The G+C Blog is the blogging platform of the peer-reviewed, open-access journal GENEALOGY+CRITIQUE, which is published by the London-based Open Library of Humanities (OLH). We post announcements around the activities of the journal, but also publish shorter essays, interventions, and commentaries on related topics. While GENEALOGY+CRITIQUE is positioned as a high-quality academic journal focusing on genealogical research and a broad conception of critical theory, the G+C Blog is an explicitly open platform providing a digital space for more experimental and subjective forms of writing in English, German, or French. Both the journal and the blog aim at:

  • analyzing contemporary social, ethical, political, cultural, juridical, economic, technological, communication, and media phenomena and transformations from historical-genealogical and/or critical theory perspectives;
  • cross-fertilizing critical genealogy and critical theory;
  • exploring the critical potentials of genealogical methods;
  • fostering dialogue between various schools of critical inquiry such as Marxism, the Frankfurt School, phenomenology, poststructuralism, and deconstruction;
  • confronting genealogical research and scholarship in critical theory with more current approaches in, for example, cultural and media studies, digital humanities, science and technology studies, as well as postcolonial, gender, and race studies.
