Still Point Journal

The LAHP-funded The Still Point Journal has recently published its sixth issue, Tangle. The aim of the journal is to encourage conversation and exchange between researchers from disciplines across the Arts & Humanities and in the academic space of London and the larger global community interacting with it. We hope that The Still Point Journal will engage readers and writers in new conversations and open up the niches of our research to new audiences.

If you would like to join the editorial board, please email Contributors should be currently affiliated with a research institution, although we are also interested in hearing from artists, designers and illustrators who would like to collaborate with researchers on their pieces.
