Welcome everyone, we launched!
After almost a year of meetings and action plans, Junctions: Graduate Journal of the Humanities finally exists. Junctions will publish its first themed issue in September, in affiliation with the Utrecht University Humanities Student Conference. A month ago, the second annual edition of this conference took place on the theme of power structures. A wide range of topic was discussed by speakers, from the linguistics of truth value in the South African Truth and Reconciliation Committee to the dynamics of hacker collectives in society, from the cactus as a symbol of Palestine as well as Israel to the notion of the body politic in medieval political theory.
With this journal, we want to give students a platform to publish their research projects as well as present on them. Next week, we will send out our first Call for Papers, inviting both speakers at the conference and other MA students to send in their papers on the theme of power structures. Our brainstorm on the possibilities of this theme showed there is a very wide variety of topics possible in all fields of the humanities, both overtly political and non-political, on topics in society and in academia itself. Stay tuned for our Call for Papers in your e-mail and on this website.
