In the wide array of ideas represented by Arcade, our Publications offer the most formal kind of writing: scholarly journals and, coming in 2024, an encyclopedia.

All three of the journals are native to Arcade and appear only online; two of the three, Dibur and Republics of Letters, are conventionally peer-reviewed while the third, Occasion, is overseen by an advisory board whose members serve as editors and reviewers of particular numbers.

The connections between the journals and the rest of Arcade mean that readers may discover an idea in its first expression as a post in the Interventions feature, then encounter it again as a contribution to a Colloquy and finally in a peer-reviewed article. This life-cycle of ideas is central to Arcade's mission of showing the humanities in the world.



Arcade sponsors three journals in the humanities: Dibur, Occasion, and Republics of Letters

Occasion Logo


Occasion is thus named both to signal the “event” of the convening and publication of a set of papers on a specific topic in interdisciplinary humanities, and to prompt—“to occasion”— such collaboration and exploration. With the aid of a distinguished editorial board, we publish special issues on timely and critical topics.
