Inviting Manuscript Submissions for 2025–2026

From May 1 until July 31, prospective authors are invited to submit their manuscripts for review by the directors of punctum books (Eileen A. Fradenburg Joy and Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei) and its Editorial Advisory Board. This year we are looking to accept around twenty to twenty-five manuscripts for publication in 2025–2026.

We welcome submissions for monographs and edited collections from authors working in any field in the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, and architecture & design who want to publish books that are genre-queer and genre-bending and which take experimental risks with the forms and styles of intellectual writing.

Three primary concentrations for us are: (1) books that shift the paradigm in established disciplines; (2) books that help to create emerging transdisciplinary fields; and (3) books that play in the fields of creatively speculative thought.

In particular, we would like to invite women-identifying, BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+, and/or disabled authors to send in their manuscripts for consideration.

More information on the submission process can be found online.
