Aims & Scope
Kaleidoscope is devoted to graduate scholarship at the intersections of philosophy, theory, and/or practical application of qualitative, interpretive, and critical/cultural communication research. Particular areas of engagement for consideration include both traditional and experimental approaches. We encourage contributions that are rigorous and lively, and that are attentive to scholarship without sacrificing creativity or consequence—while we seek to cultivate the currently developing, we do not wish to sacrifice rigor and quality in pursuit of novelty.
Kaleidoscope offers graduate students an educational and professional outlet during a time when some of the most energizing new disciplinary research is done in areas that focus on qualitative approaches to communicative interaction. Because its attention is devoted to current graduate students’ developments in qualitative, interpretive, and critical/cultural work and is a collaborative, faculty-student juried endeavor, Kaleidoscope offers a perspective that is unique among Communication Studies journals.
