re•bus is the postgraduate Art History and Theory journal of the School of
Philosophy and Art History at the University of Essex launched in Spring 2008.
Founded and edited by postgraduate students of the School, the journal publishes
peer-reviewed papers that present new research and fresh perspectives on art and
its histories as well as related aspects of cultural theory.
The aim of re•bus is to further critical debate in art and related fields
through the publication of the work of students of the School, and the
proceedings of postgraduate conferences. The range of approaches and subject
matters reflects the rich diversity of a School renowned for the scholarship of
its staff and students alike.
By publishing re•bus online, we hope to reach a wider audience than a
conventional print format would allow, producing a journal that reflects
innovative scholarship and editorial rigour rather than the stresses of
marketing and subscriptions. Our editorial strategy is one that embraces
interdisciplinarity and academic experimentation. We welcome submissions from
students as well as early career scholars outside of the School, whose work
reflects an interest in visual cultures.
