Post Identity, a national, fully refereed journal of the humanities, believes that to examine the ways in which categories such as race, gender, nation, and sexuality are constructed by means of powerful social narratives is only to begin the critique of essentialist notions of identity. We ask our contributors and our readers to push forward to the next level of inquiry and to ask: How shall these categories' essentializing tendencies be countered? We welcome a variety of theoretical perspectives and encourage submissions from all fields for which the critique of identity is of vital and central concern.
Our committment to innovative creative writing continues with the launch of University of Detroit Mercy Press. Our goal is to publish new and exciting fiction that speaks of and from America's urban centers.
