Colloquium Buzz

Issue 2 of Colloquium was featured on Bookforum’s Omnivore blog yesterday!

Also! “The Serpent, Subtle and Brazen: Idolatory, Imagemaking, and the Hebrew Bible,” an essay from Issue 2 by Carina Del Valle Schorske (MAPH ’13) was one of today’s Editor’s Picks over at Mosaic Magazine. She’s in great company with writers from The Times Literary Supplement, Commentary, Middle East Quarterly, and Moment.

Exciting stuff!



A Message from the Editors of Colloquium

q largeDear MAPHers, past and present –

Today is your last chance to register for Alumni Weekend and see what’s going on inside MAPH’s new journal, Colloquium. Colloquium is an online journal run entirely and independently by MAPH alumni and current students.

We’ll be launching our second issue at MAPH’s Alumni Weekend event, and it’s going to be fantastic. Issue 2.1 has Bauhaus, the Italian avant-garde, rebels and militants, sitars and soundscapes, three poets, short fiction, a cat called Mouloud, and a not-inconsiderable amount of spectroscopy.

At the University of Chicago and in MAPH in particular, we joined – for a lifetime – a community of humanists, world-changers, and fierce question-askers. We chase the ineffable and, in one form or another, we chronicle that pursuit. Those chronicles are how we talk together when we can’t talk together. When we founded Colloquium last year, it was to give a home to these chronicles-as-conversations.

The only thing better than having all these conversations happening in one online journal is having them face-to-face. Come and experience Colloquium at Alumni Weekend – or better yet, become a part of it.


Bill Hutchison

Founding Editor of Colloquium
