Other Voices is an independent, award-winning, electronic journal of cultural criticism published at the University of Pennsylvania. Founded in March 1997, Other Voices regularly publishes provocative essays, interviews, roundtable discussions, lecture transcriptions, audio lectures, multimedia projects, translations and reviews in the arts and humanities. Other Voices is dedicated to fostering interdisciplinary dialogues while simultaneously maintaining respect for the strengths of traditional academic disciplines. In so far as this publication is successful, its existence questions the role of the for-profit academic press in the normalized process of scholastic publication. In face of real world distribution shortfalls and the exorbitant cost of many print publications, this project shall remain freely accessible to all. We strive to produce quality by utilizing a distributed collective to accomplish all administrative, production and editorial duties required by the journal with a minimum of overhead. In keeping with this the journal is home to a far-ranging group of contributors and editorial professionals including academics, independent scholars, graduate and undergraduate students.


Readers of the journal span a broad group including academics, independent scholars, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students and the general educated public. Other Voices maintains a significant international audience, the majority of whom live in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, continental Europe and India.
