The Antennae Project

Antennae (founded in 2006) is an independent, hybrid, peer reviewed journal. We are free to the public, non-funded by institutions, and not supported by grants or philanthropists. The Journal’s format and contents are informed by the concepts of ‘knowledge transfer’ and ‘widening participation’. Independent publications share histories of originality, irreverence, and innovation and Antennae has certainly been an important contributor to what will be remembered as the non-human turn in the humanities. The first issue of Antennae coincided with the rise of human-animal studies; a field of academic inquiry now become mainstream.


Our independent status has allowed us to give a voice to scholars and artists who were initially not taken seriously by mainstream presses. Through our creative approach, we have supported the careers of experimental practitioners and researchers across the world providing a unique space in which new academic fields like the environmental humanities and critical plant studies could also flourish. In January 2009, the establishment of Antennae’s Senior Academic Board, Advisory Board, and Network of Global Contributors has affirmed the journal as an indispensable research tool for the subject of environmental studies and visual culture. Still today, no other journal provides artists and scholars with an opportunity to publish full color portfolios of their work or richly illustrated essays at no cost to them or to readers. A markedly transdisciplinary publication, Antennae encourages communication and crossover of knowledge among artists, scientists, scholars, activists, curators, and students.
