literature in Latino-América, the Iberian peninsula, and Lusophone and Hispanophone areas of Africa and Asia.
Puncta: Journal Of Critical Phenomenology
Puncta is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal of philosophy. The critical turn in phenomenology suggests that phenomenology is not merely a descriptive method or practice, but a mode of critique understood as an ongoing process of revealing and interrogating the concrete conditions, institutions, and assumptions that structure lived experience. We invite submissions that engage the critical turn of phenomenology in any dimension: through analyses of social and political phenomena, reflections on the limits and challenges of phenomenological inquiry, or by attending to the history of philosophy, either through its silences or its canonical figures.
Resilience: A Journal of the Environmental Humanities
Resilience is a digital, peer-reviewed journal of the Environmental Humanities. It provides a forum for scholars from across humanities disciplines to speak to one another about their shared interest in environmental issues, and to plot out an evolving conversation about what the humanities contributes to living and thinking sustainably in a world of dwindling resources.
