Crisis Journal

 

Crisis is an open-access, peer-reviewed, not-for-profit journal that bridges the gap between scholarly research and creative practice. The journal focuses on analyses of intersecting systems of oppression, such as white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, and colonialism. We continue the tradition of thinkers who have worked at the intersections of theory and praxis, fiction and nonfiction, scholarly and popular works: Cidinha da Silva, Solmaz Sharif, Gloria Anzaldúa, Audre Lorde, Aimé Césaire—our inspirations. Although a handful of these thinkers are gaining acceptance within academia, none of them were initially accepted in academic spaces, much less published in academic journals. Even the most radical journals of decolonial and feminist scholarship have rigid expectations in regard to form, tone, and language, expectations that invisibilize personal experience and marginalize alternative forms of knowledge production. Crisis creates a space within academia that recognizes these forms of knowledge production and presentation as methodologically valid, theoretically rigorous, and academically important. Crisis accepts submissions in a variety of languages.
