Public is a peer-reviewed, multimedia e-journal focused on humanities, arts, and design in public life.

We encourage public discussion and resource sharing through online and new media, including a multimedia interface to a growing archive of issues and submissions. Public connects disciplines such as the arts in economic development, humanities and social justice, and design and environmental stewardship, and often highlights more than one perspective on its subjects through collaboration with people across traditional divisions of knowledge and from multiple contexts (educational, artistic, business, governmental, neighborhood-based.) Public aspires to connect what we can imagine with what we can do. We are interested in projects, pedagogies, resources, and ideas that reflect rich engagements among diverse participants, organizations, disciplines, and sectors.
