About the journal

For the past thirty years, Qui Parle has published outstanding theoretical and critical work in the humanities and social sciences. Run by an independent group of graduate students since its founding at the University of California, Berkeley, the journal aims to start critical conversations and introduce new analytic modes by bringing together diverse scholarly and artistic voices. Contributors challenge disciplinary boundaries and engage with theoretical debates whose import stretches within and beyond the academy. Qui Parle also regularly curates special issues and dossiers organized around burgeoning intellectual topics and theoretical problems whose implications span the humanities and social sciences and reflect the varied interests of the editorial board.

The journal is published twice annually, in June and December.
