What are the aims of Hyphen Journal?
Hyphen Journal is an open-access online journal featuring a rich diversity of work that explores the interplay between thinking and making.
Hyphen Journal is about research-practice. The hyphen, the mark that links these two terms, provides the critical conceptual frame for reflections on research as practice and practice as research. What are the differences between the outcomes of research and the processes through which these are arrived at? What types of knowledge does each produce or call into question?
Hyphen Journal is inter-disciplinary and aims to provide a context for experiments in research writing and practice. We are open to a variety of contributions and welcome subject matter that explores or expands what constitutes creative processes of research, records of fieldwork, reflections on method or anti-method, on collaborative approaches, or thoughts on data-gathering.
Hyphen Journal is an opportunity to share and develop our research-practice, and to reconsider our place in the academy.
Hyphen Journal submissions are reviewed through a process of open peer review.
Hyphen Journal has been originally launched by the Hyphen Collective, a doctoral researcher-led initiative which started at the Centre for Research in Art and Media (CREAM) at the University of Westminster. The Hyphen Collective also organises exhibitions, talks, symposia and other events that bring different practices of creative research in conversation with each other. If you would like to contribute to one of our other activities, do let us know.
