Second Issue of Puncta: Journal of Critical Phenomenology

Dear faculty and colleagues,

We are excited to announce that the second issue of Puncta: Journal of Critical Phenomenology, is now available. The open-access issue can be found by following the following link,, and selecting “current issue.” The second issue features pieces by Johanna Oksala and Beata Stawarska, among others.

As you may know, Devin, Sarah, Shannon, Kaja, Amie, and Martina launched the journal in 2017. Puncta is an open-access, peer-reviewed philosophical journal established with the specific intention of redirecting phenomenological intentionality. It is our belief that phenomenology is not a mere descriptive practice, but an enactment of critique, that is, an ongoing process of revealing and interrogating the concrete conditions, institutions, and assumptions that structure lived experience, phenomenological inquiry, and thinking. If you are not foamier with the journal and its mission, and would like to learn more, you can find more information here:

This fall, we moved to a rolling submissions policy. To continue generating visibility for the journal, we invite you to share the issue with colleagues to whom you think the work here would be of interest, as well as to submit to the journal.

We also are pleased to inform you that a special issue on Critical Phenomenology and Disability is forthcoming in 2020.

If you would like to get involved with the journal, do not hesitate to contact one of us.

We thank Daniela and, more broadly, the department for the support they have given us.


The Editors of Puncta

Martina Ferrari, Devin Fitzpatrick, Sarah McLay, Shannon Hayes, Kaja Jenssen Rathe, and Amie Zimmer
