Critical Inquiry has been publishing the best critical thought in the arts and humanities for almost forty years. CI presents articles by eminent and emerging critics, scholars, and artists on a wide variety of issues central to contemporary criticism and culture, including neo-Darwinism, the Occupy movement, affect theory, and photographic automatism. The journal's broad focus creates juxtapositions and conceptual connections that offer new grounds for theoretical debate.
