The Otherwise: The Journal of Cosmopolitics is a biannual journal publishing original thinking about pressing questions in fields such as aesthetics, anthropology, black thought, critical theory, contemporary philosophy, decolonial theory, environmental humanities, indigenous studies, psychoanalysis, political theory, and queer theory. We are committed to publishing work that neither fits into even inventive academic journals nor reflects the flattening of writing and thinking engendered by the system of academic publishing of the last decades. The Otherwise submits its essays to developmental editing and to a sensible form of peer review. 

We do not currently review unsolicited essays. Should you wish to submit a text, please send a pitch to
