MAPH’s new journal, Colloquium, is captivating the University’s intellectual and creative imagination. First, we made the UChicago Alumni news. Then UChicago Arts picked up the story. And why not? It’s fricking amazing.
From the story:
With so much to read, what is your niche?
Chaz Oreshkov: The work being done in MAPH interacts with real-world problems but at the same time retains a critical academic attitude. Colloquium succeeds because it’s both a lowbrow academic journal and a highbrow general reader’s magazine.
So you’re trying to be lowbrow.
Bill Hutchison: Lowbrow in the sense that we all get together in the great tavern of the mind to have amazing conversations, but feel tremendous joy about the kind of conversations we can have.
That’s MAPH, baby. Get on board.
