This issue of Junctions is a collaboration with Utrecht University’s Humanities Graduate Conference, entitled “What’s the Point? Impact and the Future of the Humanities. ” We welcome papers and book reviews, inviting authors to engage with the question of ‘value.’ This includes, but is not limited to, exploring different ways in which the humanities can contribute to science and society, and engaging with meta questions on the necessity of value and valorisation, asking if evaluating knowledge production is possible and if so, what standards should be used to assess it. We also welcome submissions engaging with current societal crises in which authors reflect thoughtfully and explicitly on the impact of their own research. All junior scholars can submit, not only conference participants.Check out the full call for papers here (deadline 5th May) and for Book Reviews here (deadline 1st June)!

On January 23, we celebrate the launch of our new website via Ubiquity Press. With this transfer, we will be able to offer sustainable archiving, protected author and reviewer portals, and professional publication according to the current academic norms and standards. With this, we are one of the first humanities graduate journals in the Netherlands to offer these services.
We will present the new website on January 23rd in Utrecht, followed by celebratory drinks with our current and past editors, authors, advisors and reviewers. If you'd like to join, please email us at junctionsjournal[at]gmail.com.
