Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge

A journal edited/founded by one of my favorite professors Ellen Berry (when I was a MA in cultural studies at Bowling Green State University):


Rhizomes oppose the idea that knowledge must grow in a tree structure from previously accepted ideas. New thinking need not follow established patterns.

Rhizomes promotes experimental work located outside current disciplines, work that has no proper location. As our name suggests, works written in the spirit of Deleuzian approaches are welcomed but not required.

We are not interested in publishing texts that establish their authority merely by affirming what is already believed. Instead, we encourage migrations into new conceptual territories resulting from unpredictable juxtapositions.
