interdisciplinary and international journal in the open field of colour studies

The Colour Turn is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to promote and advance interdisciplinary research into Colour Studies.


Jour­nal Over­view

The Colour Turn is a peer-review­ed jour­nal that seeks to pro­mo­te and advan­ce inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry rese­arch into Colour Stu­dies. As its name figu­ra­tively and liter­al­ly sug­gests, the aim of the inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry and inter­na­tio­nal jour­nal Colour Turn is to turn over a new leaf in colour rese­arch. The jour­nal invi­tes high-qua­li­ty rese­arch arti­cles and papers that imple­ment inno­va­ti­ve approaches—including sci­en­ti­fic metho­do­lo­gies, his­to­ri­cal recon­struc­tion, collec­tion and clo­se rea­ding of old and new mate­ri­als, empi­ri­cal expe­ri­ments, digi­tal huma­nities, ana­ly­ti­cal, com­pa­ra­ti­ve and cri­ti­cal reviews—that open up new hori­zons in colour sci­en­ces and colour stu­dies. The jour­nal pro­mi­ses a col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve effort of high-pro­fi­le edi­to­ri­al and review exper­ti­se from all around the world in the field of colour rese­arch.
