Our Mission

The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal is an open-accessbi-annual research forum edited by graduate students of humanities, arts, and social sciences at the University of Connecticut (LCL, ELIN). The journal facilitates interdisciplinary collaboration towards cultural and social awareness, providing a locus for scholarly engagement across disciplines to promote critical thinking, research and creativity. The journal’s flexible focus centers on texts in a variety of languages, including but not limited to points of (dis)connection among worldwide literary, cultural and performance studies; digital, analogue and environmental humanities; translation and foreign language instruction.

Articles published in The Quiet Corner Interdisciplinary Journal go through a double-blind peer-review process. All articles are reviewed by graduates students and professors at the University of Connecticut and beyond. The journal’s editorial board organizes the issues and matches the articles with appropriate readers in the field.
