A fine scholarly journal, Angelaki is an intelligent and insightful look at the world of theoretical humanities.
Each issue of this journal features fascinating research and essays covering an impressive range of topics related to different areas of the humanities by world-renowned academics, covering, but not limited to, areas such as philosophy, culture and literature. This is unarguably a journal for those involved in the field, but there is plenty for those who simply consider themselves to be intellectual to get their teeth into. Angelaki is an A5 size publication, and is excellently produced and designed.

Theoretical humanities eh? Hmm, not sure we’ve particularly heard of that one. It seems to be a pretty wide-ranging subject, judging from the contributions of the scholars within, and even they recognise that ‘theoretical humanities’ is a rather contentious category. Whatever happened to the good old days of studying History, English, Biology, Chemistry and the like? At least we know what they are.
Perhaps that is the key to a successful (and stress-free) life as an academic. Whilst we’re not for a moment suggesting that Angelaki and the scholars within have taken such an approach, claiming to study something hugely complex and theoretical could have its pay-offs. If you study something significantly complex, then students won’t particularly want to attend your course at the university (trust us, we know this first hand). What’s more, in publishing some highly complex, theoretical work you can make it so difficult to unravel that no-one can truly say whether you are actually right or wrong, and any attempt to analyse your work on such grounds can simply be brushed off with a simple “You don’t quite seem to have grasped the complexities of this subject. Perhaps you would be better suited to Sports Science.”
So, for a trouble free (and student free, although perhaps they are the same thing) academic life, why not create your own complex, uber-theoretical discipline to follow. NB
