solomons seal hyperrhiz logoabout us

We publish long-form scholarly projects built partially or wholly in online format: electric objects that cannot be printed.

Hyperrhiz Electric follows the long-held rhizomatic ethic of our partner journals Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge and Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures. We value the strange, the partial, the particular and the experimental: scholarship that might be held to exist outside the increasingly regularizing archival and metrics-driven tendencies of the academy.

As Roland Barthes declares, "What love lays bare in me is energy." Hyperrhiz Electric seeks to embody electric scholarship: that is, scholarship that excites a passion for overlooked and orphaned ideas and source material: bringing it alive and imbuing it with love. Care/curae as a life-affirming practice.
