Aims & Scope
The journal began as a natural outgrowth of the annual Chautauqua Lecture Series at Eastern Kentucky University. The journal seeks to provide a written counterpart to the series, bringing together a variety of scholars, creative artists, and public intellectuals in the exploration of a significant chosen theme approached from an interdisciplinary range of perspectives. Like the lecture series also, the journal aims to stimulate intellectual curiosity and to challenge our assumptions and attitudes for progressive ends and within the bounds of civil discourse.
The Chautauqua Journal invites scholarly and creative submissions related to the Chautauqua Lecture Series annual themes, for further consideration and review. After consideration by the general editors, submissions are sent for double peer review and authorial revisions are requested as necessary. All inquiries and submissions should be sent to the managing editor.
