Apoc­a­lyp­ti­ca is an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary, inter­na­tion­al, dou­ble-blind peer-reviewed aca­d­e­m­ic jour­nal pub­lished by the Käte Ham­burg­er Cen­tre for Apoc­a­lyp­tic and Post-Apoc­a­lyp­tic Stud­ies (CAPAS) at Hei­del­berg Uni­ver­si­ty. The jour­nal pub­lish­es thought-pro­vok­ing voic­es and diverse per­spec­tives invest­ed in the end of worlds.

As anthro­pogenic cli­mate change, increas­ing­ly polarised pol­i­tics, and the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic antic­i­pate the end of worlds, the idea of the apoc­a­lypse is gain­ing trac­tion in pop­u­lar and schol­ar­ly dis­cours­es. The notion of a doomed world sat­u­rates dis­cus­sions on pol­i­tics, eco­nom­ics, and tech­nol­o­gy, it is also preva­lent in film, art, media, and lit­er­a­ture. Cru­cial­ly, apoc­a­lypses and their imag­ined after­maths pro­duce eman­ci­pa­to­ry and cre­ative poten­tials that engage the pos­si­bil­i­ty of plur­al worlds, embod­ied futu­ri­ties, and non-lin­ear tem­po­ral­i­ties. These pos­si­bil­i­ties of the apoc­a­lypse are increas­ing­ly reflect­ed in the invo­ca­tion of haunt­ing sen­si­bil­i­ties, exper­i­men­tal imag­i­nar­ies or lived expe­ri­ence that employ the un/making of worlds.

Apoc­a­lyp­ti­ca explores the many sides of apoc­a­lyp­tic think­ing in order to inves­ti­gate an archive of the apoc­a­lyp­tic imag­i­nary and to explore expe­ri­ences of the apoc­a­lypse and post-apoc­a­lypse as they unset­tle the past, present, and future.

We are seek­ing sub­mis­sions from a broad range of fields in order to cham­pi­on the poten­tial of crit­i­cal think­ing and cul­tur­al analy­sis in the human­i­ties, social‑, and cul­tur­al sci­ence as an imag­i­na­tive and (poten­tial­ly) trans­for­ma­tive force. We also draw on the envi­ron­men­tal and nat­ur­al sci­ences, where appro­pri­ate. Our aim is to encour­age the pro­duc­tion of trans­dis­ci­pli­nary knowl­edge and debate on the apoc­a­lypse as a fig­ure of thought, a dis­course tra­di­tion, a con­crete expe­ri­ence, and a his­tor­i­cal phe­nom­e­non.

Colloquium: New Philologies

The word col­lo­qui­um is inter­pret­ed as “dis­cus­sion, inter­view, meet­ing, par­ley, con­ver­sa­tion”, and these terms already con­tain the essence of what this jour­nal is about: We would like to pro­vide a mul­ti­lin­gual (vir­tu­al) space for aca­d­e­m­ic voic­es from dif­fer­ent back­grounds to encounter each oth­er, exchange ideas and expe­ri­ences, nego­ti­ate the­o­ries and crit­i­cal approach­es in a process of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and trans­for­ma­tion that extends beyond the imme­di­ate par­tic­i­pants, and that rever­ber­ates in the groups and soci­eties that form its con­text. As an Open Access jour­nal, Col­lo­qui­um: New Philolo­gies is freely avail­able to every­one, and this is also to be under­stood as a state­ment invit­ing and sup­port­ing a con­cept of open, par­tic­i­pa­to­ry, and free sci­ence tran­scend­ing the lim­its of dis­ci­plines, cul­tures, and lan­guages.

WikiJournal of Humanities

The Wik­i­Jour­nal of Human­i­ties is a jour­nal devot­ed to the human­i­ties, arts, psy­chol­o­gy, and social sci­ences in their broad­est sense. It is a sis­ter to the Wik­i­Jour­nal of Med­i­cine and Wik­i­Jour­nal of Sci­ence, and part of the larg­er Wik­i­Jour­nal pub­lish­ing group. Its func­tion is to put arti­cles through aca­d­e­m­ic peer review for dual-pub­li­ca­tion as a sta­ble, citable ver­sion in the jour­nal, and as liv­ing doc­u­ments in Wikipedia and oth­er Wiki­me­dia projects.

The jour­nal is host­ed by the Wiki­me­dia Foun­da­tion, the same orga­ni­za­tion that runs Wikipedia. Arti­cles that pass peer-review are pub­lished as a cite­able, indexed PDF, and suit­able text and images are inte­grat­ed into Wikipedia and relat­ed projects (with a link to the indexed PDF). The vast read­er­ship of Wikipedia results in a high effec­tive impact of includ­ed works.

The jour­nal pub­lish­es both review arti­cles and orig­i­nal research in var­i­ous for­mats. Wik­i­Jour­nals enable aca­d­e­mics to con­tribute expert knowl­edge to the Wiki­me­dia move­ment in the aca­d­e­m­ic pub­lish­ing for­mat that direct­ly rewards them with citable pub­li­ca­tions. Includ­ed works are assigned DOI codes (per­ma­nent links to each work via Cross­ref).

The jour­nal tar­gets a broad pop­u­la­tion span­ning from advanced researchers and pro­fes­sion­als to stu­dents and layper­sons, where­in the lat­ter can get quick expla­na­tions of advanced terms by in-line links to Wikipedia.
