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 the Future of Higher Education. The Society for the Future of Higher Education (SFHE) is an incubator and advocate for ideas, strategies, and pedagogies to lead higher education to a more inclusive, just, and equitable future.
