About the Refract Journal

Refract: An Open Access Visual Studies Journal is an experimental, non-canonical platform for the discussion of visual culture through diverse histories and cultures.

A graduate student initiative, Refract publishes annually and is peer-reviewed. We invite the interdisciplinary, the multi-sensorial, the new, the difficult, and the in-between in critical analyses of visual cultures from diverse geographies and histories. We publish scholarly articles; essays; poetry; book, media, and exhibition reviews; and other creative contributions.
