The International Journal of the Humanities aims to create an intellectual frame of reference, and to support an interdisciplinary conversation that builds on the past traditions of the humanities whilst setting a renewed agenda for their future. 

The journal is part of the New Directions in the Humanities Journal Collection. This collection is brought together by a common interest in established traditions in the humanities while at the same time developing innovative practices and setting a renewed agenda for their future. We seek to build an epistemic community to make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. The journal collection is defined by our Research Network scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

The International Journal of the Humanities is a Hybrid Open Access journal. We offer various pathways to make your research accessible and make accessibility affordable. Please see our Open Access Statement and Journal Author Rights & Permissions support page for more information.
