DIFFRACTIONS is an online, peer reviewed and open access graduate journal for the study of culture. The journal is published bi-annually under the editorial direction of graduate students in the doctoral program in Culture Studies of the Lisbon Consortium, at Universidade Católica Portuguesa.

DIFFRACTIONS wishes to constitute a platform where graduate students and other young researchers can showcase their current research as well as reviews of the latest books of interest in the field. The scope of the journal is interdisciplinary and transcultural. We welcome submissions from a wide range of disciplines that share a common interest in the multiple ways cultures produce meaning, including but not limited to critical theory, cultural studies, comparative literature, translation studies, postcolonial studies, visual culture, film, media and gender studies, popular culture, creative industries, museum studies, memory studies, amongst others.

DIFFRACTIONS aims at publishing innovative and critical scholarly work at the intersection of disciplinary fields and make it accessible and available to the international community.
