Dissent is a quarterly publication of politics and culture that ranks among the handful of political journals read most regularly by U.S. intellectuals. A magazine of the left, Dissent is also a magazine of independent minds welcoming the clash of strong opinions. Each issue features reflective articles about politics in the U.S., incisive social and cultural commentary, plus the most sophisticated coverage of European politics to be found anywhere outside of Europe.

Capitalism: A Journal of History and Economics
Capitalism: A Journal of History and Economics offers a trans-disciplinary forum for the examination of the history of economic phenomena broadly conceived. It features original and peer-reviewed contributions by authors from across the humanities and social sciences on the historical dimensions of markets, capitalism, political economy, and economic thought. It is also interested in how economic questions interact with those of power, knowledge, race, class, and gender, as well as the interplay between the environment and the economy, in any region of the world. The journal aims to publish canon-questioning research that challenges and denaturalizes existing categories and modes of analysis. To those ends, we welcome any methodological or theoretical approach so long as there is a historical dimension to the analysis.

Early American Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal
Sponsored by The McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Early American Studies is now a quarterly journal. The main reason we decided to move from three to four issues a year is to accommodate the increasing number of submissions and McNeil Center-sponsored conferences. The latter, along with initiatives of past fellows and others, warrant the publication of two special/theme/guest-edited issues a year, along with the two regular issues. The journal is dedicated to publishing original research on the histories and cultures of North America in the Atlantic world before 1850. Contributors and subscribers span the variety of disciplines concerned with early America, including history, art history, literary studies, religious studies, music, philosophy, and material culture studies, among others.
