Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal encourages scholars to challenge the fragmentation of modern intellectual life. Since 1968, the journal has featured significant scholarship by leading thinkers from across the academy. Soundings aims to publish articles that open disciplines to each other, promote greater intellectual coherence, and engage readers in broad public and academic conversation.

The journal is affiliated with the Society for Values in Higher Education, a fellowship of teachers and others who care deeply about ethical issues—such as integrity, diversity, social justice, and civic responsibility—that face higher education and the wider society. The Society believes that such values call for study, reflection, discussion, and action. It pursues these ends through publications, projects, regional gatherings and conferences, and an annual meeting.
