Pivot: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies and Thought

About Pivot

Pivot is an annual multidisciplinary journal dedicated to publishing innovative critical writing from emerging and established academics. Each issue encourages scholars from a wide-range of fields to engage with a focused but multifaceted central topic, bringing into conversation their various disciplinary perspectives. By juxtaposing viewpoints and theoretical approaches that may otherwise remain disparate, Pivot creates a space in which readers can explore the intersections between various fields and modes of thought. Our mandate is to showcase scholarly work by graduate students and working academics, and to foster communication and cooperation between students and faculty across disciplin-ary boundaries. The topic of one issue per year corresponds with the theme of the York University English Graduate Program’s annual interdisciplinary conference. The journal invites contributions of scholarly articles relevant to the upcoming issue’s topic, in both English and French, from authors in all scholarly disciplines.
