Quarterly Horse is a non-profit, open-access, peer-reviewed scholarly journal and podcast associated with the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the American Studies Association and the College of Arts & Sciences at Johnson & Wales University, Denver. Welcome.
QH essays get to the meaning of the subject at hand with no words wasted and engage some aspect of American life and culture.
We will publish essays that are scholarly and innovative (and brief). And we believe that creativity has a place in academic discourse, that the lyric essay and the scholarly essay should be friends.
These interviews will provide a critical framework for starting conversations about American culture, how we make it and how we make sense of it.
Hear American Studies at work as scholars talk with artists, filmmakers, chefs, writers, musicians, and fans.
