Purlieu is an international peer-reviewed publication, both print and electronic, committed to highlighting exceptional student work from around the world. In each issue, we showcase students’ essays hand-in-hand with relevant and distinctive perspectives of contemporary academic and cultural figures.
As a philosophical journal, we are less interested in the view which understands books as the world as we are in the perspective which understands books to be about the world. Like gargoyles attached to university walls, we recognize our dependence upon the university, but launch out grotesquely in our own direction, existing because of that which we critique and comment on.
Purlieu is an attempt to create something which is about the world, and about our students, our university, our discipline, and—with any luck—about you, our readers and participants.
