Coming Soon: Colloquies

Over the next several weeks, Arcade will introduce Colloquies, the feature we’ve developed over the past year with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  A new model of intellectual exchange, Colloquies gathers recent and forthcoming work on an emerging topic, from informal to peer-reviewed.  The feature intends to enrich conversations in the humanities by sharing ideas across modalities (e.g. books, journals, lectures, multimedia) and institutional boundaries; perhaps most important, it invites its readers to become contributors.  Among the first set of Colloquies are “The Nature of Literary Being,” curated by Nancy Ruttenburg; “Modernism’s Unfinished Business,” curated by Rey Chow; "Imagining the Oceans," curated by Margaret Cohen; and “21st-Century Marxisms,” curated by Adam Morris.  We’re eager to show Colloquies to the world, and will welcome your participation.
